Why does my Apple Watch have a red flashlight?
When using the bright white light in a dark environment, your eyes invariably transition from Night Vision to Day Vision. This can hurt your eyes and even cause one’s sleep to vanish. Red light helps avoid this problem as it doesn’t break your night vision. It’s even less disturbing to wildlife and attracts fewer bugs. So, if there’s a pet sleeping nearby the red light of your Apple Watch won’t disturb him. For this reason, Apple Watch has a red flashlight.
Hope that makes sense!
