The Apple Watch has great battery life, so there’s no need for you to charge it every day. The smaller versions should last for 18 hours of all-day activity, three hours of continuous talk time, six-and-a-half hours of continuous audio, and up to 72 hours in Power Reserve mode (which only shows the time).
When it is time to finally give it some juice, it only takes about 1.5 hours to reach 80 per cent and up to 2.5 hours for a full 100 per cent charge. There’s also various ways of charging your Apple Watch, including the external battery charger, plugging the power adapter into a regular wall socket or inserting a MagSafe inductive charger to your MacBook. With so many options, you’ll also end up saving the battery life on your iPhone.
In addition, there’s an app such as OneDrive available that allows you to manage all of your content stored in the cloud or upload photos taken from your iPhone. You can edit Excel or Word documents while traveling, preparing for a business meeting or just being away from your computer.
