    Apple Watch Battery Will Be Replaceable: Report

    An Apple spokesperson disclosed to TechCrunch that Apple Watch's battery will be replaceable. Now, the big question is that whether Apple will charge some sort of fee to replace the battery, although the company has yet to say how much this will cost.

    "Well, when it comes to the battery at least, owners of Apple Watch will be able to extend its lifespan. An Apple spokesman confirmed to TechCrunch the "battery is replaceable". Albeit, it's not clear how much it will cost to send in your wearable to Apple to get it returned with a new cell in place.

    The other potential obsolescence issue relates to the processor. It's not clear whether Apple will offer any kind of CPU and/or RAM upgrade to existing owners. At the time of writing Apple had not responded to our request for clarification".
    Apple Watch Battery Lasts a Full Day

    One of the crucial questions, however, was battery life. Apple said the watch will have "all day" battery life. The company says it takes 1.5 hours to charge the Watch to 80 % and 2.5 hours for a full charge.

    'We think Apple Watch will become integral to your day - so we have given it all day battery life.

    'During a typical day, you can use it for 18 hours - more than enough for anyone I think.'

    The Apple Watch, which is designed to work with an iPhone, has an ability to make calls and offer a variety of health tracking features.

    Apple is rumored to launch its watch in India by June 2015. The device will go on sale in 9 countries, starting April 24.
