Is Apple Watch Draining Your iPhone's Battery Too Fast?

The Apple Watch has been on sale for already six months, which means lots of people already got to the core of real features and function of Apple Watch. The biggest question that surrounds the Apple Watch is the battery life.

​Apple says that the Apple Watch will offer an “all day battery life” of normal use, which is described as: “Testing conducted by Apple in March 2015 using preproduction Apple Watch and software paired with an iPhone using preproduction software. All-day battery life is based on 18 hours with the following use: 90 time checks, 90 notifications, 45 minutes of app use, and a 30-minute workout with music playback from Apple Watch via Bluetooth, over the course of 18 hours.”

But after six months, we have heard rumors that it will require daily charging and this poor experience has been shared by many new Apple Watch owners. We have yet to hear any solid information about the Watch battery and iPhone battery.

Besides, there are lots of new Apple Watch owners who complain about the impact the Apple Watch on iPhone battery life. The Apple Watch needs to be paired to an iPhone for full functionality. The iPhone connects to the Apple Watch via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to feed it data and notifications throughout the day.

One product tester has tested the battery usage of iPhone for8 hours, when it was paired with Apple Watch. And the result shows that the Apple Watch cost 30% battery of iPhone. “I’m sure you’ll agree that such a huge battery drain seems abnormal for a paired device that just sends quick bursts of data.” said the tester.

But why Apple Watch is draining your iPhone’s battery so fast? Apple Watch apps execute on the iPhone as WatchKit extensions, streaming the user interface assets and a storyboard back to the Watch. What’s more, the Apple Watch uses the GPS and Wi-Fi in your iPhone, putting an additional strain on the smartphone’s battery life.

Some users have found a notable improvement in iPhone battery life with the addition of an Apple Watch.

1.      Instead of Bluetooth, let your Apple Watch and your iPhone connected with same WiFi.

2.      Check notifications on Apple Watch so as to reduce the frequency of iPhone usage.
