Samsung Gear 2 Smart watch like all the smart device needs constant charging as the battery drains as the usage increases, and charging the device is a bit of a complicated procedure compared to the smartphones where all you need to do is connect the charger wire to the charging port. And start charging but in this case Samsung has provided an external charging dock which acts as the charging interface between the charger and the Gear 2. It has been done to keep the size of Gear 2 on a thinner side.

The charging dock has Charging Terminals at the back side which should be aligned to the Charging terminals present above the Heart Rate sensor on back of the Gear 2 to charge the device. And there is a Multipurpose Jack present on the side where you need to put the charger wire in.

Keep these in mind that only Samsung-approved chargers, batteries and connecting cables should be used in charging your Gear 2 device as other products can cause harm to your device, and as Samsung has given in their manual, the battery can even explode.
