apple: Apple Watch Series 7 does not support this feature in India – Times of India

Apple Watch Series 7 went on sale in India recently. Among other features Watch Series 7 is designed to offer faster charging. However, as per an update on Apple’s support page, the smartwatch will not support fast charging in India right now. “Fast charging is not available in Argentina, India, or Vietnam,” says the company’s support page. The reason for the same is not clear. Apple has not officially said anything on why the feature is currently not available in India. It is also not known if the support for fast charge will be rolled out later in the country.
As per Apple, with fast charge, Apple Watch Series 7 battery level can go from 0 percent to 80 percent in about 45 minutes. Fast charging requires an Apple USB-C Magnetic Fast Charging Cable. This cable has aluminum around the magnetic charger and a USB-C connector. Users also need one of these power adapters:

  • Apple 18W, 20W, 29W, 30W, 61W, 87W, or 96W USB-C Power Adapter
  • A comparable third-party USB-C power adapter that supports USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) of 5W or greater
