    Didn’t see Apple Watch Series 4 category so I’m posting this question here. So I upgraded my series 3 to a series 4 And it takes significantly longer for my series 4 to charge to 100% around a hour to hour and a hafe and that’s with the series 4 already at 46% to 50% . Where my series 3 would charge to a 100% in 15 to 20 minutes in the same situation. I made the mistake of letting my watch die it’s been on the charger for two hours right now it’s only a 49% Is anyone else seeing these kind of charge times on the Apple Watch Series 4

    Have you updated to watchOS 5.0.1? One of the bugs it fixes is charging. Might resolve it.

    Yes I have did that yesterday as soon as I read that it was out I was thinking that would help but it has not my watch is currently been on the charger going on 2 1/2 hours and it’s only at 55% If anything the update has made it charge even slower

    Haven’t got my series 4 yet so cannot confirm. My series 2 on 5.0.1 is charging fine. Perhaps it’s just a duff charger or watch. Are you using your series 3 charger or the one that came with the series 4?

    Using The PowerBrick and charging cable/puck that came in the box with the series 4 about to reset the watch an 2nd time to see if that does any to help

    I think I'd probably take it in to Apple, have them check it out or even just replace. While my Series 4 does seem a bit slower, I think in my case it has to do with using more battery each day. If I put it on the charger with about 25% left, it seems to take 90 minutes to two hours to charge -- that it seems yours is not really charging most of that time to only be at 55% in that amount of time.
