New owner and new to the forums. How do you disable the auto switch to essential mode?

Open the Essential Mode app from your app launcher. Swipe to the right and you'll see a toggle to have the watch auto-switch to Essential mode. You can turn it off from there.

Can anyone let me know how to get out of essential mode, without a restart or docking on charger? I've selected it but can't get back to smart mode. Only got it yesterday so still trying to figure things out!

Hey also new to the Ticwatch and love it so far.
Cherry on the top for the essential mode would be, if you could select at least one "complication" that shows text.
For my use case I'm receiving my blood glucose on the watch, the app has a complication showing the glucose level as numbers.
If essential mode could display that information (updated every 5min) it would be just awesome!
Thank you

A configurable essential mode would be excellent. As a builder I'm much more concerned with the weather and my schedule than my step count.

Is there any way to have the ticwatch pro 3 in essential mode with the battery symbol as a percentage because the 3 bars are pretty uninformative. i love an option to change this in the future

thanks

Hello. I would like to see in LCD mode that I have notification. For example some easy distinguishable icon instead of step count. Wonder if other users would like it too...
Yes- I would love that. The date, time, and battery symbols are all great, but the ability to change the 4th data point to something else (unseen notifications is my top choice) would be fantastic.

Switching out of Essential Mode requires a restart because the watch has to load the full Wear OS. You just hold the top button until the watch restarts (about 5 seconds).
