The Apple Watch won't charge

Views: 680 Replies: 14

I got myself an Apple Watch today and I am very happy but the problem I have is that when I try to charge it it does not work.

I place the charger, the Apple Watch says that the device in charging properly but in reality the power diminishes as if no charger was plugged in.

Does anyone has this problem or knows how to solve it ?

I'm having the same issue. It shows it's charging but the power level keeps going down. At this rate it'll be dead by morning, how disappointing for day one. Other than that I love the watch.

Reboot the watch. I had to reboot it twice and now it's charging.

I am having the same problem, I am currently on support chat to Apple to see if we can fix the problem.

So far we have done the following:

1. Turn off the watch (hold side button (while not on charge) and then swipe to power off like iPhone)

Then Reset the watch

1. Hold the Digital crown and the side button and the same time until you see the apple logo

Put on charger and see if it charges.

If this does not work do the following:

1. reboot iPhone

2. go to apple watch app

3. in the apple watch app got to> general> reset> erase all content and settings

4. wait for watch to erase and reboot to language screen

5. Set up the watch until you see the app bubbles

(a difference i noted at the point of first installation was, that the linking with my iPhone didn't work with the camera, i had to do it manually with bluetooth codes, not sure if this was the problem to begin with, however now with erasing and starting fresh, the linking has worked properly with the camera)

and my watch is now charging properly. You may not need to do all of these steps but its worth a try!

Mine was doing this. Does your feel really warm while it says it charging? Mine did.

I don't know what I did other than re-position the charger button a couple of times but it did start charging.

I had the same problem. The reset fixed it for me. Could my problem have had something to do with the fact that I didn't remove the plastic cover from the charging disc at first? Even after I removed the plastic, it still wouldn't charge. The reset fixed it.
