    Nice. 2.5 hours. 4 including fitness. 2 or 3 days if you don't use it. I wonder if that will be the norm for years as they make it faster, put in more features and reduce the impact any better battery would make.

    Can't see me getting one anyway. I don't want to wave an Apple product around on my wrist that advertises the phone in my pocket. Attention all muggers!!! Apple here!!!

    Typical Apple users like to look at/use their gadgets more than the average user of other devices (sit in a bus and you will see). I think, 2-3 hours would be the useful life of any charge. Maybe a belt-clipped-power-supply with thunderbolt, and of course, in an all metal design.
