    Techradar reckons these new watches will only charge on the supplied charging dock and also the Samsung duo charger has anyone heard/read anything similar? Has anyone got the galaxy watch and tried charging on a third party QI charging pad?
    Feel free to move this question to an appropriate place I wasnt sure where to post it.

    I've tried it and no it doesn't work on any other QI chargers. I have 2 Samsung QI chargers and it won't work on either style. Only the supplied charger. Little annoying.

    The gear s3 never charged on anything other than the supplied charger for me. Must have something to do with the size of the coil in the charger.

    I purchased these...

    Kissmart Replacement Gear S3 Charger (2PCS), Charging Cradle Dock for Samsung Gear S3 Classic/Frontier Smart Watch (Black - 2PCS) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07147G874...cUvbUpU6335004


    They do charge the watch at seemingly the same speed, but there IS a message on watch that reads "use original charger" . I use one at my desk at work so I have been checking it frequently while charging and there is no heat build up. I will use them sparingly as the battery in the 46mm is a beast!

    Wonder why they didn't make it compatible with other chargers.
    I'm getting a free duos charger with mine so that can be my bed stand and I'll use the original/included one at work

    You can get a free one by ordering a Note 9 now. That's how I'm getting a free one. And I'm getting their rugged case for free too.

    This, I figured at the very least it would charge on my Moto 360 charger, but nope!

    I'm late to this thread, having only recently gotten a Galaxy Watch, but mine charges on my regular 3rd party pads I charge my phone with. I will say it's sometimes tricky getting it lined up just right so it will charge.

    I bought this one

    Samsung Galaxy Watch Charger Stand, Replacement Charging Stand Charging Cradle Dock Adapter Holder Compatible for Samsung Galaxy Watch (46mm/42mm) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H92ZKMS...cUvbUpU6393718

    It works great but it is finicky. It has to be on the stand perfectly or you get the use original charger error or it flips back and forth in landscape mode. Sort of weird. Get it on square it is perfect.
