In an era like this, where even devices that tear a five-figure cheque from your pocket don’t bring a charger, does the top-notch Apple Watch bring one? Gad Insider is here to resolve this mystery. 

Just so you know, the top-notch smartwatch in question is the iPhone maker’s Apple Watch Series 9, which made its way onto the market shelves in September 2023 and gathered mostly positive feedback, mostly. 

The high-end wearable brings a countless range of smart features, some even being the upgraded facets of the features seen on its predecessor, the Apple Watch Series 8. Among the revamped areas, the smartwatch includes a brighter display, a new S9 processor, carbon neutrality, and more.

Still looking for the answer? Here it is in simple words: No. Sounds disappointing? Well, it shouldn’t, considering Apple’s conventional treatment of Apple Watches, wherein we’ve been observing that none of the current models of Apple Watch come with a charger, not neglecting the freshly designed Apple Watch Series 9.

In short, there’s nothing to freak out about because Apple stopped offering chargers with its watches after the Apple Watch Series 6 that released in 2020.

Although recent models come with an Apple Watch Magnetic Fast Charger to USB-C Cable, they do not include a charging block to plug that cable into.

Why Apple does not offer chargers with Apple Watches

It's worth mentioning that Apple Watches and iPhones originally included a charging brick. Nevertheless, with the introduction of the iPhone 12 series and Apple Watch Series 6, Apple declared that it would no longer provide a power adapter, attributing the decision to a desire to minimise packaging.
