Samsung’s Galaxy Watch Ultra loses key charging feature – check out why!

Atlanta, Georgia – Samsung’s latest Galaxy Watch releases have made a notable change by removing a useful charging feature. The new Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra models no longer support the ability to wirelessly charge the watch with a phone, a feature that was popular among users.

For years, Samsung’s Galaxy Watch series has utilized wireless charging, allowing users to use Wireless PowerShare to charge up their watches using a compatible Galaxy device. However, with the launch of the Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra, this feature has been removed, as confirmed by Samsung’s support page.

According to Samsung, the removal of wireless charging support is due to the upgraded health sensors on the new watches, which have led to changes in the design of the bottom glass. This design alteration has increased the distance between the internal wireless charging coil of the watch and the wireless charger, making wireless power sharing no longer feasible.

Additionally, Samsung has noted that older chargers may still work with the new models, but they will charge at a slower speed and may generate more heat. The company recommends using the charger specifically designed for the Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra to ensure optimal charging performance.

Both the Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra are currently available for pre-order and are set to ship later this month. The exclusion of wireless charging support in these new models marks a notable change for Samsung’s smartwatch lineup, impacting the way users charge their devices and highlighting the company’s focus on health and wellness features in its latest offerings.
