Yes, the Apple Watch Series 5 allows you to disable "always on display"

And is that many of you have the same doubt as we had it since Apple did not confirm this option in the keynote and in case of doing so we do not know. In any case it is important to know that Whenever we want to deactivate this always-on screen option, we will be able to do it.

This should mean a large increase in the autonomy of the device since although the consumption of having the screen always on is low, something has to be noted. Therefore we will have to wait for the first tests of the watch to see how much autonomy increases or decreases with this «always on display»Of the new Apple Watch Series 5.

This is one of the great novelties with which the watch was introduced, in addition to the built-in compass o the 32 GB of internal storage which now has the new Apple Watch model. The good thing about this always-on screen function is that the watch is capable of modifying the spheres and other content that we see on the screen such as complications, so that it consumes much less and when we turn the wrist everything is activated again.

But those users who want to save more battery and do not need or do not want to have the Apple Watch screen always on can deactivate this function. We really do not think it is a good idea to do this since it seems more comfortable to always have the screen active and see the time at all times along with the basic information of the spheres, but this is an option that we will have in cases in which we need the maximum autonomy on the watch and that even if it is little, something has to be noticed.
