In fact, many of Apple's decisions were made so that the watch could last a full day.So it's not surprising that one of the big changes to this year's Apple Watch could be a much bigger battery.A photo purportedly of the battery component used in the 42mm version of the second-generation Watch leaked onto Chinese social media this weekend.
The biggest change is that the leaked photos indicate the Apple Watch 2 could have a 35% larger battery, at least in the larger version, according to MacRumors.
