Apple’s smartwatch is finally showing its rear after months of playing in rumour land. According to a report by the New York Times, the Cupertino company is now planning to incorporate a “smart battery” to its iWatch in order to resolve some of the shortcomings of previous generation smartwatches.

The reports indicate that the battery will be able to charge itself through various means including the use of solar energy, inductive technology and motion-powered technology allowing users to wear the device for longer periods of time without having to worry about draining the power and charging.

Moreover, the inductive charging technology that will be used on the device is said to use electromagnetic fields that will let the device charge wirelessly as opposed to inductive charging tech we’ve seen in the past including that of the Nexus 5 and other Nokia Lumia smartphones.

The Apple iWatch is expected to launch within the year possibly in one of the company’s various events held in either Q2 or Q3 alongside new devices such as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S.
