    My charging dock was stolen along with some other stuff. Found out you cannot purchase it separately yet. So now I have a $300 paper weight. Called Verizon, best buy as well as Samsung and nothing.

    So just a heads up, be very careful not to break or lose that charging dock.

    Kind of ridiculous that no charger is available for purchase anywhere.

    Sorry regarding your misfortune. :(

    Decided to give it a shot myself via SAMSUNG CHAT & same info,w/a twist:

    Basically,each dock/cradle will only work w/the watch that it came with.They will repair,but,no extras are available at this time.
    The Chat CSR went on to state that the issue of cradle exclusivity to a particular watch is in the works,so that any cradle should be able to work,once this update/design change is implemented.

    If anyone has experienced anything contrary to the above,please chime in,as I wouldn't mind having an extra cradle to keep @ work/etc...... :)

    I didn't know it would only work with the dock it came with, that's even worse.

    Update: $28 and a 2 week turnaround. There is an NFC chip in the charging cradle that had to be paired to the gear.

    This is for a new cradle & shipping (assuming you had to send the GEAR to SAMSUNG for service/pairing of the cradle) ?

    If so,doesn't sound like too bad of a deal.Sorry that any expense had to be incurred,but,not too bad considering you have your GEAR to use once again.

    Yeah, that's right. Shipping both ways and a new cradle, but no usb charger. Just using one of my old ones. Not too bad.

    I just ordered one from the Samsung site. I don't know why I have such a problem finding accessories on their site.
