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.

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.

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.
