    Does anyone know how many hours you get in Power Reserve Mode?

    I've seen stated that when the watch battery runs low it automatically switches into this mode giving you an extra 72 hours of battery life.

    Is this in addition to the 18 hours quoted for normal use, or would the watch always have to be in power reserve to get 72 hours?

    Thanks!

    I believe it will put it into Power Reserve when it's at about 5%. However, I'm fairly certain there's a settings icon where you can put it into power reserve mode and that will deliver 72 hours.

    I believe it's 72 hours in power reserve mode from 100%.

    Either way, people are going to burn these little batteries to 100% cycles and they will be worthless before the warranty is up. BUY AN EXTENDED ONE.

    The battery is replaceable like any other watch. Apple has already stated this.
