  3. To set off-hours when the always-on display display automatically turns off, open the Settings app User-added image > Always-On Display > Customize.
Note that turning on always-on display impacts your watch's battery. When always-on display is turned on, Versa 2 has a battery life of up to 3 days.
Many clock faces have their own always-on display mode. If a clock face doesn’t have this feature, you see the default always-on display clock face. To adjust what’s shown on the default always-on display clock, open the Settings app User-added image > Always-On Display > Customize.
