    Worked for almost a year

    For a simple solid state device, almost a year of working doesn’t cut it. Error message: ‘accessory device not compatible’. I bought this 0.3m cable from the Apple online store long before third party versions even showed up. Wiping the charger clean seemed to help, but lasted only 10 minutes befor the error message renewed. Looks like if you don’t replace your MBPro, Watch, iPhone and iPads every single year, you are left out in the cold. I bought the first iMac sold in Rochester, NY in 1983, and have been dyed in light gray every since. I’m now over it, when “it” requires upgrading everyting all the time. And waiting THREE iOS releases before experiencing one that more of less works.

    Please DO ignore the lone 2* review!

    This is the perfect length for travel, which I keep in my carry-on along with a multi-USB wall charger, a couple of USB cables, foreign AC plug adapters & ear buds. Thus I'm ready to go at any given moment as far as charging/using various devices on the road is concerned. Now if only the same can be said for the clothes to pack etc. *sigh*

    The person who posted the 2* review should have read the product details carefully and purchased a cable of different length, instead of criticizing this one!

    These come in different lengths

    These charging cables come in different lengths of .3, 1 and 2 meters (a meter is just short of 3 feet). When shopping choose "Browse all" to see all the cable sizes available.

    Love the short cable option

    I'm very happy that Apple offers this short cable option. It perfect for travel, using it with a powerbank or a hotel nightstand USB outlet. It is also perfect for home and office use; my existing alarm clock has a USB charging port, as does my work laptop dock. The short cable drasticlly reduces clutter at my desk or in my travel bag-of-chargers-and-cables.

    For those curious: the total overall length from the far end of the disc to the tip of the USB plug is just over 12 inches. The length of the cable itself is 9 inches, not counting the strain relief bits at each end.

    I'm puzzled at the two-star review criticizing the shortest of three charger options for being too short. If that individual needed a longer charger/cable, she should have purchased the 1 meter or 2 meter cables. Personally I prefer that this did not include yet another superfluous single-port USB charger. I have a drawer full of them and another one would be a waste of materials and money.

    Great cord length

    Someone gave this cable a 2 star review because of the short cable. She must not be aware that the cable comes in an number of different lengths. To buy a short cable instead of a long cable and then complain about the cable being too short is a bit ... odd.

    You can find these cables from  in lengths of 0.3m, 1m, and 2m. So roughly 12 inches, 3 feet and 6 feet.

    Perfect for Travel

    This cable is exactly what I was looking for. Effectively you are looking at the same cable as the original that comes with the watch, but at a 0.3 m (11.8 inches) length. This is the ideal size for travel. Simply throw in your travel bag and easily charge your watch in your hotel room without all of the clutter.

    Pros and cons

    Pros: basic charger for iWatch
    Cons: adapter is not included and the cord is very short. So unless your outlet is literally right beside a desk or stand area, the cord cannot reach a surface. Therefore my watch will sometimes hang unless I place books or something underneath of it in order for it to lie flat. I wish Apple had made the cord longer to accommodate a longer length of space between an outlet and flat surface.
