I have the Galaxy Watch 6, model SM-R960
linked to my Galaxy S22 Ultra, model SM-S908B/DS, using the latest, fully updated version of Samsung Wear and the latest version of the Watch plug in. When the watch battery reaches 15% through normal usage, a notification appears on the watch advising something like 'needs charging, or turn on power saver'
This notification does not persist (ie until
acknowledged, dismissed or the watch is
charged) like it used to on my Galaxy Watch 4.
This means that, if I don't see the notification, I
can miss the fact my Watch needs charging and suddenly find it dies.
It would be marvellous if this notification
persisted, ie continued to show whenever the watch is looked at, until acknowledged or dismissed. Even better, if the notification was also sent to my phone.
Alternatively, I note that a notification appears
on my phone when the Watch reaches 100% after being put on charge, seemingly from the Watch plug-in. Perhaps this could be utilised to send a similar notification, but for when the charge is low?

Interesting idea, very useful, it could be done as before going to bed I get a notification "charge to monitor sleep".

A simple set a last until time, say 6PM, if it calculates it cannot alerts to charge.

Anyhow I personally thought the 15% is a good trigger to remind me to not to let my SoC drop too low, as too low and max tend to reduce battery life.

Have a look at Routines. Maybe you could do a quick routine to alert you of phone or watch.

The watch doesn't appear as a device that its condition, ie charge state, can be used as a trigger

I have a galaxy watch 5 and I always have my on as battery saver and usually when it gets to 15% it says battery low so it reminds me to charge it or if its low and it knows my bedtime routine it notifies me that I need to charge it...there's been a new update and I haven't had the notification of battery low until now less than 10% just get vibrations so annoying cause I'm useless at charging it up but rely on my watch 😂
