AW Sport Randomly Restarting?

I have an Apple Watch Sport ("Series 0"), and a couple of times now this week I've glanced at my watch only to find it showing the white Apple logo, appearing to restart.

Since I don't monitor my watch constantly I'm not quite sure how often it happens, but I've seen it three times since the beginning of last week. It seems to take as long as a normal restart to get back to a working state, but from what I can recall the passcode isn't required to unlock it once it's on again? Seems to be the watch equivalent of a respring on an iPhone, just taking a lot longer.

Was just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and whether there were any quick fixes besides trying a full re-pair and re-sync to my phone?

My Series 2 restarted on its own about a week and a half ago. That's the first time it did it and it hasn't done it again since.
