Default watch face on while watch in standby?

i am not sure where to post this but i feel this subsection maybe correct as there is a lot of topics for aw-414, iconbit callisto and other watches.

well... i have the callisto 100 watch that i got from amazon.

I want to use my watch as a companion to the phone (note3) and i achieved that with swapp link.

now, part 2.

Is there no way to have the watch always on? in low power mode something like the sony smartwatch 2 does.

it makes no sense calling it a watch if i have to press the power button every time to see the time.

The Sony smartwatches use either transreflective or Oled you can't achieve what you want without using Oled screen... You can download clock view from the play store but even on stock lowest screen brightness will slaughter your battery...

Screen always on = 6-8 hoursbattery life with no apps running or syncing
Screen always on w/ syncs = 3-4 hours
