Always-on states

Always-on states are designed to display the time information with ultra-low power consumption. The Galaxy Watch Designer automatically generates an Always-on version of your watch face.
Because the Always-on state is set as low power mode, there is restriction to represent the color. Samsung recommends a design that uses no more than 15% of the available pixels in always-on states. If your watch faces use significantly more than that, they will be rejected. If an Always-on version of your watch face is not created, a default version will be displayed.
