    So I've had the watch charging for about 90 mins. Part of those 90 mins have been doing the set up, but for whatever reason the watch is yet to break the 81% charge capacity. Is anyone else seeing this extremely slow charging. If you use your iPad or iPhone while it's charging it still completes the charge. FYI I've used the included 5W charger then switched and tried my macbook pro and same thing.
    I've rebooted also

    did you take the film off the charger magnet thingy. I could barely see it on mine but there is a film. maybe thats making it not work right for you.

    Yes took off the film. The one thing I just noticed is I used my "extra" cable that I purchased and the watch is now charging at what I would expect to be normal speed. Wondering if there is an issue with the plastic charger that comes with the sport model. The charging cable that is bought separate is metal.

    Something similar happened to mine. Would not gain charge. Restarted and it dropped. Now it's fine.

    It doesn't seem to charge quickly if you're playing with it.
