Apple Watch to have similar battery life as Android Wear devices

Apple’s much awaited wearable device the ‘Apple Watch’ will exhibit a similar battery life as other Android Wear devices in the market today, said a source familiar with the watch’s development. Apple is hopeful that the watch can run for 19 hours, combining active and passive use, reported the Verge.

According to 9to5Mac’s source, the Apple Watch can last two to three days in standby and low-power modes. However, if the watch is used strictly as a timepiece and the screen is on at all times, then the battery will die out after three hours or so.

9to5Mac also said that the CPU inside the watch is more or less equally as powerful as the A5 chip that powered the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, and remains in the current-generation iPod touch.
