Keep in mind that Always On Watch Face feature can drain the battery faster than normal. Based on our own experience, this can shorten battery usage to about more or less a day instead of the usual 2 or 3. If this is fine with you, then go ahead and check out the steps below.

  1. Activate the screen of your Galaxy Watch Active by pressing any buttons, or by swiping.
  2. Once the screen is on, swipe from the top.
  3. Tap on Settings icon (cog or gear icon).
  4. Scroll to Watch Faces.
  5. Select the Watch Always On option.
  6. Move the slider to the right to turn it on.
