The company's smartwatch Apple has a built-in lithium-ion battery that requires periodic charging. For these purposes, a special device in the form of a round magnet is intended, which is applied to the watch from the inside. To replenish the energy of the gadget, they use wireless technology, therefore, charging Apple Watch with charging from iPad will not work.
The Apple iWatch has an interesting feature: the charging speed depends on the battery level. If it is completely discharged, then the process will go at a good speed – about 1% per minute. But when the charge reaches 80%, the speed drops dramatically, and the remaining 20% will take over 40 minutes. The manufacturing company recognizes the existence of this feature and even indicates it on the official server as a charging characteristic for Apple Watch.
