Why Does Apple Watch take so long to start up? Also, charge while off?

    anytime I turn on my Apple Watch it takes at least two minutes on the Apple logo. Is this common? Just wondering.

    Second; I know the iPhone charges faster when off. Can i charge the Apple Watch while it's off too? I tried turning it off while plugged in but it immediately turns back on. Again wondering.

    Yes, turning on the Apple Watch takes about 2 minutes to fully turn on, this is normal, I just tested this myself this morning. I don't think you can charge it while it is off. It charges pretty quickly when it is on that it really shouldn't make much of a difference anyway.

    It is normal. Due to the processor being slow.

    What Apple watch do you have? I saw a video that shows the series 2 starting up in about 1 minute compared to over 2 minutes for the series 0.

    It sucks that you can't charge it while its off. Is there any way to stop it from making that "battery full" notification noise? Only reason I ask is because I plan to charge the Watch while I sleep and that noise kept waking me up all night (I eventually just took it off the charger). I was an early adopter of the Apple Watch 1 and I don't remember having this issue. I have the Series 1.

    I believe if you put the Watch on silent, it won't make that sound.

    Use "do not disturb" night setting in your phone,should mute the watch too.

    "Theater Mode" actually mutes the Apple Watch and keeps the display dark until you tap the screen or press the digital crown to read a notification. This would be installed on the latest watchOS update.

    Yes,but using the function I mentioned,mutes it automatically at the set time every night,theatre mode must be turned on and off manually.
