    Apple Watch battery can die after 3 hours

    Careful with that Dick Tracy routine on your new Apple Watch — you won’t be able to keep it up all day.

    Apple has quietly admitted that using its new gadget as a phone — a nifty feature that CEO Tim Cook gushed about in a splashy presentation — drains the battery in as little as three hours.

    That’s far less than the watch’s 18-hour battery life touted by Cook as he showed off the device to reporters Monday.

    “I’ve been wanting to do this since I was 5 years old!” the 54-year-old exec told the crowd. “The day is finally here.”

    Gabbing on the phone isn’t the only thing that will send you back to the device’s magnetic clip-on charger well before 18 hours are up.

    I almost bought the 299 version a few months ago to go with my galaxy phone. Wanted to be able to track my runs with a glance down and change song with ease (it is usually attached to my upper arm). Also, specially at work I use my watch a ton.. would be nice not to have to pull a phone out all the time.
