See the manual, page 18:

Use Apple Watch without its paired iPhone

Although you need an iPhone to do most things with Apple Watch, you can still do several things with Apple Watch without having an iPhone in range.
  • Play music from a synced playlist on Apple Watch
  • Use the watch, alarms, timers, and the stopwatch
  • Keep track of your activity (stand, move, exercise) with the Activity app
  • Track workouts

Why would you ever turn BlueTooth off? It uses no power (despite some myths that say otherwise) unless it is actively connected to a device, and even then the energy used is so little that it won't affect your battery life by more than a few minutes on a charge.
