Can someone explain why I should use the 5W or 12W charger on an Apple Watch Sport? (Both are listed as an Apple Watch accessory.)

The Apple Watch Sport comes with the 5W standard.

  • I had a heck of a time with the 5w charger. My watch would not hold a charge more than a few hours. The next night, I charged it with the 12w charger I had, and by 11:40 am the next day, it's at 77%, so much better results!! I've already ordered another cord, and 12w charger. Much easier than replacing my watch :).
    Of course, who knows, I might have just received a defective 5w charger....
