Mercedes-Benz creates an intelligent integration between #AppleWatch and #MercedesBenz vehicles with its new MB #CompanionApp . The MB Companion App allows Mercedes-Benz customers to search for directions on the Apple Watch or on iPhone initiating a complete door-to-door experience. A seamless integration unfolds: giving walking directions to the car on the Apple Watch, driving directions on the vehicle navigation system and again walking directions on the Apple Watch from the car to the final destination.

Android has been using QI for years, but a brand as popular as Apple applies the method, it'll really open the world up to wireless charging to be widely accepted in all locations.
As far as battery life goes. Color me impressed by my first day of usage. So here is the conditions the watch has been under today. I woke up at 6 a.m. Watch has been paired with the phone over 4G and LTE for 5 hours today. 6 Hours of the day the watch was not on the same wifi and out of range of the phone Bluetooth. The phone was in a lock box most of the day with no signal and not in airplane mode. I also did a 31 minute run using the fitness app independent of the phone to test the app and watch sync. Keep in mind today was a heavy use day for me because I would check my heart rate, use various apps and constantly make adjustments to the various watch faces throughout the day.
Biggest battery draw is using the fitness app and allowing constant heart rate monitoring. All that said the battery life seems to be all-day for me. On a side note the iPhone 6 is currently at 24%. The phone battery took a big hit today because of the no signal situation (That was intentional). But very good so far. Tomorrow the device will be paired together all day and we will see how that goes.
