Pixel Watch 2 Issues
In a detailed account shared on Reddit, a Pixel Watch 2 user described their frustrating experience with the device refusing to charge. Despite numerous attempts, the smartwatch remained unresponsive, rendering it impossible to set up. Uncertain whether the fault lay with the charger or the watch itself, the user contacted Google support, who acknowledged the issue as an ongoing problem with the Pixel Watch 2.
I’ve only had issues with the pixel watch 2 charger on fitbit chargers (looks like it visibly detects a charger, but just doesn’t register it charging), but I think that’s a pin issue? it takes so little time to charge vs the watch 1 that it hasn’t really bothered me much.

After several failed attempts, the user eventually obtained a new charger for the Pixel Watch 2, which initially seemed to resolve the problem. However, the issue resurfaced, leading to the replacement of the watch with a new unit that functioned correctly.

Users encountering charging issues with the Pixel Watch 2 faced a frustrating ordeal, exacerbated by difficulties in obtaining proper assistance from Google. Despite various attempts, a resolution only came when a user sought support from Google One, leading to a transfer to a Google Store executive. The problem’s origin—whether with the charger or the watch itself—remained ambiguous, underscoring the need for precise diagnosis to address the ongoing challenges faced by Pixel Watch 2 users.
I haven’t had any Pixel 8 issues, but I had a weird issue with my Pixel Watch 2. It stopped charging at 98%, and then fell back to 93% and stayed there.
