Small size smartwatches make the batteries installed in them are not too big, which affects the time of their operation. LG Chem has developed a new type of battery that, thanks to its shape, offers up to 25 percent more capacity than standard batteries.
The new battery is specially designed for smartwatches, so its shape is hexagonal, so it can better fit it into the watch case and take advantage of any free space.
Currently manufactured batteries are rectangular or square, while smartwatches such as the Moto 360, LG G Watch R and Watch Urbane have round envelopes, leaving a lot of unused space around the battery. The LG battery uses it fully, of course for the benefit of the watch, as its capacity is up to 1/4 of that. Engineers say this should lengthen its working time by an additional four hours.
