And how else will you charge your watch?

True but more so talking about the wireless charging stations you can buy. Technically with the default Apple charging cord it is wireless.

Yes, with the default Apple charging cord it IS wireless. So, what is your point? I also am confused.

Seriously you’re going to have to start adding more details to your posts, you’re making it hard work for anyone who wants to help. They are just such random posts. Just my opinion.

Wireless charging is far from new. My sonic care toothbrush has had wireless charging for ages.

Apple Watch by design (since there isn't a charging port) is wireless charging. It just happens to magnetically attach to the watch, but there is no physical connection.

Now if there is some knockoff charger that you are using, there might be a potential for it to malfunction...

Induction is used everyday for power transmission....its proven tech! Just ask Faraday

In terms of smart phone wireless charging, the only concern with wireless charging for smart phones for example, is sometimes it can produce ‘excessive’ external heat (Especially with some garbage no-name third party Chargers) to the battery controller, which heat combined with lithium ion battery deployment, can degrade the battery over the lifespan.
