So, how do you charge an Apple Watch, then? If you're familiar with Apple's Magsafe charging on its MacBook range of laptops then you're going to be half way there with how the Apple Watch charges. The contraption you see hanging from the back of the watch in the image above is the Magsafe charger which allows Apple to keep the watch completely sealed. No Lightning ports, no ridiculous cradles, just a cable and a specially designed Magsafe connector.
