    Hello,

    I bought an Apple Watch, but the adapter that included the package not work with our local outlet power.

    Can I use/insort my iPhone6 adapter with Apple Watch cable for charging?

    Thanks for your answers, regards.

    I like in the UK and although the plug supplied with the Apple Watch has a really cool design I tend to still use my existing iPhone charger. Keeping the other one fresh and new for when the iPhone one eventually stops working!

    This is the reason I still use my iPhone adapter as mentioned in post two. I really like the new design. I bought a US adapter when visiting the states last year, and although small, it still had pins that didn't retract, which I was surprised about since their pins are much smaller than ours.

    What do you mean by "really cool design"?

    Does your watch charger block look different that your iPhone charger block?;)

    The UK charger for the Watch has retractable pins - a travel godsend!

    This... I'm confused. Or might it vary by region/electrical socket outlets? Since people are siting the UK? The US charger block for the Watch is exactly the same as the iPhone.

    In the UK it's completely different and, as others have said, it's a really cool design with retracting pins:

    Cool! Thanks for the info, I know I could have looked it up myself had I not been lazy about it ;) And that is a decently cool design, at least relative to the iPhone adapter for the UK. :D
