Tips to extend Apple Watch Battery Life

Throughout the years, one constant concern for all Apple Watch users has been its battery life. Especially for those, whose first job after waking up is to wear it on their wrist and the last job of the day is to remove it before falling asleep. As a gadget that covers all aspects of its users’ lives, from their workout routine to health monitoring to appointment reminders, the Apple Watch battery must last until its users’ day is over.
