    What do you expect out of the Apple Watch battery life? I would like to see at least 2-3 days.

    I think we'll see about a day or two for battery life.

    I think you'll get a day, at least. Unless you sit and play games on it. In which case you'll run out of time. (pun)

    I'd love to see it last for 2-3 days...but the reality of it may only be a day or day and a half. I wear a Fitbit Flex that requires recharging every 4-5 days. It has nothing in terms of a display, but seems to require a constant and regular charge. I only hope that the hold charge improves as Apple continues to develop their watch product.

    I got the sense that we'll have to charge it every day, but Apple will be kings (well, more of kings than they already are) if the Watch battery lasted longer than that. 1) So that I could mess with it (play games, open apps, etc) and not have to worry about it dying on me in middle of the day; and 2) so that if I forgot to charge it one night, I'd still be able to use it the next day. Especially considering that the Watch charger will not be as common as an iPhone/iPad charger, I probably wont be able to just borrow a friends'.

    I'm curious about how long it will take to charge. If it is only an hour or less, you could charge it while getting ready in the morning.

    I'd love to see the Apple watch charge from a light source indoors/outdoors...similarly to my Citizen Eco-drive. Wouldn't that be a treat to have that?

    That would be nice, but it isn't going to happen with today's solar cell technology. Not unless you want to cover most of your forearm with a solar panel. :)

    Solar charging might be an option with hikers and backpackers, who could hang the solar cell from their back pack to charge the watch as they hike.

    Those products already exist for iPhone and other devices that can use a USB cable. I haven't seen the cable of the Watch charger, so no idea if they can be used with it.
