As apposed to previous claims, 9to5Mac reports that the Apple Watch will be able to have 5 hours of heavy usage. The better battery life will help with customers who want to use their watches more heavily. However, the report makes it clear that the wearable device will still need to be charged every night. As a full days of usage should bring you down to about 20-30% every night.
On the topic of battery, the report further indicates the possibility of a Power Reserve mode. The feature dims the display, nearly disconnects from the iPhone, and can apparently be enabled on a full charge under the watches battery settings.
The report also gives us some smaller tidbits of information. The watch is able to be turned off by holding down the Contact button, and voice commands is labeled “Voice Control”, and not Siri. We expect Apple to unveil more information about the watch at its special event on Monday.
