By default, the Apple Watch only shows how much juice it has left in its own battery, while it does not provide any information about the battery of the iPhone it is connected to. But now, a new Watch app discovered by RedmondPie seems to have addressed this little issue. Called the Battery Monitor, the app provides instant update about the remaining battery life of the connected iPhone, and best of all, it is available as a free download for a limited time.
“Save time & glance at your iPhone battery instantly when your phone is… charging in another room, hidden in your bag, on your arm at the gym or out running! This app is designed for the Apple Watch only and can check the battery status of your iPhone remotely”.
To make the most out of the app, simply install it on your Apple Watch and enable it in Glances. Now simply swipe up on your watch face to bring up the iPhone’s battery status. The following screenshots give you an idea of how it looks on the Apple Watch.
