    UPS just delivered my NEW iWatch and it appears it is not charged. I bought it from an Authorized Apple dealer over the Internet. In trying to pair it to my phone, I tried turning it on by holding down the button like it said to do but never could get it to react/turn on. I connected it to outlet and plugged in charger and a squiggly line came up with a green thing at top but then it went to black screen. Is that a good sign? I have been reading some of posts on here and it appears it should have some % of charge out of the box. I am worried I have an issue already! Please help me!

    Give it an hour or so on the charger undisturbed - then try setting up and pairing... nothing to worry about.

    My wife's watch was the same. Takes a long time to charge from totally uncharged but it will be fine.

    I would assume so as there is no such thing as an iWatch.

    Sounds like the AW was waiting a long time for it's new owner.

    It was looking all sad and depressed sitting on the box dangling its feet waiting?
