How to Authorize Theater Mode on Your Android Wear Smartwatch


If you have an Android Wear smartwatch running in the 5.0 version, you also gain a new feature called Theater mode.  The feature allows your wearable to behave in a non-intrusive way during your offline experience.  It’s the best mode when you’re sleeping, watching movies or during family dinner.


When the Theater mode is authorized, a tilt or raise of your wrist will trigger a stop to the lighting of your Android Wear and vibration alert will also cease.  In short, you get a silent mode for your wearable.  Since you don’t benefit from the lighting and vibration alerts, your battery life is also extended which is something like “getting two goals with a single setting.”
