Video Reveals Demo Apple Watch Boot Time [WATCH]

It may sound (a bit) disappointing, but if you need to switch on your Apple Watch, you will need to wait 70 seconds to check the time in the morning, a video sent in to 9to5Mac demonstrates.

The video inserted below shows an Apple Watch unit boot time in an Apple Store: It’s a minute and ten seconds before you see the watch face. It’s not the best comparison, but the iPhone 6 boot time is less than half that. The Moto 360 boot time is 53 seconds.

Rumours suggested the S1 chip that powers the Apple Watch should match the performance of the A5 chip, but for some reason there is a discrepancy between that rumour and the reality shown off in this video.

Apple has set the Apple Watch launch date for April 24, but there is twist: Orders are online only through May, and the device has been in stores since April 10th, unlike other product launches, when the product actually got into stores on the official launch date and customers were able to make a walk-in purchase. But not this time.

    I noticed that in store. I thought the watch had a bug. Then again, unless you’re out of a cable to charge it up, you should not have to power off (or on) your watch.
