Have you ever wondered how long it takes to turn on an Apple Watch? Mobile devices are usually never turned off. From the moment we buy them, they always go with us, and between charges, they stay on for most of their life . A clear example is mobile phones and laptops.
And even more so with the horror of charging an iPhone after the battery has run out , which forces us to wait several distressing minutes until a small portion of it is charged. In fact, Apple improves year after year the boot times of its devices, as we have seen in several comparative videos.
Well, the Apple Watch was not going to be less, and so we can see it for the first time starting from a standstill. It’s not exactly quick to load the entire Watch OS, and from the moment we press the power button until the face comes out of the clock, just one minute passes. When the operating system is updated we can compare if Apple has made some kind of improvement in this aspect, but compared to an iPhone, the difference is quite important , since the latter takes only 30 seconds to display the lock screen.
Because the S1 processor of the Apple Watch is not excessively powerful. Some compare it to a power level of the old Apple A5 carried by the iPhone 4s, Apple TV third generation, or the iPad 2 . However, even the iPhone 4s didn’t take 60 seconds to boot up with a much more complex operating system like iOS. Surely no normal user would worry about the Apple Watch taking a minute to boot up, more so when we can probably count on the fingers of one hand the number of times it will have to wait sixty distressing seconds to use it.
