Google Pixel Watch 2 suffers from charging issues.
Several Reddit users have reported that their Pixel Watch 2 units are not charging when plugged in. Users are confused whether this is due to a faulty charger or the smartwatch itself.One user reported that the device did not charge at all. He bought a new charger, which worked OK at first but finally died. The user also attempted to change the cable, wall socket, use USB ports on the laptop, and other options, but all were futile.
The user did not receive a satisfying response from Google, but the search giant recognized that it was a ‘ongoing issue’ with the Pixel Watch 2. He also received a replacement Pixel Watch 2, which is said to be fully functional. Unfortunately, other users experiencing the same charging issues will not be fortunate enough to receive a replacement item. As a result, it’s unclear if the charger or the smartwatch is faulty. The answer to the problem is also unknown.
