Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple has announced that the company is excited about the upcoming launch of the Apple Watch at the WSJ.D conference in Laguna Beach, California last week. The CEO further explained how impressed he was by Jony Ive and his team in understanding how to bring personalization to the Apple Watch yet keeping it stylish and sleek.
Along with this, Cook let us in on some details regarding Apple Watch’s battery. Cook said that users are going to be using the Apple Watch so much that everyone is going to have to charge the battery every day. Yes, every single day. Everyone has been questioning the battery life of the device and early reports even suggested that Apple was having trouble getting the device to last longer than a day. A statement like this from Mr CEO sounds more less like a confirmation to these reports.
Apple has reported to have designed an easy charging system on the Apple Watch to overshadow the flaw in the battery life. The Apple Watch connects to a magnetic charger that’s much like the MagSafe chargers supplied with the Mac, snapping easily to the back of the device. High-end versions of the Apple Watch even ship in a luxury box that doubles as a charging stand.
It looks like plans to make the battery last up to four days didn’t work out. However, there is still time before the 2015 launch of the Apple Watch. Maybe something can be done to at least give users two days worth of battery life!
