Rumors: Apple failed to improve battery ‘smart’ hours Apple Watch




During the official presentation of “smart” watches Apple Watch in September last year, Apple has paid a lot of time to transfer their features and functions, but missed one important detail – do not specify the length of battery life on a single charge. In October, the Conference WSJD Live Tim Cook confirmed that the gadget users have to charge the device battery every day. Today, sources close to Apple, to name the exact battery life Smart hours in different modes.


Apparently, confirmed rumors that this position at Apple Watch all is not perfect. In 2014, as reported, the company has set a target to achieve 2.5 to 4 hours of active use applications, up to 19 hours of combined use of up to 3 days standby time or up to 4 days in sleep mode. To date, Apple has managed to achieve no more than 2-3 days of standby time.

Apple Watch work on “stripped-down” version of iOS, codenamed SkiHill and are based on the chip Apple S1. Processor performance corresponds Apple A5 chip in the iPod touch. Retina display is capable of displaying the image at 60 frames per second. “Stuffing” at Apple Watch sufficiently productive, so during their continuous operation depends largely on the type of application.

Sources confirmed that Apple does not really thrilled with the battery life battery at Apple Watch. It is for this reason that the release of hours transferred at the beginning of 2015. The company conducted a large-scale testing of a standalone device – more than 3,000 tests in various modes, including the use of Apple’s own applications and third party software. If the active task loads the processor, for example in the case graphically intensive games Apple Watch time not exceeding 2.5 hours. With “normal” applications will run 3.5 hours. Fitness applications that rely on the built-in sensors hours, can be used for 4 hours. In mixed mode, the battery Apple Watch enough for the whole day.


Should recognize that the information obtained from the situation with a view to increase battery life, is not clear. The majority of “smart” watches from the other manufacturers entered the market or preparing for release, the battery life battery is less than a day. Thus Apple, at least in the first clock generation, failed to significantly improve on this figure in order to make wearing the device more attractive than competitive offerings.
