    I usually never let my Watch fall below 50% charge. Occasionally it happens, but I've been very successful overall. Sometimes I'll charge my Watch to 100% before bedtime, and power down until morning.

    'It's not necessary' is an overly broad generalization that needs or at least deserves qualification. While the information at Battery University is often contested by users in various forums, they fail to present peer documentation supporting their assertions. At this point I follow BU's recommendations and have been rewarded with very long Li-Ion battery life and low cycle count. Some of you may already be aware that a low cycle count can be very beneficial at the Apple Store if you're having battery problems out of warranty.

    Charging a battery is probably the hardest part of its normal duty cycle. Batteries are designed operate in various heat ranges and exceeding the upper parameters can shorten the life.

    So do/don't— whatever works for you.
