    So I've noticed while the Apple Watch charges, it gets pretty warm, and I'm guessing this is normal having the SS case (I had a sports and it never got warm while charging).

    Ive also noticed once waking up and checking the watch, it still remains quiet warm, even though it would have hit 100% a good 4-5 hours ago.

    Is it normal for the watch to constantly be warm while on the charger, even when at 100%, is anyone else with the SS finding this is the case? Is this safe?, is it damaging the battery?, should we be removing the watch as soon as it hits 100%?.

    Same for me. When I take the watch off the charger every morning, the watch was warm.

    Mine isn't, but it's on the charger for about 8-10 hours so it's got a lot of time to cool down after finishing charging. The ones I tried on at the Apple store were all very warm and the genius that helped me said that was totally normal.

    It's magnetic induction. Why would you think it would be anything but warm?

    I was having the same problem. Did a hard reset on my watch and my phone and it wasn't hot last night. Give that a shot...otherwise its normal if its just warm. If its hot to the point you can't touch it theres a problem
