The Apple Watch may be a much simpler device than your iPhone, but that does not mean that it is free of bugs, glitches and crashes just like your other devices. A common problem is a frozen screen due to a malfunctioning app. While this can be frustrating, the solution can be as simple as a quick reboot.
Restarting the Apple Watch
For less serious problems, a quick reboot should be enough. Turn off the device by pressing and holding the side button – not the digital crown. The Power menu appears, which also includes options for viewing your medical ID or emergency call. Turn your watch off by sliding Power Off to the right and then back up by holding down the same side until you see the Apple logo.
Tip: You can not restart an Apple Watch
Force Apple Watch to restart
If the device is frozen seriously and does not respond to the side key action, hold the side key and digital crown simultaneously for about ten seconds long pressed seconds. The screen turns off and the Apple logo is displayed. In this case, you can release the keys.
However, if you update watchOS on your Apple Watch, do not try to force the reboot. Just wait, if it feels like it takes too long. You should see the Apple logo and a progress bar during an update.
