“The battery can last all day, for 18 hours,” said Apple Watch’s Vice President of Product Marketing Stan Ng, while introducing this product from the stage.

According to Ng, the Watch Series 5 battery can last a long time because the screen is always on using the type of Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide (LTPO) panel specifically developed by Apple.

“LTPO dynamically refreshes the screen, between 60 Hz to 1 Hz, to save power,” he explained.
