    I thought that the Series 2 has something like a 30% larger battery then the original Apple Watch, but with the dual-core processor, GPS, and brighter screen the overall battery life is the same. I think Jeff was right to call it a draw, since the Series 2 is not thinner and even though it was a larger battery (hence the slight size increase), it kept the same overall battery life.

    In my personal experience I have not had any battery problems with my Apple Watch, and I have used it every day all day since June 2015. My Apple Watch has always had at least 20% battery remaining when I take it off at night for charging.

    I would also say that I use my Apple Watch longer during interactions with it because I am waiting for it to do something or load something. If the new OS, along with the new dual-core processor, makes everything load and run really fast, then that means I would actually have shorter sessions with the watch and possibly use less battery power.

    For example, if my original Apple Watch takes 5 seconds to load the weather, and the new Series 2 takes 2 seconds, then I saved 3 seconds; which would add up throughout the day and result in using less of the battery.
