How To Activate Night Mode On Apple Watch Ultra

Night Mode on Apple Watch Ultra can help you feel less tired at night, especially when you are asleep. The Night Mode will adjust the color of the display on your watch to be more natural and soft, which can minimize strain on your eyes and let you have a good rest at night.

In this article, we’ll tell you how to activate Night Mode on Apple Watch Ultra in detail. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the Watch app

  1. Make sure the watch is connected to an iPhone and charged to at least 50%. 
  1. Turn on ‘Night Mode in the settings app on your phone.
  1.  Open up the Settings app on your Apple Watch (the Digital Crown button at the top) 
  1. Scroll down to find Night, then tap it
  1. Toggle Enable switch and you’re good to go! We recommend turning off all of the apps that use a lot of power before bedtime and unplugging any devices or charging cables nearby.

 You’ll get a better night’s sleep with less light waking you up in the middle of the night! And when you wake up in the morning, don’t be surprised if you feel more refreshed than ever before because sleeping well can make all the difference. 


But not only does it help regulate your body clock but studies have shown that people who sleep well are healthier too- so make sure you turn on Night Mode to protect your health as well as your eyesight! 

It may take some time to adjust to the change but once you do, you’ll notice just how much easier it is for you to fall asleep and stay asleep. Plus, being healthy will have its benefits too- like having more energy during the day.

Step 2: Choose Your Watch Face

The next step is to choose your watch face. This can be done by going to the Settings app on your iPhone and then tapping General. 

Once you’re there, select Display & Brightness followed by scrolling down to see the different screensavers. Select any of them if you don’t want to use the default one or customize it with a photo from your phone’s camera roll or iCloud Photo Library.

 If you do go for customization, be sure to check out all the options available. For example, you can change things like turning off dynamic backgrounds or turning on a breathing screen for nighttime.

 You can also set up a reminder for yourself that will activate night mode when you set it. You’ll need to set an alarm that goes off at 11 pm, tap on Remind me, and then tap Turn on now.

Step 3: Change Watch Face Settings

  1.  Open the Watch app on your iPhone, select General, then Date & Time. 
  1.  Click on Daylight Savings and turn it off by setting Start to October 5th, 8:00 PM 
  1.  Turn off Turn On Automatically, so the watch is sure to be in sync with the timezone and daylight savings settings set on your iPhone
  1. Return to the previous screen where you selected General and tap on Night Shift.
  1. In this mode, the screen will turn a deep blue hue at sunset (approximately 6:00 pm) as well as anytime you manually activate it by swiping up from the bottom of your phone’s display or tapping on the moon icon in Control Center for iOS 11 devices.

 Some people prefer to leave the night shift activated all day long while others may want to use it only at certain times during the day.

 If you want to disable night shift when using Apple Watch, swipe up from the bottom of your phone’s display until you see the Night Shift control panel, which will show either Off or On.

How Do I Make My Apple Watch Screen Black At Night?

Apple provides a nifty Night mode that enables your watch to go dark in low-light situations so you can save battery life and avoid harsh brightness on your retinas. 

Go to Settings > General > Accessibility, scroll down and tap Night Shift, then toggle the slider on. Now when it’s time for bed, just head to the Control Center on your iPhone or iPad and turn Night Shift on manually.

 If you don’t have an iOS device nearby, swipe up from the bottom of your watch face to open Glances. Tap Night and select Turn On. Your screen will switch to black and you’ll notice how much easier it is on your eyes. 

Does The Apple Watch Ultra Have A Temperature Sensor?

The watch does not have a temperature sensor, which might seem like an omission but makes sense as there are lots of external factors that can impact the reading. 

It’s also important to remember that it is primarily used for tracking your heart rate, so any high or low temperatures would just be reflected in the corresponding reading. 

Some users on Reddit were also quick to point out that the watch was never advertised as having a temperature sensor. 

One Redditor, who goes by mike Taylor and claims to work at Genius Bar (the barbershop), said: The display will show you if it’s warm or cold outside and if you’re getting a fever.

How Do I Stop My Apple Watch From Lighting Up At Night?

To activate night mode on your Apple Watch, you’ll need to turn off the Wrist Detection setting. You can find this in Settings > General > Wrist Detection. 

Once it’s disabled, your watch should automatically lock and enter night mode. Just remember that any interactions with the watch face (e.g., a tap or a shake) will wake it up and display on-screen notifications in the middle of the night. 

If you don’t want to be bothered by alerts at night, you can set Do Not Disturb via Control Center so as not to receive phone calls, text messages, or notifications from apps. 

There are also some third-party sleep tracking apps like Sleep Cycle that might help improve your sleep quality.


Apple knows that it’s hard to see on the device when it gets dark, so they included a night mode. This mode will change the display to dark and white text so you can see what is going on. 

It’s also worth noting that this isn’t the only change this mode will have. When night mode is activated, your watch face will turn to black with white lettering for better readability in low-light environments.
