My Apple Watch Series 2 offers decent battery life to the point that I can get 2.5 days of use from one charge which is better than I ever expected. The obvious advantage is that I don’t ever have to worry about getting through a day no matter what I am putting it through and it takes it one step closer to being a normal watch without any of the extra things you normally have to do to manage a smart watch.
However, 3 times over the past 2 weeks I have forgot to charge it on the second day and thus I struggle to get through the next day.
I live in a time where daily charging is seen as normal and because it is so frequent it is something I never forget on my iPhone, but it seems that lengthening that gap by only 1 day is enough for my mind to forget to the point that usage is hindered.
I have never run out of power on my iPhone despite the less than stellar battery performance and just maybe it is an advantage that a human needs to remember to do such things.
Until we reach a time where we never have to worry, I suspect that it will take us many months to get used to a new regime if Apple and the rest manager to seriously increase battery performance for the masses.
