Just imagine they could work out a way to make this watch solar powered. No more charging by cable!
Or they could just put some effort into the further development of biobatteries,
Batteries running on sugar enzymes with 10x the capacity of current lithium batteries. And are recharged with a sugar solution
Or a dynamo od some kind. A hybrid between an automatic and the Apple Watch! Best of both worlds! They'd have to work on energy efficiency, of course, but that should be one of the overall aims, anyway.
This is a cool idea.
I also like how the Apple watch kept a signature feature of a mechanical watch by using the crown as a touch interface - the speculations about how it would look didn't seem to recognize that need to free up the face real estate but it seems obvious in retrospect.
Shedding a bit more light on the matter, John Paczkowski relays that current battery life on the Apple Watch likely hovers at about 24 hours, a figure Apple is hoping to increase by the time the product launches in 2015.
"Sources tell me that Apple isn't yet happy with the watch's battery life, which isn't going to break any industry standards. "It's about a day right now," said one, adding that Apple is working on various modifications ahead of the device's 2015 launch to improve it."And keeping expectations low, Apple spokeswoman Nat Kerris issued the following statement:
"We anticipate that people will charge nightly, which is why we designed an innovative charging solution that combines our MagSafe technology and inductive charging."
You might have to move closer to the equator depending on how many apps you run daily
I do think we will see other (More Mobile) charging solutions, but think your watch will still have to come off. Not an issue from what I have seen for bands. And I'm sure it will charge quick, maybe 30 minutes from 0 to full charge.
Someone should come up with an inductive charging mousepad. That way you could charge your watch while using your computer. Of course, Apple will undoubtedly have a proprietary, non-changeable battery, so it wouldn't work with their watch unless they build it in to begin with. Maybe that could be their "hook" that makes their watch stand out from everyone else's.
Problem with quick wireless charging is it kills the battery long term due to the heat it creates...
Now if they had gone with some of the better types of wireless charging. You could keep it on your wrist and have a charging dock on your desk and have it topped off...
Or they could be working on the hover board from Back to the Future, teleportation from Star Trek, flying cars, phasers, robots that do everything for us (oh wait, people are working on that), time travel, warp drive, etc......
I vote for wireless charging Sharks with Lasers!
Apple will most likely own this space, only because they actually care about making the best product that just works. That pebble watch I played with, well I had to reset it to get it to pair properly with phone, then reset it again when notifications didn't work, then power cycle it a number of times until it finally worked great.
Keep in mind pebble also cost 1/2 as much as the starter model...
I know the one I had was $299, and ugly. Battery last a long time, but you expect that when the screen looks like e-ink garbage for the 1989.
It's a bit bulky but I'm getting used to it

That abomination looks terrible, and I can't imagine anyone wearing it outside a dark basement.
I still don't see the point in "smart"watchs, but at least the motorola 360 looks like something reasonable.
Apple has certainly done "it" again. :-/
your control knob is in the wrong place ! - your fingers are going to block the dial.
i can see why they moved it to the side
At least it will tell accurate time
It have the correct time twice a day! !!!
Pretty much 'eh, whatever' for me. I prefer my beat up Seiko that I have been wearing daily for like 5 years.
Most of apple's 'innovations' are impressive to their fanboys who will buy the latest just to be 'cool'. My iPhone went to the kids to play games on.
