Apple introduced their first smartwatch the other day, the new Apple Watch, which will launch in early 2015. The device comes with some impressive features, although one thing that Apple did not mention at the press event was the Apple Watch battery.
According to an Apple spokesperson, who spoke to re/code, Apple are expecting people to charge their Apple Watch once a day, this would mean that the device probably has a battery life of around one day.
Apple spokeswoman Nat Kerris declined to provide an estimate on expected battery life, but said the company expects users will charge their Apple Watches once daily. “There’s a lot of new technology packed into Apple Watch and we think people will love using it throughout the day,” Kerris said. “We anticipate that people will charge nightly which is why we designed an innovative charging solution that combines our MagSafe technology and inductive charging.”
Battery life is one of the issues that smartwatch manufacturers are facing, and Apple are said to be hoping ti improve the battery life of their device before it launches early next year.
As yet, Apple has not released an hardware specifications for the new Apple Watch, we are expecting to get some more details closer to the release of Apple’s first wearable gadget.
