For Apple Watch owners, charging the watch every day is a matter of course. While Apple is aiming for 18 hours of battery life on a single charge, the watch will likely spend part of the day on a charging stand. But if you don’t have time to look after your Apple Watch during the day, can you charge it overnight? It is safe? Below, we answer all of these questions regarding overnight Apple Watch charging.
Can I charge my Apple Watch all night?
The short answer is yes. Apple itself admits that you can charge your Apple Watch all night long. The watch charges quickly from 0 to 80%, but slowly charges from 80 to 100%. Still in doubt? The company has included a night stand mode that turns a charging Apple Watch into a bedside alarm clock, but only when plugged into a charger.
We should mention that while you can charge your Apple Watch all night, there are a few reasons why you might not want to. If you’re using your Apple Watch to monitor your sleep, you’ll need to have the watch on your wrist, not on a charging stand at night. In this case, it’s best to charge the watch while you take a shower, watch a series, or perform other daily tasks. Luckily, Apple has improved the charging speed of the Series 7 model , reducing its charging time from 0-80% to 45 minutes. This improvement makes overnight charging more of an option than a necessity.
Regardless of how you use your Apple Watch, battery life will decrease slightly after each charge cycle. Apple defines this charge cycle as every 100% of the battery capacity being depleted. There is no indication from Apple that overnight charging affects battery performance.
