    I put mine on the charger about 2 hours ago and it's not 100% yet.. is that normal for it take that long? I've just had it for 2 days so I'm not used to its charging patterns yet.

    im not sure, i charge it when I'm at work or when I'm at home chilling, I'm sure the experience is different when you're waiting for the watch to reach 100% because you're going out.

    but for me its been fairly fast.

    well today I'm not going out at all and it seems to be taking forever. I put it in airplane mode so hopefully that helps. I wish there was a way to clear out all background apps to make it charge faster.

    The last phase of charging 80-100% is slow by default.

    Doesn't seem that long. I usually charge mine for a couple of hours in the evening whilst I'm running, cycling, having a bath etc, and then wear it during the night and the rest of the day.

    It takes about 2.5 hrs from between 10-20 to 100 percent.

    I've noticed that. It seems like the 90% phase is even slower.

    Yup, that's how charging works.

    But was your watch at 0% when you started charging? Normally, I have between 10-30% left when I put the watch on charger, so it takes a little less than two hours to charge fully.

    I think it was at 34%.

    Okay I'm checking it now - what it dropped down to 97%? And it's still not at 100 yet and it's on airplane mode. So weird...

    Try charging it at night while you sleep.

    Induction charging is way slower than having a direct connection.
