Last Christmas I got some money from a few people and, ad I'd been gifted a Galaxy watch, I thought it prudent to pick up Samsung charger pad so that I could charge phone and watch together. I spent on an official charger because I don't believe in taking risks with knock-off chargers, and it wasn't cheap. But it's been a really good investment. Up until now.
This year I decided to treat myself and trade up to a 5 Pro. I'm clumsy and spend a lot of time working around vehicles and equipment, so the robust design and build of the 5 Pro appealed.
I was chuffed to pieces with the watch until I went to place it on the charger for the first time, and found that the design of the strap makes it impossible to sit the watch on the charging pad.
As far as I can tell, there isn't a fix for this, so I'm back to having two sockets out of commission, and I'm effectively out of pocket, having spent money and fair words on a wireless charging pad that is not compatible with my new watch.
This is all fairly rubbish from Samsung. I love their gear as a rule. But nonsense like this is infuriating.
