"In the next few months, you should soon see a system update on your device labeled ‘System Version: H'," a Community Manager at Wear OS, Google wrote in a blog post on Thursday.

The new battery saver mode that would come with the "H Update" to Android-based smart-watches would extend the device battery further by turning on "Battery Saver" to only display the time once your battery falls below 10 percent.

"Additionally, after 30 minutes of inactivity your watch will go into deep sleep mode to conserve battery," the post added.

Wih the "Smart App Resume" users would be able to pick up where they left off across all apps on their watches.

The search-engine giant has also included a 2-step power off functionality that would enable users to turn off their watches by holding the power button until they see the power off screen and then choose to either "power off" or "restart."

"This update will be progressively rolling out over the coming months. Your device may not immediately be eligible for this update and will be determined by your watch manufacturer. Some functionality may vary by device," the post said.
