    Hi All,

    I've had my  Watch Sport since launch and have noticed that it frequently (so far around half of the time) comes off the charger warm and only charged to 98/99%, this is after being on charge all night.

    Sometimes if I take it off charge then put it back on the charger and leave it for 10 minutes it will fully charge. I tried messing around with the charger making sure it's properly connected etc and it seems fine to me.

    I realise that wireless charging is not the most efficient way of charging, but has anyone else had this issue?

    I've read from other threads that the watch charges to 100 then let's it drop to about 97 or so and keeps repeating the dropping to 97 and charging back to 100 until you take it off the charger.

    Could be wrong but I've seen it mentioned a few times.

    A lot of devices lose their surface charge this way , and why some mfrs use bars to inform you of charge levels instead of digital readouts, , dont worry about it.
