    Doesn’t work on 5 44mm

    Works great for my wife’s 38mm series 3 watch but not on my 44mm Series 5. Love how it doubles as iPhone lightning charger as well. Just wish it worked on my Series 5

    Love the look - function could be better.

    So, as an alternative to leaving your expensive watch tethered to a charger that will no doubt fall off of your bedside table, it's excellent.

    That being said, as a charger, it's not really that great and there are definitely better options out there that hold the watch in place. The unfortunate downside of the Qi standard is right now, coils within the device need to be aligned in order for the charge to happen. On this, I've noticed that despite the magnets helping the contact occur, it's not perfect and while the watch will be suspended, it won't charge. Also, if the circular piece that protrudes isn't set at 90 degrees, it will also not charge.

    There have been numerous mornings that I've left for the day only to be reminded of 10% on my watch. I'm a teacher and I use my watch throughout the day to set reminders and time lessons so that is a giant drawback.

    However, if it is placed well, it charges beautifully, no complaints there.

    If you're very prodigious with your things and ensure contact to charge, go for it. For the rest of us with busy lives for which we can't inspect a charger each time we place an item, avoid as this beautiful piece of tech will annoy you.
