Apple recently released its new smartwatch — Apple Watch Series 7 — in the latest move to further boost its presence in the growing smartwatch market, and now in a new support document the iPhone maker revealed that any USB-C power adapter with power delivery (USB-PD) of 5W or greater will support fast charging on the new watch.
The fast charging capability requires a new USB-C charging cable that Apple includes in the box with the watch.
“Fast charging requires an Apple USB-C Magnetic Fast Charging Cable. This cable has aluminum around the magnetic charger and a USB-C connector,” notes Apple.
