Tech giant Apple has high ambitions for its upcoming smartwatch when it comes to its single batter back up. But if reports are to be believed, the reality may fall short of the goal.
According to a report by news site 9to5Mac, Apple has selected a fairly beefy processor and high-quality screen for its much awaited product, Apple Watch.
The experts suspect the positive impact of the combination as far as the functioning of the watch on a single charge is concerned.
The report was published by 9to5Mac on Thursday.
Apple had initially planned for the smartwatch to function for 2.5 to 5 hours based on active use. The company was also eyeing an aim of three days on standby mode, while four days when in sleep mode. Unfortunately, Apple’s ambitious wearable device is likely to last only two to three days in either standby or low-power mode, as per the report by 9to5Mac.
The battery life is the most critical aspect to smartwatches for both the developers and the users. The poor battery life disappoints the owners wanting to tap into its complete platter of apps and features without draining the battery too instantly.
Apple CEO Tim Cook had in October last year expressed that he is expecting the users of the smartwatch to charge it on a daily basis, saying this is required as the users will be using it so frequently.
Apple is best known for perfectionism. In such a scenario, battery life emerges as a big concern. According to the sources, this may be one of the reasons behind the pushing the date of launch back from late 2014 to early 2015.
