same design rather square, same screen size, same resolution?

an ideal of 19 hours of autonomy in mixed use?

From the first hours of the announcement of the watch Apple Watch, a question arose: will it do better than the disappointing autonomy of most connected watches on the market? Quite quickly, it appeared that it would not do much more than its competitors and the order of magnitude of a day of operation, requiring a daily recharge, emerged.

Apple Watch home The site 9to5Mac claims to have obtained new information. Keeping in mind that the Cupertino group opted for a rather solid hardware configuration with a Retina display and a chip Apple S1 whose performance would be close to the processor Apple A5, all driven by a special version of iOS called SkiHill, the Cupertino group had set itself the goal of full day autonomy.

The objectives set in 2014 were to 2.5h to 4h in intensive use of applications, up to 19 hours in standard use, up to 3 days in standby and approximately 4 days in intense standby (sleeping mode).

However, according to the sources of 9to5Mac, these waking and deep waking states will ultimately not exceed 2 to 3 days. which will have repercussions on intensive use since the apple company only has 2.5 hours of autonomy with the use of gourmet applications or 3.5 hours with standard applications, and up to at almost 4 hours for fitness and health monitoring applications.

Apple Watch digital crown The continuous display of the time on the watch, with dial and animations, will drain the battery in the space of three hours, The scenario wanted for the Apple Watch therefore consists of long periods of inactivity with the screen off interspersed with short peaks of intense activity, and it is within this framework that the manufacturer plans to reach 19 hours of autonomy in mixed use … which will no doubt be difficult to obtain on the first generation of watches.

The battery issue remains problematic and has led Apple to delay the launch of its gadget to early 2015 while a large panel of nearly 3,000 test watches attempts to assess and validate the model of theoretical use. The group would also work to improve the recharging time via the base and its MagSafe system, which is less efficient than expected.
