Subscribe to our newsletter, be the first to know about new products, contests and promotions!

Remember Apple’s viral 2002 ad with Ellen Face relaxingly explaining under the influence of Benadryl how reliable Apple products are? The days when this video was relevant are irrevocably gone. This is especially true of the Apple Watch Smartwatch, the forums of the happy owners of which are full of annoyance and messages about bugs, errors, and shortcomings. Some issues bother users more often than others. Here is a list of the 10 most common problems and how to deal with them.

  • Bluetooth frequently disconnects or cannot pair at all
  • Watch battery runs out too quickly
  • IPhone battery drains in hours
  • The watch is not charging
  • Freeze and crash

  • Can’t connect to Android (Samsung, Xiaomi, HTC, etc.)

Apple Watch can be put into power saving mode and will only show the time. Press and hold the side button until the Eco Mode slider appears, slide it to the right.

Open the Watch app on your iPhone and turn off unnecessary notifications.

Go to “Settings” in your watch. scroll down and select Text Brightness and Size. Decrease brightness.

An application might be causing the problem. Remove all unnecessary applications. To do this, on the Home screen, press and hold the program icon until the “X” icon is displayed, press it. Don’t worry, this won’t remove apps from your iPhone. You can also uninstall apps via your smartphone by selecting the Watch app and turning off the Show on Apple Watch option for unnecessary apps.

The last resort is again, restore factory settings. This is done through the menu “Settings” “General” “Reset” “Erase content and settings”.

Are too slow

A large number of users complained about the slow operation of the device. There are several ways to improve its performance.

How to pair and unpair an Apple Watch and iPhone

The presented list of problems and problems, of course, is far from complete. For more rare and exotic problems, contact Apple technical support (on a weekday and preferably not on Monday). Or, alternatively, pay attention to “smart” watches on Android: there are more of them, they are cheaper, and are now compatible with iOS.

Freeze and crash

There have been several reports that the Apple Watch turns off randomly or does not respond to requests (“crashing” and “freezing”). To keep your watch from freezing, here’s what you can try.

Try turning off your watch by holding down the side button and sliding the switch to the right. Press the button until the Apple logo appears to turn it on. Most likely, a reboot will only help temporarily.

Open the Watch app on your smartphone, go to the “My Watch” “General” “Software Update” tab and check if you need to update.

Falls can be caused by a specific application. If you notice a connection between frequent use of a particular application and the unstable operation of the device, uninstall this program.

Sometimes, a hard reset can help sort out these issues. In the watch, select “Settings” “General” “Reset” “Erase all content and settings.” After that, you will have to re-configure the clock.
