    you can't make an assumption like that based on nothing but the battery. The different chipset will mean different current drains etc.

    I'm pretty sure the current iphone battery has a significantly better capacity than my old nokia, but the nokia lasted a week without charge..my iphone...1 day!!

    Would've been interesting to see a dive into the modem. How a Qualcomm and intel would have differed. If it's anything like my 7, the Qualcomm would've performed better than intel.

    I’m seeing better than 4% battery life thus far if I don’t use the LTE much. So I think the new processor is more efficient.

    I am seeing easily double the battery life from the original watch, but to be fair, I have not got cellular up and running yet

    Don't think a comparison can be drawn in that way like that. However, I am interested to see some filed test on this...
