    I haven't used my watch in a month or so and now it won't turn on. All I get is a squiggly line with the charger circle on the watch face it just blinks on and off. It worked fine when I put it away. It was fully charged when I put it in the box. But like I said I haven't used it in a month or so and now it won't power up except for the squiggly line with the power charger circle. I don't know what to do now. Any ideas?

    thats usually the dead battery screen. leave it on the charger for awhile to see if it gets a charge. my wifes watch randomly got this error a few weeks ago and I couldn't get it to boot, even after leaving it on the charger for days. I brought it to apple and they sent it in for repair. they ended up sending me a new one through apple care. they were unable to recover the original.

    Try plugging it in for a while. Also maybe try a different outlet in your home? It could also be a faulty charging cable. I would also try doing a hard-reset by holding down both buttons for about 10 seconds until the watch reboots.

    It's been on the charger for over 24 hours now and all I can get it to do is flash on and off the squiggly line with the round charger picture. I will keep it on the charger till my appointment with the Apple Store. It has 3 weeks left on the factory warranty so they said if they can't fix it they will replace it. I think I see a new watch in my future based on some of the other comments related to this screen I am getting. Thank goodness it happened while still under warranty. Thanks for everyone's input.
