There have been rumours that Apple Watch had poor battery life but this will not be true soon, thanks to innovation push from accessory makers.
One of the accessory companies, Reserve Strap, has announced plans to make a battery strap for Apple Watch. What this means to Apple Watch users is that they are able to charge their Apple Watch while on the go, meaning you have a strap on battery pack on your wrist. Best of all, this plan seems to be taking shape and it comes with faster charging advantage.
As many of us knew, Apple Watch utilizes wireless charging, which Reserve Strap could also do the same to provide Apple Watch charging option. However, Reserve Strap mentioned;
“Our engineers have been able to independently confirm that the 6 pin diagnostic port underneath the Apple Watch case can be used for charging. The Reserve Strap will take advantage of this using a simple, retractable connector instead of the previous inductive charging cradle design. By utilizing this port instead of wirelessly charging, we’ve been able to achieve a higher charge capacity and quicker, more efficient charging times while also improving durability and eliminating any interference with Apple Watch functionality including taptic feedback and heartrate sensors.”
As Reserve Strap is on its preliminary development stage to decipher the port interface, they are confident of providing seamless interface and at the same time promised sharing more design details and technical specification of the all-new Reserve Strap as soon as possible.
