Apple Watch battery life revealed: Claims $349 gadget will last less than nineteen hours on a single change.

Even Apple hasn’t cracked the smartwatch battery code: A new report suggests the upcoming Apple Watch will provide up to 3.5 hours of app use between charges. ‘For the first time, people with knowledge of the Apple Watch’s development have provided us with the specific performance targets Apple wants to achieve for the Apple Watch battery, but the actual numbers may fall short of those targets,’ 9to5mac’s Mark Gurman said. ‘According to our sources, Apple opted to use a relatively powerful processor and high-quality screen for the Apple Watch, both of which contribute to significant power drain.’ It says that Apple wanted the Watch to provide roughly 2.5 to 4 hours of active application use versus 19 hours of combined active/passive use, 3 days of pure standby time, or 4 days if left in a sleeping mode,’ it says.Recent report has been suggesting Apple plans to start shipping its highly anticipated Watch to the United States by March-end, and currently it’s polishing the OS and testing the battery of the device.

Apple is putting the finishing touches to its Watch ahead of an expected launch in March – and yesterday released a test version of the software that will link it to an iPhone. ‘Additionally, the instructions inside of the Bluetooth menu specifically indicate that Apple will release a dedicated ‘Apple Watch app’ for setting up and controlling the wearable device. Apple has been aiming to make the watch last for about 19 hours, and concerns about the battery life was a key factor in pushing the release date back from late 2014 to early 2015. Apple fans may get their wrists on the new wearable as early as March: Recent reports tip “extensive testing programs” at Apple retail stores next month, ahead of a March rollout. Cupertino unveiled its long-awaited device is early September, showing off three variant with different bands: Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport, and Apple Watch Edition. Details of its software were also revealed by 9to5mac, showing how users will interact with the watch and the ways it will tell them off for not moving around enough and congratulate you when you do.

Available in a 38mm or 42mm watch face, the wearable requires an iPhone connection (everything from the 5 to 6 Plus), and provides easy access to Siri, apps, photos, directions, and communication services. However, if the Watch has to be charged at night, vital health signs could be missed by the gadget which Apple says will ‘motivate people to be more active and more healthy.’ The Watch is crafted from custom alloys of polished or space black stainless steel (Apple Watch), space gray or silver anodized aluminum (Apple Watch Sport) and 18-karat rose or yellow gold (Apple Watch Edition).
