Apple Watch Not Charging: Couple of Solutions to Fix the Issue

Apple Watch has a battery life of 24 hours, a few hours less than the battery life of the iPhone. This requires any user to charge the Apple Watch battery nearly every day. And if the user fails to charge the battery, s/he has to face consequences the next day.

But what if Apple Watch is not charging due to some technical reason? Recently, many users, who have purchased Apple Watch from the first batch, are reporting a problem of charging their smartwatch; moreover, they also complain of battery drain of connected iPhones.
