This is a tutorial on how to charge the Samsung Galaxy Gear S2. For those of you unfamiliar with this amazing smartwatch, it's a waterproof multi-function smartwatch produced by Samsung. In terms of smartwatches, it's one of the best pieces of technology on the market. In fact, many people feel that it is superior both in terms of function and aesthetics. Technically it's also superior to the Apple iWatch, but you didn't read that here. Obviously technology changes constantly, so it won't be top dog forever. One of the great things about the Samsung Galaxy Gear S2 is the wireless induction charging. Just slip off your watch, drop it in the cradle, and charge away. OK, it's a bit more involved than that to get started, but once you're set up it really is that easy. Read on for the details.
Set Up Your Wireless Charger
The very first thing you will need to do to charge your new Galaxy Gear S2 smart watch is to unwrap the magnetic wireless charger. This is because the charger itself is wrapped in clear plastic. While it still works as a charger, it looks bad.
- 2After that, plug in the charger. Now, some have found this to be a bit counterintuitive, because the watch lists itself as wirelessly charging, and the wireless charging device is quite small without any immediately visible raw connections or ports. At least, not until you look on the back of the charger.Advertisement
- 3When you look on the back of the charger, you'll see a little micro USB charging port. This is where you will plug-in your charger. You will use the same charger that you use for your Samsung Galaxy smart phone or other Android device. There is also a charger included with the Gear S2 watch, should you need it.
- 11That's it. You are now charging your new smartwatch. Once your Samsung Galaxy Gear S2 is fully charged, you can simply remove it from the wireless charger by picking it up. This is because it is only attached with magnets.

Questions and Answers
What is wrong with my charger?
When I plug it in, it flashes red green red, and then when I put my watch on nothing shows up. I have tried: Unplugging and plugging back in. I think it was caused by: No idea, it's a geek refurbished from best buy
Edit: I had the same problem and used a different cable. The watch charger didn't like the cable, and neither does my phone. Hope that helps! -Ashleigh
