How to check if you've an authentic Apple Watch charger; Apple warns using non-certified chargers.

Apple cautions users against using non-certified Apple Watch chargers

Apple says counterfeit or uncertified chargers could lead to slow charging, repeated chimes and reduced battery lifespan for your Apple Watch.

Apple just published a support document advising users to charge their Apple Watches only with authentic and certified chargers.

In the support document, Apple says the use of a counterfeit or uncertified charger could lead to slow charging, repeated chimes and reduced battery lifespan for your Apple Watch.

The company also provided guidelines on how to identify chargers made by Apple. Users can look out for the following model numbers on the Apple Watch charging cable:

A1570A1598A1647A1714A1768A1923A2055A2056A2086A2255A2256A2257A2458A2515A2652A2879

Alternatively, Apple Watch users can check the manufacturer of the charger using the Mac. It is a slightly more tedious process as you need to access the Apple Menu > System Settings > General > About > System Report > USB.

There are also MFi-certified chargers by third-party manufacturers such as Belkin that have the "Made for Apple Watch" badge/logo on their packaging. Users can also cross-check the certification of their third-party Apple Watch charger through this public database.
