That is my conclusion after online analysis. First and foremost the Apple watch never was a watch, but an iphone accessory.
Watch: A device that keeps time for months. A device that can be placed in a drawer of socks for months and still function without me.
I own a five dollar watch that has been working for three years in the bottom of a box. A casio. Compared to the Apple watch it is a miracle device.
Battery meter: A battery meter for the Apple watch battery. I own a battery meter that can test different batteries. Therefore why buy the Apple watch? We already know the battery only lasts up to 18 hours.
Anything that must be recharged at the end of the day cannot be a watch. My ipad holds a charge for 3 days and I check the time with it at night when I go to take a piss. But I still do not classify my ipad as a watch.
So if you want an iphone accessory. The Apple watch works well. It can tell time, but not keep time. It is an attractive wrist band.
Therefore in years to come, there will be many Apple watches available in garage sale shoe boxes. With dead batteries. Forget about finding the recharging cord.
What is the solution? Well I’m thinking solar power is the solution for future generation smart watches. Such as this Nevo powered solar watch. Solar powered watches can be charged with natural sunlight and artificial light.
