The Watch 2 saves a lot of power by keeping W5 idle, which is an advantage of hybrid operating system. And use the low-power 2700 chipset to perform low-level tasks. W5 chip should only be used for stuff like active apps and unofficial watch faces. When the watch is in Smart mode, it operates in that manner by default.
