Apple could have really done something amazing with the charging by doing a pin style charging like what is on the MacBooks and just making sure it is water-resistant. Due to the nature of induction charging, a lot of energy is lost. That is why it takes 1.5 hours just to charge the small 205mah battery that is in the Apple Watch. Additionally, induction charging makes it impossible to charge the watch while wearing it, plus the concern about being exposed to the energy waves used by the induction if you were wearing while charging but you can read about that by googling it. If Apple would have used a pin style system, we could have seen Solar watch straps that charge the Apple Watch while wearing it outside. We could have seen battery watch straps containing upwards of 500mah worth of battery allowing for wearing the watch for several days in a row without needing a charge. But alas, we have a smart watch that you can't even wear for an entire day so that you can track your exercise during the day and your sleep at night. Then you could be able to download apps that wake you at the optimum time in the morning allowing you to be most refreshed and ready for your day. This watch is so smart, and yet so not.
