    This may or may not have been covered, don't shoot the messenger, but if the Apple Watch charger can charge a Moto 360 Watch, in theory, shouldn't other inductive chargers be able to charge the Apple Watch too? :D

    That's great news that they are using a standard.

    If this is true then it would also mean people can purchase other smart watch stands with inductive charging built in, and use it for their Apple Watch!

    That would be a valid test if they actually did charging, rather than placing a fully charged watch on it.

    (but, that the moto works with the apple charger doesn't mean the inverse is true).

    Earlier reviews of the apple watch said that it did NOT work with industry standard wireless charging standards.

    Doubtful. The charger still communicates with the Watch to determine battery state and AFAIK, there is no industry wide standard. I have a transdermal inductive charger for an implant that does just that (of course, it's a much more expensive medical device, but still has the same engineering criteria needed for safe LiIon charging).

    I can confirm this does NOT work

    Just tried it with a dead 360!

    It had to have been too good to be true. # Thanks!

    It actually does work but very slowly....not enough to bring back from the dead!
