The Apple Watch just like any other technological device can end up failing, either due to a hardware problem or a software problem. It is difficult to prevent this type of error, but if we can give you a solution with a series of steps that we are going to explain in the following article.

What to do if the Apple Watch is frozen

It may be the case that the content shown by our Apple Watch I was totally frozen and we cannot use it or access any app. In these cases we will not be able to carry out actions through the side buttons and neither if we press on the screen. In these cases we must resort to force restart our Apple Watch. Many users may think that this is a function that is only intended for iPhones or Macs, but it can also be done on the Apple Watch.

To perform this reset you simply have to hold down both side buttons for 10 seconds . After this time, the clock will turn off by itself and will show the characteristic Apple logo, this being a sign to know that the restart has been correctly restarted.

If the Apple Watch does not pass the bitten apple

When our equipment has just received a software update, or when we have simply restarted it, we see the company logo on the screen. In some cases it may be the clock was caught in this part and did not pass the logo to the full clock interface. This happens on both the Apple Watch and the iPhone and is unfortunately a fairly common failure. As in the previous case, we simply have to hold down the digital crown and the button at the bottom to force a restart of the device.

If, unfortunately, when performing the restart, this screen is still on, we will have to go to an Apple Store or a SAT to carry out a complete diagnosis. At the moment we cannot connect the Apple Watch to our Mac to format it, which would be the recommended thing to do in the case of the iPhone, but in the future we hope that there will be a similar method.

Is the time displayed in green on the Apple Watch?

If you are new to an Apple Watch, it is possible that you do not know very well how it works and you think that the equipment is broken when you try to turn it on and the time appears in green. This is neither more nor less than the energy saving mode that the Apple Watch incorporates.

When the watch battery is extremely low We can only check the current time when we keep the start button of the clock pressed. The solution obviously involves connecting the watch to the wireless charger that accompanies it to start recharging and we can turn it on normally.

As we have mentioned before, if the Apple Watch is not solved by forcing it to restart, it is possible that the problem is not in the software but that some component is defective. That is why in these cases it is best to go to an Apple Store for diagnosis and repair.
