[Wear OS] Always ON screen option
It would be nice to have an "Always On screen" option available in Configuration during workout. Sometimes I have to touch the screen or press buttons to check workout state. The problem is that sometimes those commands minimize the Swim.com app, forcing me to unlock the watch, open apps list and choosing Swim.com app again...
This feature would help to check the workout during the swiming.
While talking about this feature, it would be nice to also have a "turn on on movement" feature. It would save battery for those whose device consumes it a lot.
A year from your request, not sure if the app changed meanwhile.
What I notice is that even if I have my Apple Watch series 7 set to 'Always on', the metrics displayed on the screen update only on wrist up or clicking on a physical button. The built in Workout app by apple works differently (better in that regard): the screen updates constantly, but milliseconds are shown only on wrist up (or maybe different movement).
I also feel that the current watch app doesn't show well the current status: I need to basically stop at the end of a lane, press a button and read to see where I stand with my workout. Pretty pointless for a guided workout.0
Thank you for contacting Swim.com.
We regret that you are having this issue.
When the watch is set to Always On mode, the function works well when the screen is bright, but when the screen is slightly dull, Always On mode does not function to conserve battery life.
Nonetheless, we'll work to review and research this function in order to enhance it for a better app experience.
Please let us know if we can assist any further.
Have a great day!0
