How to Turn Off Apple Watch Ultra

Turning off your Apple Watch Ultra should only take a few seconds. To do so, follow these instructions:

  1. Press and hold the “side button” (on the right, below the digital crown).
  2. Once you’ve held the button long enough, you’ll see a new screen appear. Press the “Power icon” on the top right.
  3. A new screen will appear with a slider that reads “Power Off”. Swipe the slider right to turn off your Apple Watch Ultra.

If your Apple Watch touch screen isn’t working, you can restart it and then try these steps again.

Turning your Apple Watch Ultra back on is even easier.

Press and hold the side button until you see the Apple logo appear. If it doesn’t power on immediately, it means your Apple Watch battery is likely dead.

So, just charge your watch and wait to see what happens.

A red lightning bolt will appear if the battery is low; it will turn green when it starts charging.

Ideally, allow your Apple Watch to charge for at least 30 minutes before attempting to turn it on again.
