Apple Watch: This is how you can check watch’s battery life

The Apple Watch has numerous advantages, but one of them is its battery life. While Apple watches are rated for up to 18 hours of battery life (depending on usage), this isn’t comparable to competitors’ days-long battery life.

While there are numerous reasons to purchase an Apple Watch, battery life remains an issue. Because the Apple Watch does not typically provide as much time away from a charger as other smartwatches, knowing how much energy is left will assist guarantee that the wearable does not run out of juice before being recharged.
