    I’m on watchOS 4 .2.2. I’m still not sure if it’s a software problem or something else. My watch rarely charges to 100%.

    I was in 4.2.2 but I updated to 4.2.3 the other night. I’ll see if it continues to happen but I’m sure it will. Sad that I have to think this way.

    Edit: Even on 4.2.3 it’s not fully charging every time.

    I’ve noticed something else when charging my watch. When I take it off the charger in the morning, if it is cool to the touch, it is charged to 100%. If it feels warm, it’s usually around 95% or even less. It’s the strangest thing I’ve ever seen! It’s not really a big deal but it is annoying

    Mine sometimes charges to 100% and sometimes only 95%. After 12 hour days, I have never dropped below 70%. Whatever is going on it's not worth me getting it exchanged.

    I wouldn’t exchange it either. It’s obviously a software issue of some sort considering it does actually charge to 100% after a reboot. Even so, it’s not a large issue but more of an OCD issue.

    That stinks. The various Apple OSs have been riddled with bugs and this seems to be one of them. I’ve had a WiFi issue with my iPad Pro that has yet to be resolved. Super annoying.

    A similar situation came up with people complaining that their iPads were charging to just short of 100% but never 100% that they could see.

    Apple said that the iPads charge and discharge and charge so as not to overcharge the battery. I've only seen the one reference, where ever that was.

    I wonder if the same thing is being done for the Watch. It's battery is much smaller and overcharging and heat would be less Watch friendly.
    I think this must be what is going on. I put mine on the charger at night, and I see it get to a full ring charged, but by morning it will be between 92% and 98%. It is annoying, but I try not to worry about it, since it is still between 70% and 75% 16 hours later when I put it back on the charger. I'm trying to remind myself that the number that matters is the charge at the end of the day, not the beginning.

    I ran into issues where I had sudden battery drain for no reason, typical daily use where I would be 80% left at the end of the day and the next I would be 2% by 10am when I put the watch on at 7am with no unusal use. I had to do a full reset and restore to get that issue resolved and lose my achievements. Then I started getting having it only charge to 94% overnight several nights in a row, had to power it off, unpair, repair and then its been fine. OS issues are becoming common place. Still far better than non Google branded phones (which get regular updates) where other Android OEM's due to the Carriers don't get updates. That is a key reason I have stayed with Apple is the updates. Still I expect better from Apple today like we got from the Apple of Steve Jobs, where quality was # 1.

    I don’t see this as the issue because it doesn’t always happen. It takes several days for this glitch to begin happening which I would think means it’s not supposed to happen. If it was happening every time and on every Apple device including iPhones then sure. But my watch was only charging to 95% but after a reboot it charges to 100%. Is this a huge deal? Not really but it’s still annoying.

    I had my S3 watch since October ‘17. I never had this problem until the last OS update. I think it’s a bug in the update that Apple needs to fix. Turning it off and back on fixes it for a couple days only. I may call Apple and complain...unless they send a patch soon.

    I think the latest update this week to the OS on Apple Watch might have fixed the battery charging issue, though Apple Inc. has not admitted it, and just said the Apple logo got hung up sometimes when restarting the watch. Apple is a prideful company and does not like to admit something of their own fault. But people will still buy their products for prices way higher than the competition...including me.
