Can someone please explain why Samsung have stated that the watch will charge quickly. I put my watch on a Samsung wireless dual fast charger and from 13% to fully charged is 1hr 58 minutes. Not great Samsung. Miss sold I feel.

Try the actual charger that came with the watch n see if it makes any difference.

You have to buy a type C charger. You'd think a Samsung wireless fast charger would cut it wouldn't you?

Which charger are you using?  There's fast, and there's superfast.

 

Depending on what your charger will output, will determine what your watch wireless puck will deliver.

Are you using a USB-C port on the mains charger? or are you using a USB-A to C adapter?  This will make a huge difference

I can only agree. I have been also very disappointed in the charging speed.

I have both the Dual Fast Charger and the Type-C magnetic fast-charge puck the watch came with. I have tried both with the Samsung power brick, an Anker 20W, and Anker 65W Super Fast Charger. When measuring the power being delivered to either wireless charger, the Watch 5 gets at max 2.6w of power. I also measured my old Watch 4, and it too only received about 2.5w of power. Considering the Watch 5 is supposed to charge at up to 10W, something seems off.
