    Like the title says, my 42 SS watch was sitting on the charger all night and when I got up this morning it was almost dead and very warm on the back. My wife's watch charged fine. Anyone else having this problem? Is it the charger or the watch?

    I had the same issue and posted about it here

    Do a hard reset by holding down both the digital crown and side button until the Apple logo appears. After that it should charge normally. It looks like it's a software glitch so no need to worry. Mine has been working fine ever since.

    I had the same problem until I realized that the cable wasn't plugged into the USB brick the whole way. :eek:

    Same issue here. A hard reset fixed the issue.

    I haven't reset it yet, but I put it on my wife's charger for about 20 minutes and it seems to be charging just fine with hers so I guess I have a faulty charger. At least it doesn't seem to be an issue with the watch.
