There’s been a lot of concern about just how long the Apple Watch battery will last. During its press event on Monday, Apple confirmed that users should expect 18 hours of battery life each day, which is pretty solid. “It works for most people, I think,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said. That should be fine for getting up, going to work and coming home, but you’re obviously going to want to bring a charger along if you’re going on a trip, potentially sitting on an airplane and more.
Apple also said that the Apple Watch will have thousands of applications available at launch. Battery life might ultimately be affected by what apps you’re using, and where and when, but 18 hours sounds alright to us. It’s not as good as we’ve seen from some Android Wear devices, however, and far from the 7 days that Pebble is promising for the new Pebble Time.
