    Ok, I have a silly question. Bought an AW off Craigslist this week and it came with two charging cables. They look different so I'm just curious which one is the genuine one. See pic below.



    The all white one has a much longer cable.

    I can't verify the authenticity of the cables but the charger for the Sport comes with a white housing while the Stainless Steel comes with a chrome housing. So to the naked eye either of them could be authentic. Hope this helps!

    Lol. Had no idea they were different model to model. Mine is the sport model so prob the white one then. So you know how long the original cable is?

    According to Apple they come in three lengths, 0.3m, 1m and 2m. I'm not in front of mine right now but I'm inclined to think it's 1m. I don't remember there being enough slack from the top of my dresser to the outlet for it to be 2m.

    The cable that came with my Apple Watch Sport is 2 meters long with the all white charging end. The cable that I purchased separately from the Apple Store online (which is 1 meter long) has the chrome charging end.

    Hmm.. When I get some I'll take a look at my SS cable and let you all know for sure.

    Thanks for verifying, everyone. My charger with the white disc is 2m, so that's probably the one original one. Thanks for checking!

    Both are genuine. The all white comes with the watch, and the stainless is the official Apple Charger sold in 3 lengths at the Apple Stores ...
