After only 5 minutes or so connected to the charger my Watch 6 shows a "CHarging Paused" message  and will actually discharge from that point. What do I do about this? I cannot ever get a full charge on the watch.

What are you charging it with? Does it have a case with metal in or around it?

What charging brick? The old Samsung ones aren't that good or the 2.5W bricks aren't enough as well.

It's not a brick. It's a round disk. I've used it before on my Galaxy 4 watch. Does it not work on the 6?

Yes you need the newer one and also that's the cable and not the wall charger. Some of them don't draw enough or too much because it doesn't support PPS. If I was at home I can show you exactly why it's happening. I have the GW3 and GW6 cables and I have a various amount of chargers. There is a difference between the 2 cables.

Unfortunately, I'm away from home this week (which is why I was using that charger. I'm pretty sure I have the one that came with the watch at home. I'll try that next week.

You have to use the new charging puck that came with the watch the old pucks don't provide enough power
