How do I turn off / power cycle the Apple Watch?

Like all of Apple's mobile devices the Apple Watch does not feature a simple on/ off button. Users can power down the device or restart it (power cycle, reboot) by doing a long press on the side button and swiping right on the display.

To wake your Apple Watch press and hold the side button until the Apple logo appears.
