Solution to the most common problems of your Apple Watch like Pairing to Screen Issues.
Smartwatches have been an essential and most useful gadget to use. And Apple Watch remains to be one of the best smartwatches you can invest in. However, it may be providing the convenience and features anyone needs from a smartwatch, but it still experiences issues sometimes. Because of that, we’ve collated some of the most common Apple watch problems and how to solve it.
Problem in Pairing?
First, try to pair your devices manually instead of through the viewfinder method. On the pairing screen, simply tap on Pair Apple Watch Manually and follow the prompts. If it still doesn’t work, try to reboot both your devices first. This will reboot the system and then you can try to connect them again. It is also important to make sure your devices are in close proximity with each other.
Device Not Charging?
You probably know this, but whenever you charge your Apple Watch it shows a little green lightning bolt icon. If it doesn’t show, your device probably has some charging issues.
What you can do for this issue is check the outlet first. Most people do not check this first, and end up not checking it at all. Check if the outlet works by plugging in another appliance to it. You can also try to plug your charger to another outlet to see if that is the problem.
If the issue persists, check if the charging cable is inserted properly into the device. You may also clean your magnetic charger and the back of your Apple watch. You may also try using a different charger. Apple recommends users to use the charging cable with the Watch, but if it doesn’t work, try another one.
Last resort to solve your charging issue would be to force restart your Apple Watch. You can do this by holding both the side button and Digital Crown until you see the Apple logo.
Any device needs system updates every once in a while. And older versions of Apple Watch may sometimes have trouble updating. If ever you experience the error message “unable to install update“, you can try these steps:
Before updating your device, make sure to follow these certain steps. First, your Apple Watch needs to have enough battery for it to update completely. You can place your device on a charger prior to the update. Also, ensure that your devices, iPhone and Apple Watch, are both connected to the Wi-Fi, it would be needing a strong signal to complete the update.
If all these precautionary steps are made, and yet your device still fails to update, try deleting the software update file. To do so, open the Watch app on your iPhone. Go to General > Software & Update > tap Delete. Make sure to restart your device to make sure that the new setting kicks in. Afterwards, you can try to re-download the update once more.
Another possible problem with much older versions of Apple Watch is not having enough safety for the update. Make sure to free up enough storage for the update to be successful.
Having problems with your screen?
In case you experience some glitches with your display, here are a few things you can try.
Since your screen doesn’t work, you can first try to force restart your device. To do so, press and hold the side button and the Digital Crown for at least 10 seconds. Once the Apple logo appears, you can let both buttons go.
There are times that the battery is the issue, and to cross this off make sure to check yours. Try to place your device on its charger and see if the display will light.
