I am constanly waking up my watch's screen by mistake. Is there an option to wake up the screen only by using the button? Or can you add such an option?

Thank you but I have this option disabled, it is caused by touching the screen, not tilting the watch. For example when I'm reading the book I am laying on the couch and have my hand between my knees. The watch is constantly waking up and even if I have lock screen with pattern enabled all the time I can feel vibrations because pattern drawing is ran by mistake. It is annoying and it drains battery. So there should be an option to wake up the screen only by pushing the button.

This option is definitely needed. I am constantly waking my watch up when crossing my arms or resting it on my leg when sitting.

Another "me too" post here, as there is no option for voting on this forum. I'd really like this feature too. The watch gets activated all the time and sometimes settings get changed by accident.

Never mind. 10 seconds after posting this I figured out this option has been added in the mean time.

Greetings guys! - For the others that need to know where this option is On the Current version of the software
On the watch go to Settings->Preference-> Disable "Touch to light up" It is toward the bottom of the list. Have a great day guys.
