The new smartwatch from Apple is planned to be a blast. Not only for its special features that are designed and gathered to fulfill all needs, but also for the battery, that is supposingly going to last 19 hours. This flattering news raised the interest of customers for Apple and came one step forward. The problem, however, show themselves when the processor, a high-speed one, meets halfway the touchscreen of profound sensitivity. How would this combination react to a single, small battery that has to do it all? Well, it wouldn’t.
Initially, the schedule of the watch would have been from 2.5 to 5 hours of functioning, when used actively. This fact would have happened if, after the first day with 5 hours of activity, the user would have let the watch in standby mode for three days and right afterwards, four days in sleep mode. The fact is that this statement sounds impossible, if the users were to do all these steps, but also the reality is that the battery doesn’t last more than two days, wither on standby or low-power mode. So the 5 hours of active usage daily promised by Apple smartwatch is a complicated resolution. These were observations that have been made by the company to contour a story in 9to5Mac.
Apparently, people who were interviewed about their intentions in using the smartphone, are ready to use it all day long, with all its apps and features, and evidently, charge it only once a day, every day. Moreover, if they watch if being used rarely, maybe not every day and not so many hours, the device wouldn’t have so many downsides. As a consequence, the creators of the watch intend to create a way of using it without draining so much power on the apps. For example, if you are not using or tapping the screen for three hours, it shuts down in order to preserve the battery; the fitness tracker must be used only during a workout or occasionally, if the user wants to check his health stats, otherwise, the application should be closed; the alerts send from the iPhone will ring only when the watch is turned on. If the customers don’t own an iPhone, they can’t use this smart device, because it only works through its direct connection with the iPhone.
The struggle for a better performance has also been the reason why Apple didn’t launch the watch at the end of 2014 and has postponed it to early 2015.
