    Like totally and completely. Yesterday it was a bit iffy but still charged. Today? Nada.

    Has anyone has that happen? Do you guys think it's the cord or the battery? I did coconut battery test a few weeks ago and it seemed to be a good battery still. I'm so confused.

    It could be either.
    Have you tried another cord?
    Any store that sells the watch should have an extra cable or charging stand you could test the watch.

    Do what the above poster said. Just go into an Apple Store to check if with a different charger you get power.

    No reason to be confused. Just use the process of elimination like the others suggested.

    So i'm pretty sure its an issue with teh charger. I took the watch the the apple store yesturday and updated the ios there. the watch was charging just fine on the table chargers. Bought it home, and it didn't charge overnight. Today it died at 3 pm. I have an appointment with apple saturday. They will probably make me buy a new charger. Only lasted a little over 2 years :(

    When you bring your defective charger to Apple, allow them to look at it, and if they think it something that was out of your control why it stopped working, they might replace it with a new one for you if they are willing. They are usually good with things like this. But it's not a guarantee.

    That's what I'm hoping will happen.

    You’re right, that’s better than nothing. If you think about how many companies would actually even consider discounting a new charger for you, I would say not many. So at least it goes to show you the Apple considered your concern and provided you a discount when they didn’t have to.

    But nevertheless I can still recommend the charger I posted. It's on my nightstand and my watch rests there every night in a nice position. My Apple charger is now in my bag, so if I ever need to charge on the road or at work I will use that charger. That's why I love this night stand charger, as it has the charging build in and does not rely on the original one pressed into it.

    Thanks. Would love to but can't afford it, and I also live in Australia so it probably wouldn't work anyway.

    Nothing to do with australia. It uses a standard USB Plug and you use your iphone/iPad USB Charger.
    Dont know what it costs in Australia, but I paid 26 €
