    Blocks the skin sensor? Meh. Maybe good for intercontinental flights and that's about it.

    YMMV if you want to use one. Not for me.

    AW Battery strap

    Is it actually shipping yet, or is this just a hype page?

    It also might infringe upon an Apple patent for a battery-equipped strap (not that Apple ever plans on manufacturing them, but they sometimes preemptively reserve ideas for themselves).

    I don’t think I would trust that. Charging creates a lot of heat, I’ve read about these chargers having an element of danger not knowing how sweat and outside elements could effect it.

    I would trust an Apple battery strap a little more than a third party one.
