Charging Galaxy Watch

Charging Galaxy Watch itself is effortless. Set it down on the wireless charging dock and the charging process begins on its own.

Charging Galaxy Watch

1 Plug the small end of the charger into the charger port of the wireless charging dock and plug the large end of the charger into an electric socket.
Wireless Charging Dock
2 Place the Galaxy Watch into the wireless charging dock aligning the center of your Galaxy Watch’s back side with the center of the wireless charging dock.

If the Galaxy Watch and the wireless charging dock do not come into contact with each other properly, the Galaxy Watch may not charge well.

Charging Galaxy Watch

Please Note:

  • Use only Samsung-approved chargers, batteries, and cables. Unapproved chargers or cables can cause the battery to explode or damage the Galaxy Watch.
  • Use the supplied wireless charging dock and charger. The Galaxy Watch cannot be charged properly with a third-party charger.
  •  Connecting the charger improperly may cause serious damage to the device. Any damage caused by misuse is not covered by the warranty
  • Do not expose the wireless charging dock to water because the wireless charging dock does not have same water- and dust- resistance certification as your Galaxy Watch.
Checking Charging Status

When you connect the Galaxy Watch and the wireless charging dock, the wireless charging dock’s LED indicator flashes certain colours to indicate the charging status.

  • Red: Charging
  • Green: Fully charged
  • Orange : Connect to low-power adaptor

When there is an error with the wireless charging dock, the LED indicator flashes red.


Remove your Galaxy Watch from the wireless charging dock first and wait until the LED indicator stops flashing. Once it stops flashing, you may proceed to place your Galaxy Watch onto the wireless charging dock and charge the device again. If the error occurs again, please contact our Samsung Service Centers for service support.

Battery Charging Tips

• Avoiding having the Galaxy Watch and wireless charging dock come in contact with sweat, liquids, or dust

• When the battery power is low, the battery icon appears empty

• If the battery is completely discharged, the Galaxy Watch cannot be turned on immediately when the charger is connected. Allow a depleted battery to charge for a few minutes before turning on the Galaxy Watch

• If you use multiple apps at once, the battery will drain quickly. To avoid losing power during a data transfer, always use these apps after fully charging the battery

• Using a power source other than the charger, such as a computer, may result in a slower charging speed due to a lower electric current

• If the Galaxy Watch is being charged with other devices via a multi charger, charging may take longer

• The Galaxy Watch can be used while it is charging, but it may take longer to fully charge the battery

• If the Galaxy Watch receives an unstable power supply while charging, the touchscreen may not function. If this happens, disconnect the Galaxy Watch from the wireless charging dock

• While charging, the Galaxy Watch may heat up. This is normal and should not affect the Galaxy Watch’s lifespan or performance. If the battery gets hotter than usual, the charger may stop charging

• Avoid using a bent or damaged USB cable
