In terms of technology, Apple watch is one of the most advanced timepieces in the market today. It basically does what you can normally do on an iPhone right from your wrists such as send or receive text messages, make or receive calls and so much more. Little it may seem, it is a reliable tool for your day to day activities. If your Apple watch is not responding or refuse to turn On, there are a few ways to try to fix it to make Apple watch function again. Read on below to find out why.
Charge your watch
Perform a force restart
If your Apple Watch is not turning on, there could be a few issues causing the problem. A dark screen doesn't mean disaster. Most of these issues can be solved quite quickly, even if you have already tried charging your Apple Watch overnight. Unless your watch is completely drained, you should be able to turn on your Apple Watch in just a few minutes following some simple steps. The most common reason for an Apple Watch's display to go dark and the watch to become unresponsive are battery issues, but unless you've been wearing the Apple Watch all day, the first troubleshooting step you should perform is a hard reboot. After all, we don't want to wait a half-hour or more for the watch to charge if that isn't the problem. The Apple Watch may have experienced a software issue, or you may have simply triggered a mode that caused the Watch to go dark. A hard reboot will force the device to turn off allowing us to then turn on the Apple Watch. This should solve almost any problem except a dead battery.
Check the battery, and check your Apple Watch charger
Apple Watches have all kinds of great features for you to enjoy, but sometimes, they run into problems. This is hardly unique, as hardware or software issues can limit the functionality of any Apple product, or any electronic device, for that matter. The first is that it has frozen, and is therefore completely unresponsive. The next is that it is in Power Reserve mode. It is sometimes that hard reset that galvanizes it back into action. The Digital Crown functions the same as a Home button would on earlier versions of the iPhone. The watch should now boot back up by itself, and hopefully, it will be fully operational again.
Do not panic. You should be able to turn on your device by pressing and holding the side button until the Apple logo appears. If your device is not responding, see the tips below:. Please ensure that your watch battery is charged enough. It is possible that you are unable to turn on your watch because the battery is fully depleted and there is little to no power for your watch to run. If not, your watch is not charging. Charge your watch at least 30 minutes.
