Apple Watch Battery Life is 'About a Day Right Now' But Apple is Working to Improve That

Apple has yet to reveal what the battery life of its upcoming watch will be; however, sources say 'it's about a day right now', reports Re/code.

Expected battery life was a glaring omission in an otherwise impressive parade of features and specs. And after ignoring it completely during the Apple Watch’s onstage debut, the company stalwartly refused comment on it during the device demos that followed. There’s a good reason for that. Sources tell me that Apple isn’t yet happy with the watch’s battery life, which isn’t going to break any industry standards. “It’s about a day right now,” said one, adding that Apple is working on various modifications ahead of the device’s 2015 launch to improve it.

When asked to comment, Apple refused to provide an estimate of battery life but did say they expect users to charge the device daily.

“There’s a lot of new technology packed into Apple Watch and we think people will love using it throughout the day,” said Apple spokeswoman Nat Kerris. “We anticipate that people will charge nightly which is why we designed an innovative charging solution that combines our MagSafe technology and inductive charging.”

No solar panel, but just a good ol' motion-based charger - technology from 50 years ago

Its a decent start by Apple on a wrist device. Of course lot of improvements are needed specifically on the thickness and battery life. I for one wont be buying it.

What idiot would by a watch that has a days worth of juice? A 25 cent bubble gum watch can last for years.

What delusional assumes this will be. The final battery that lasts a day. Gum flavore lasts a few minutes but who would want to save fun over a year? Think of healthy teeth, not sugar chewing gum that you'll be saving.

Solar panel integration maybe?
