Battery Wear Level Indicator Accuracy
#1
I want to know that how much accurate is the battery wear level indicator for laptops. Mine in showing 57% wear level. Is it bad?

That indicator is as accurate as the laptop's firmware accurate is.
57% is a quite bad wear level - means the battery capacity is only almost half of the original capacity.

Hi! Sorry, I don't get it. My ware level is 85%. Does it mean that my battery is 85% dead? :)

No. 100% is full level, so your battery has lost 15% of capacity.

Strange. The report shows
Designed Capacity: 56160 mWh
Full Charged Capacity: 8218 mWh // almost 7 times lower
Current Capacity: 8661 mWh (100.0 %)

But I have some power driver problems, so perhaps it explains the discrepancy in numbers.

Oh sorry, I mixed that (facepalm) !!
You were right as you originally said: 0% is full capacity (no wear), 100% is dead. So your battery is capable to reach only ~15% of the original capacity.
