    For all of you who have got your watches already, how strong is the connection between the charger and the watch? I have ordered a Speigen dock for my watch and don't want it to just fall off.

    Weaker then I expected, with that said I don't think it will fall off.

    Seems pretty strong to me. I just held it from the end of the sport band and tried shaking it loose, and it took a harder shake than I expected.

    My SS watch falls off very easy. Sometimes just moving it.

    I wouldn't say the magnet is strong but I can dangle my 42mm SS classic buckle from the charger cable once it's attached and even swing it around a bit before it falls off. On that basis im not planning on cancelling my Spigen stand order.

    Not as strong as I expected, but strong enough to do what they want it too

    The clip that Apple showed us really over played the strength of the magnet.

    I was expecting some resistance with the charging orientation and instead found the the charger can easily be misaligned.

    I was planning on ordering a Spigen dock but I'm not sure now either. The magnet is not as strong as I thought it would be. I tried lifting it up and the watch didn't fall but I'm worried it might fal if it's hanging on the dock and the dock gets bumped into.

    This may sound bad, but make sure you take off the protective film on the charger face. It is hard to see and will peel right off and make a stronger connection. The structural film underneath won't peel off easily, so don't go too crazy ;). Hope this helps anyone out there ( who over looked this like I did :eek: )
