If you want to know the nominal power and capacity of your Apple Watch battery in mAh and Wh, then you've come to the right place. Even if you want to determine your Apple Watch model to see which series you have, which accessories are compatible with it and whether an upgrade is worthwhile, we will help you here. First of all, of course, you have to know which model of the watch you have and then you can find the battery capacity from the table below. All models of the 1st generation, the Series 1 2015, are listed Series 2 2016, Series 3 2017, Series 4 2018, Series 5 2019, Series 6 and Apple WatchSE 2020 as well Series 7 2021
You can use the model number to find out which Apple Watch you are using. To find the Apple Watch model number, you have to use the Watch app on the iPhone with which the watch is paired. And this is how you do it:
Below you will find all previous Apple Watch models (as of October 2021) and their battery capacities in mAh and Wh. When considering power banks, accessories and battery load, remember that not only the information in mAh is important, but also other values of the battery (kWh), the watchOS system (consumption) and so on. Here in the blog you will find some articles on chargers, power banks and MacBook accessories that can be used to charge the watch.
Below you will find the model number, the nominal power in milliampere hours (mAh) and the battery power in watt hours (Wh) of the previous Apple Watch models. The model numbers, which you can find both on the housing of the devices and in the settings, help you to determine your model exactly. But here is the table with the battery capacities (mAh & Wh) of all Apple Watch Series'.

Note on the models from Apple Watch Series 3: since this model there has been a distinction between GPS and GPS cellular versions. The latter offer the use of the cellular network with the Apple Watch. You will see two model numbers on these editions of the watch. The first is for Europe and Asia, the second for North America.
If there is still no mAh or Wh value entered somewhere, then I have not found the information anywhere (secured). If you know a source for this, please leave a comment. Previous sources for the above table are iFixit, MacRumors, Wikipedia etc.
Thanks to regular updates, you will also find the Apple Watch Series 4 from 2018, the Apple Watch Series 5 from 2019, the Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE from 2020 and the Apple Watch Series 7 from 2021. We are making an effort to ensure that Keep the table up to date so that you can always find the latest values.
I hope this post could help you if you were looking for the Apple Watch battery capacity in mAh and Wh. There aren't too many reliable sources for these values; Apple itself always keeps a low profile when it comes to exact hardware values. The sources for this article were therefore alongside Apple.com (Model numbers) above all iFixit.com and Wikipedia.
