Does anyone notice that the Apple Watch Ultra 2 feels hot where the charging puck sits (where all the sensors are) after taking it off the charger?

For example, when I take it off the charger and go to put it on, I notice it feels warm.

I don’t remember my Series 8 doing this and I’m wondering if this is normal?

all batteries get warm when being charged, warmer at fast charging ...
are you fastcharging? what's your power adapter rating?

I’m using this as the charger and this as the power adapter.
so fast charging, you could try the charging puck that came with the watch and see if there's a difference.
I put my Ultra 2 on my old puck from the S0 every other night, don't use fast charging.

Again, fast charging will heat up the battery/watch but others should comment
