Will the iWatch’s battery life be just as disappointing as the Moto 360’s?

iWatch Vs. Moto 360 Battery Life

If there’s an emerging consensus with the Moto 360 so far it’s that it’s a stylish device that has a key flaw: Poor battery life. While Apple fans are certainly hoping the iWatch will beat the Moto 360 in this category, The Information’s sources say that they shouldn’t get their hopes up.

According to The Information, the upcoming wearable computer’s battery life will likely be “disappointing” much in the same way that the Moto 360’s battery life has disappointed early reviewers. The publication also writes that “people who have talked to Apple about the watch said that Apple employees have set low expectations” for the device.

It’s certainly true that if people have to constantly charge their iWatch then it will be more of a nuisance than it might be worth. And Apple doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to battery life, either — over the last year, multiple battery test studies from PCMagWhich? and LaptopMag have all found that flagship phones from Samsung and HTC get significantly higher overall battery life than the iPhone. In fact, looking at the Which? study that specifically examined battery life for Internet use, we can see that the iPhone 5s was behind every other major smartphone released last year, including the Galaxy S4, the HTC One, the BlackBerry Z10 and the Nokia Lumia 1020.

So while we’re pretty sure that the iWatch will be a stylish gadget, what we’re really looking out for is whether it will have the everyday usefulness that will make us want to buy one.
