Apple Watch Battery Life
All day battery life. Apple Watch will go on for 18 hours after one charge. So, all the skepticism about whether Apple Watch’s battery will last a day or not should rest now.
Many Apple Fans had been eagerly wanting the Watch to go on for long hours. Apple Watch seems to stand up to their expectation at least as far as battery life is concerned.
8GB of Internal Storage
All the three Apple Watch variants—Apple Watch Sport, Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition will have 8GB of internal storage. Whereas 2GB of storage has been provided for music, only 75MB of storage has been allotted for photos.
The remaining 6GB of storage has been divided into two parts. While part of the remaining storage has been taken by OS of the Apple Watch, the other half has been kept aside to let users install their favorite apps.
It is believed that Apple has reserved some storage on Apple Watch in order to use it for future use. When the much-awaited WatchKit SDK is released this year, this reserved storage can be utilized by the Cupertino based company.
