When Apple introduced the Apple Watch during its September 9 event in Cupertino, California, they highlighted several features of the company's first ever wearable device. However, they were particularly mum regarding on detail -- how long the Apple Watch's battery will last when used.
Now reports have surfaced, suggesting that the smartwatch's battery life may be good only for a full day's use. As reported by Re/code, the Apple Watch is expected to last for one day on a single charge. However, Apple is purportedly not pleased with that kind of battery performance, and the company is said to be busying themselves finding ways of making the Apple Watch's battery last longer, that is before the device hits stores early next year.
Apple, for its part, has not made any statement regarding this report. The company did say that it expects the device's users to charge every day because of the Apple Watch's inductive charging system.
It should be noted that other smartwatches too get by with only a day's use. Perhaps it is fair to expect that Apple's device may only be capable of lasting on a similar duration. Given the wearable device's limitation in size, it is indeed difficult to incorporate a larger battery in gadgets like these. Moreover, manufacturers are just beginning to figure out how to make these things, and like any new technology, they are still making their way through the learning curve.
But on other hand, this is Apple we are talking about. If there is anyone who can figure it out, it would be them. Besides, the mobile manufacturing giant still has a few months to make it work. It is safe to say that fans of the Apple Watch are rooting for Apple to succeed.
