Apple Watch Runs For 18 Hours After One Time Charge
For a watch which is coming with plenty of astonishing features, battery is arguably one of the most important concerns. You know I’m referring to the Apple Watch whose battery life is being seriously questioned by the tech folks.
One time battery charge of the watch in question will last for about 18 hours, Apple chief told while he was speaking at a media event at San Francisco.
“We think that Apple Watch is quickly going to become integral to your day, and so we’ve designed it with all-day battery life across a range of activities,” Mr. Cook said. “During a typical day you can expect 18 hours—so that works for most people, I think.”
The next thing, which then strikes the mind, is the distribution of the power among the functionalities of the watch. The Cupertino-based company has explained that the 18 hours life of its wonder watch consists of:
“90 time checks, 90 notifications, 45 minutes of app use, and a 30-minute workout with music playback from Apple Watch via Bluetooth.”
The estimated battery life is based on Apple’s recent testing of the device. In the testing activity, a user was told to look at the watch five times every hour all day. The company has mentioned on its website that the “battery life varies by use, configuration and many other factors; actual results will vary.”
If we compare the battery life of Apple watch with other competing devices from Motorola Mobility LLC, LG Electronics Inc. And Samsung Electronics., we may conclude that the Apple masterpiece isn’t very superior in this regard. In fact, all the devices give similar performance as the Apple Watch.
Even if the battery is as good as other rivals, it is acceptable. But something which can worry the makers and users of the watch can be analysts’ predictions about the fall of its performance. They believe that when the watch will be used for different purposes — for sending messages or making phone calls — the battery life will be reduced.
What can compensate the users who will pay $10,000 or more is Apple’s plan to offer the battery replacement options — thing which it did for iPads and iPhones too. So I believe if you have planned to go for the amazing Apple watch, you may like to give it a try, ignoring the little this and that.
