If the watch is turned off will it automatically turn on when placed on the charging dock?

Would like to leave on a nice looking stand without constantly charging since don't wear my Apple Watch every day and have a great looking stand by Just Mobile. However, if placed on the stand which houses the watch charger it will automatically switch it on if I have it turned off, why?

    just like any apple iOS/Watch product they turn on when connected to power. you could place it on the dock if you unplug it from the back or the outlet.

  • My Apple watch 2, when placed on the wireless charger will power up in 'Nightstand mode'. It briefly (about 5 seconds) displays the time in landscape, on its side, when touched or nudged. The watch detects the slightest vibration, so if its placed on your bedside table, and you nudge the table, it will display the time. You can switch 'Nightstand mode' off from your Watch application on the iPhone, under General, scroll down to Wake Screen and Nightstand Mode is just below it. Hope this helps.
