    Just wear it. You'll be fine with a new watch. It will last all day.

    I believe you’re referring to the “Always On Display (AOD) feature, which is only available on Series 5 models. My Watch is a Series 3, so I can’t speak personally about whether or not this feature drains the Watch’s battery. However, it seems that some people have reported that it does. Some folks opt out of this feature. If you want to earn how to turn the AOD on or off, check out this article from Apple Support: https://support.apple.com/guide/watc...b87e2a/watchos

    This.

    Just wear it and don't "baby" it. Just do your normal everyday routines and see how much battery you have left at the end of the day. You'll be fine.

    So don’t worry about the always on display being on or off Since I’ve heard that uses more battery

    That will not help at all, but having your iPhone close to your watch (i.e., in your pocket, definitely within a few feet) will help a great deal. The further away they are, the more power the watch has to provide to the BT radio to sync data (or to use WiFi or cellular to connect to network services, which take even more power.)

    Try turning off AOD one day just to see what the difference is. Then you can decide for yourself if it is worth it.

    is it normal to charge your Apple Watch every night? this morning I was at 97% and right now I’m at 76%. I didn’t know if it was normal to charge my series 5 every night or not

    It seems normal. My series Rive is usually in the 30s or less when I out it in the charger. Usually 14 hours a day I wear it.

    That is Apple's design intention, yes. The watch is meant to be fully charged overnight and lasting 18 hours until you go to sleep again.

    That doesn't mean you have to do it that way, but Apple designed the watch to give adequate battery life to monitor your activity and provide access to apps and notifications while you are awake and charge while you are asleep.

    I charged my watch last night to 100%. I took it off the charger in the middle of the night. Right now it’s at 94% which isn’t a big deal at all but what made it down

    That’s completely normal! There are always functions running in the background. I can’t say specifically which ones but this happens. I really think that your watch is fine and you need to stop worrying about it and just enjoy it.
