I can not find any info on how to manually turn just the screen off to save battery without waiting for it to time out.

Is there an option , way to tap it, setting a button up to turn screen off when tapped, something? I find it impossible that the only way to turn screen off is for it to time out. I dont want it to go into theater mode, Im not going to sleep, I dont want to turn the watch off. I just want to put the screen to sleep until the next time I want to look at it. Help!!!!

Thats right, forgot all about that, and amazingly enough, after 2 dozen google searches, that solution never came up. Thank you.  Who says google knows everything?? LOL
