    hey,

    I used the nice long 1.5 meter charging cable of the S0 to get from a wall outlet all around my bed to right next to my head until I got my S2 yesterday. The new watch doesn't play along with the old charger!

    Is it the USB piece? Or the cable? I don't wanna buy a new 1.5 meter cable since they shortened the one that comes in the box...

    Simple troubleshooting gives an answer that no one here can. One or 2 of these elementary tests below will isolate the defect in the chain.

    • Plug old puck into new wall adaptor
    • Plug new puck into old wall adaptor
    • Plug old puck into Mac or PC
    • Plug new puck into Mac or PC

    Do the two wall things have different part numbers or specs stamped on them?

    I was going to say that my S2 works just fine with the S0 charger.

    Same here. For my S2, I'm using the cable/charger that came with the S0 watch I ordered when they first became available. No issues.

    Old watch needs OS3 installed in order to work with new charging system of series 2.

    NA since it is a S2 Watch and S0 charger puck. OP has found the problem to be a defective wall adaptor.

    Yep. Otherwise many people who bought Apple Stand will be so pissed.

    Odd, just got my S2 and when I plugged it into my old S0 charger/plug it said 'accessory not supported' - but once I paired it with my phone it started working.

    I am still using a series 0 charger with my ceramic series 2. Works perfectly
