Is there any way to tell how much a battery has been used?

I'm planning to buy a bike soon. How can I tell if an in-stock floor model has barely been ridden versus used as a demo with 100 battery cycles on it already? Other than obvious wear and tear, is there a diagnostic that can be run on the battery or something like that? For example, I've used this for a mac and it's quite useful:

This is (hopefully!) for a Specialized Turbo X (leading contender at this point) if that matters.


If it is a Specialized bike it has an odometer and a diagnostic tool(dealer only) that can tell you exactly how many cycles have been run. As for the other bikes, I'm not so sure.
