    Mine is not charging as well. I am now on my 3rd cable. Frustrating.

    Mine did that a couple weeks ago. It turned out to be the power supply. At first I thought it was the watch because plugging in my phone charger did not work either. Just before I was going to contact Samsung, I tried it one more time and as luck would have it, I grabbed my tablet charger (has the data pins shorted to tell the device to charge). It worked, so after swapping back and forth between the original one, my phone charger and the tablet charger, I can for sure say the original charger is toast and you must use one with the shorted data pins like for a tablet.

    To all those having problems with charging. I can almost guarantee it is not the Gear at fault. Most of the time it is the cable, and/or the charger.. If you have the original charger, use that, and insert the micro USB correctly. I have a habit of LOOKING to see which way the micro is "dome up/dome down" so when I insert the cable in the charging dock, it is going in the correct way. A lot of users be putting the cable in wrong, then forcing it a bit, causing some damage, and then something doesn't work.. Take care in inserting charging cables should resolve all those problems. The rare time that unit is defective should be taken care of by the warranty.

    My power supply charger went bad.

    Charges fine with other charges or even computer USB.

    I had a problem charging. Looked at the charging connectors on the back of the watch and they were filled with sweat gunk. I used a cotton swab and cleaned the metal connectors thoroughly and it worked. Just a bad connection. Not sure of a solution for those with a brand new, out the box, device...

    Cool Re: Galaxy Gear: Watch will not charge

    guys i had the same issue, i kept my galaxy gear in the cabinet for a month and yesterday i took it off and try to charge but it won't charge.
    I tried with all cables i have, still hasn't got any luck.
    I cleaned the 5 pins behind the watch and give it a shot, it worked!
    i think the pins are needed to clean once in a while due to the accumulated sweats

    Try leaving it on the charger, Sometimes it takes hours for it to register charging if you let it go completely dead. I've had this problem in the past........

    Mine goes from dead to charged in a few minutes then goes dead after just a couple minutes unplugged. I do not see how that is not the watch going bad after just a few months.

    I had trouble last night trying to get my gear to charge. Cleaned the pins finally and it worked! Yay!
