How to Tell if Your Apple Watch Is Charging
When your watch needs to charge, you will see a red lightning bolt on the screen. It changes to green when your watch is charging. If there is no lightning bolt and you don’t see the Apple Magnetic Charging Cable icon, charge your phone for up to 30 minutes.
Tip 1: When you charge your Apple Watch, you want to make sure to plug the Apple Magnetic Charging Cable fully into the USB Power Adapter. You also want to make sure the adapter is plugged fully into a power outlet.
Tip 2: It’s best to use the Apple Magnetic Charging Cable and USB Power Adapter that came with your watch.
Tip 3: Did you just get the Apple Watch? Make sure to completely remove the plastic wrap from both sides of the charger.
Tip 4: Position the back of your Apple Watch on the charger so that the magnets align with your Apple Watch. If aligned correctly, you will see the green lightning bolt.
Tip 5: Check the back of your Apple Watch and the magnetic charger to make sure both are clean.
Tip 6: If you have a different Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable and USB power adapter, try them and see if they work.
