The new Theater Mode in watchOS 3.2 can do more than keep you from annoying others when you’re at the movies. If you track your sleep with your Apple Watch, Theater Mode can help you get some extra shut-eye.
It’s quick and easy to turn on Theater Mode. The setting toggles your watch into silent mode and also stops the screen from lighting up when you raise your wrist.
That’s great cinema etiquette, but it also will keep your Apple Watch from shattering the darkness in your bedroom if you happen to move your arm as you sleep.
Once you’ve updated to watchOS 3.2, it’s totally simple to turn on Theater Mode.
On your watch face, you will now see the Theater Mode icon in the top middle position (as per the screenshot above). Once enabled, you will need to tap your watch face to show the time.
Note: Theater Mode won’t affect the haptic feedback provided by Apple Watch’s Taptic Engine. If you want to dial down the ferociousness of those attention-getting wrist taps, you can tweak your taptic feedback settings.
I hope this quick tip keeps all you Apple Watch sleep trackers from getting an unwelcome blast of light in the middle of the night. Please let me know if you find any other other alternative uses for Apple Watch Theater Mode in watchOS 3.2.
