How long is battery life on the Apple Watch?

UPDATE: Apple CEO Tim Cook said the Apple Watch will have up to 18 hours of battery life in a "typical day".

Apple has not yet provided specifics on the battery capacity or expected battery life on the Apple Watch. The charger was highlighted, featuring MagSafe technology with inductive charging. This makes the Apple Watch easy to connect for charging, even in the dark, or while "only partially awake".

Can I use the Apple Watch without an iPhone?

The Apple Watch requires the iPhone 5 or later.

Many functions of the Apple Watch depend on a Bluetooth connection to the iPhone. For example, the Apple Watch does not have its own GPS or hardware for wireless calling.

Apple Watch does include its own accelerometer and other sensors, so some features may still be available when the paired iPhone is out of range.
