Apple now sells an Apple Watch Magnetic Fast Charger to USB-C cable (1m), available for $39 CAD on Apple.ca.
According to Apple, “we wanted to make charging your Apple Watch utterly effortless. And now, it charges up to 33% faster when paired with Apple Watch Series 7, so you can reach 80% charge in about 45 minutes.”
Apple says with 8 minutes of charging, that is enough to provide 8 hours of sleep tracking. The 33% faster charging time is compared to Apple Watch Series 6. You’ll also need to use a 20W USB-C power adapter to achieve these faster charging speeds.
Only Apple Watch Series 7 supports fast charging, so you’ll need to open your wallet if you want faster charging speeds.
With USB-C, that means you can charge your Apple Watch with a compatible iPad that has a USB-C port (iPad mini 6th gen; iPad Pro; iPad Air 4th gen) and the latest Mac models as well. The magnetic charger will still charge older Apple Watch models but at regular speeds.

Apple Watch Series 7 doesn’t have a pre-order date yet, other than it is coming “this fall”, according to Apple. The unknown launch date suggests previous reports of production delays may be possibly accurate.
