Im not even asking for a 2-week battery life. id be happy with 7days. Heck id be happy with 3 to 5 days. But to defend an 18-hour battery life is arguably laughable.

Have you heard about Huawei watches? Fitbit? Garmin?

Faces on Apple Watch are basically identical between active and AOD mode, only large chunks of white are converted in black and everything else remains exactly the same. That in itself is worth just a single day battery charge.

The watch usually last a day when a lot of other smartwatches can last 1 to 2 weeks. Dont you think its about time they add a better battery life after all these years?

And at what point has Apple said otherwise? I don't remember them saying "all new, all redesigned watch". It's just bigger more efficient display and faster charging.

What shocking news.. Is anyone here idiot enough to think anything is new for real in all the "new" old devices with new shape?? He has to have just as much as every brick

Why can't they shrink the taptic engine and put a bigger battery? Seems like it's oversized.

Jon prosser's leaks were right. The actual design change of squarish one got messed up at last minute production. And they threw this bits and pieces of same last watch this year with a new model no. Within the last days. In one of his videos he pointed out the presentation workflow being cut and reshot to make it look like part of presentation.

This is why it''s priced the same as watch 6.

The tapric engine name is in the center now so

Why i think this formar Apple "guy" will be sued by Apple after this?! Even tho he didnt say anything people dodnt know already.

why it must changed, its already functioning. The space inside the watch is small,
i mean you expect a camera inside a watch for a big change
