Troubleshooting Your Apple Watch: Overheating, Rebooting Issues and More

troubleshooting Apple Watch issues and display

Apple Watches are great devices. They can be worn all day and give you notifications not to miss anything important, but they also have drawbacks. For instance, some Apple Watches overheat when they are in use for too long or update issues that require a hard reset to fix. We will go into detail about how to troubleshoot your Apple Watch with these types of problems below.

Apple Watch overheating


When you wear your Apple Watch all day long, it can become hot to the touch. This is normal in some cases because of being in direct sunlight or working out while wearing it, but if the heat becomes too much, then there’s probably a problem with your watch internals. If this happens when using apps that aren’t known for causing a lot of heat, then the first thing you might want to do is restart your watch.

If that doesn’t work and the watch still overheats on using for longer periods, there may be something wrong with the sensors or hardware inside. In this case, one option would be to bring your Apple Watch to us for repairs.

Apple Watch charging issues

Your Apple Watch may face charging issues if you try to charge it while wearing it or plugging in the charger at an odd angle. In some cases, this can be due to a faulty charging cable, so make sure that you are using the correct one from Apple and if not, then replace your cable with a new one.

If that doesn’t work, there may be a problem with the charging port on your Apple Watch, but if it is still under warranty, you can take it to the official Apple service center.

Apple Watch won’t update

If you try updating your Apple Watch and the screen goes black or fails to do anything, there may be a problem with the software that needs to be fixed by deleting the latest software file or a reset. Do a normal restart and try updating the software again. If that doesn’t work, access the Watch app on your iPhone and navigate to My Watch Tab>General>Users>Software Update. Deleting the software update file and downloading it again may fix the problem. Also, it is recommended to plug in the charger to your watch during the update.

Apple Watch pairing issues with iPhone

If your Apple Watch is having pairing issues with your iPhone, ensure that you are running the latest software on both devices. If this doesn’t work, try unpairing both devices from each other and then pair them again, which will also fix many problems. Also, check for any third-party apps that may be causing interference between the iPhone and the watch.

Apple Watch screen display issues

If your Apple Watch screen isn’t working correctly, there could be a problem with the display, so you should do a hard reset on it by pressing and holding down both buttons for at least ten seconds. If that doesn’t work, try plugging in the charger to see if the screen lights up. Sometimes, the screen might even pop out of the casing due to battery bloating. In that case, quickly bring it to Breakfixnow to get it repaired before additional damage is done to the Apple Watch.
