    Brand new SS watch. First day using it.Used it all day, went to charge it, and it got very hot. Would not come back from power reserve. Then it showed a diagram of the charger with a red thunderbolt. Now it is totally dead. Did a defective cable just kill the watch?

    It's possible, but none of us can truly answer that question. If I were you, I would have already been en route to the nearest Apple Store....Just Sayin'...

    If I saw a charger with a red lightning bolt through it, I'd assume it's telling me to plug in. If charging didn't work, I'd visit the Apple Store and let them try another cable before assuming my watch was dead. In any case, I'd get to a store ASAP for their diagnosis.

    Went to store. Swapped cables. Same thing happens. I got a defective one. Sometimes it charges, sometimes it just gets super hot and doesn't charge, and eventually gets so hot it won't turn on.

    That's disappointing to say the least.

    Okay, so now what? Are you going to exchange it or just deal with it?
