Apple introduced a “Low Power” mode with the Series 8 and Ultra watches, this mode essentially disables the “Always On Display” (AoD), background heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen readings and automatic workout tracking. Low Power Mode is disabled if you enable Workouts, however, it can be manually enabled during a workout where GPS and heart rate readings are required in limited amounts, such as your morning run. Cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity is also limited, making it essentially an ordinary smartwatch.
