Question: Apple Watch Battery Life.

Can't find this anywhere else, and I don't know so someone must?


Does Apple Watch battery life deteriorate after some time? I've noticed this in my old Series 2, hoping this isn't the case with Series 3.

Apple Watch Series 3, watchOS 4.2

Yes, battery life on all models of Apple Watch will deteriorate over time.


The battery in Apple Watch is designed to retain up to 80% of its original capacity after 1,000 complete charge cycles. Apple's Limited Warranty includes coverage for defective batteries. Out-of-warranty battery service is also available:

All rechargeable batteries deplete over time it’s just the way it is we don’t have the technology yet to produce batteries yet that can be recharged infinite times.......then again conspiracy theory people believe they do have that technology to produce much better batteries but choose not to because from a business point of view producing everlasting batteries would be bad for business if people could buy one battery that would last forever likewise it’s the same for a product that comes with an everlasting battery they make far to much money replacing batteries when yours isn’t holding its charge and you need it replacing
