New Apple Watch Charging Cable is Shorter, Now Only 1M Long


Apple made key changes for the Apple Watch Series 2, and introduced some welcomed upgrades for the Series 1, and it looks like even the charging cable is getting a change, too.

As reported by MacRumors, the new charging cable, which runs into a wireless charging area to set the Apple Watch on, will only be 1-meter in length. That’s down from the 2M cable that was included with the original Apple Watch. So if you’re planning on buying a Series 1 or Series 2 Apple Watch next week, be aware that the charging cable will be a tad shorter than what was previously available.

Interestingly enough, Apple is still selling a 2M Apple Watch charging cable as a standalone product, which retail for $39. Those are available both in Apple retail stores and online. Apple is also selling extra 1M charging cables, too, which retail for $29. It’s also worth noting that Series 2 wearables will come with a 5W USB Power Adapter in the box, but Series 1 watches will not.

Did you order a Series 2 or Series 1 Watch?
