    Ok so I'm finally doing a little bit of research on the watch to buy.

    Just curious but does it use the plan from your iPhone to get online, send messages etc?

    Yes. It uses your phone to do all of that.

    I know where I charge them.
    My point was, now we are plugging in two devices every night.
    By which I mean, I normally charge (plug in) my phone every two days. As the soon to arrive watch will drain the phone quicker, I will need to "plug in" two devices every night.

    My iPhone 6 lasts the entire day without a charge and I use it a lot. I recommed choosing an iPhone based on what screen size they want, not the battery.

    I had both before I retuned iPhone 6 now I am with iPhone 6 plus and I definitely love it...if you want long battery life and Beautiful screen go with 6 plus...at the end you guys will do what your budget will allow...battery is much better on 6 plus main reason why I got 6 plus

    It wasn't about cost for me. I could afford the 6 Plus, but I wanted the smaller screen for pocketabilty and one-handed usage. I charge my phone every night, so it doesn't make any difference to me. They both can get through the day just fine. Yes, the battery on the 6 Plus lasts longer and could go two days without a charge in many instances, but that's not my priority.

    That's fine that you chose your phone based on the battery life and I'm glad it lasts you all day. I'm just saying battery life isn't the only thing for other people to consider when choosing an iPhone. Some of us would rather have a smaller phone and can still get a full day out of the 6. You said our iPhone 6 batteries would not last a full day and that is not true in many cases.

    I say choose your phone to be as large and noticeable as possible so that others will worship the phone you have.

    That doesn't work for me. People can't get past worshiping me. They never notice the phone.
