It’s been more than 48 hours since the first users started receiving their Apple Watch, and like children with new shoes, they will have launched themselves into the world of testing. Of course, we started to get the first opinions about Apple’s Smartwatch on the net. What were you most worried about? The battery? Don’t worry, we already know how to handle it on a daily basis .
The opinion is widespread among its users, the Apple Watch fulfills what Apple promised and it is not a problem to reach the end of the day with a battery in the SmartWatch. And that’s because it’s more common for us to make more intensive use of the device in these first few days. What seems to have mixed opinions is the impact on the battery of our iPhone, which as you well know, the Apple Watch depends on it for many tasks.
Some users have reported online that they have noticed an improvement in the battery of their iPhone . The mere fact of not having to “take the iPhone out of your pocket” to see notifications being sent directly to the clock seems to be the main cause. Many of the interactions are performed directly from the clock, with the consequent saving of battery power by the iPhone.
But we also found the opposite case. Ryan Block, editor of Engadget, states on his Twitter account that he noticed a considerable decrease in battery life and that the culprit could be the Apple Watch application , which consumes 31% of the iPhone’s resources . Opinions are mixed and perhaps the problem could lie in some software “bug” that produced this abnormal decrease.
All we can do now is wait for our colleague Eduardo, who already has a unit, to make an extensive analysis of the device to get rid of any doubts.
