    Hello everybody,

    I am sorry if there are any mistakes in the text. My native language is not English.

    I 've got a problem with covering the Apple Watch with my hand during an incoming phone call to switch it to silent mode. This gesture works fine for notifications...I get an Feedback from the Taptic Engine after 3 sec. but it doesn't work with phone calls. I put my hand on the screen and the apple logo appears for 6 seconds...then there is the watch face again. It seems like a software crash during the gesture.

    I don't know if the problem has occured before 1.01. I didn't test it before...

    Do you have the same problem?

    I did an reset but nothing has changed.

    Thank you for your help.

    This definitely did not happen before 1.0.1, I just had it happen today morning, and was wondering why the Apple logo came up. Another call today afternoon, silenced the same way, crash again.

    So it does really seem like a bug. :(

    I have got the same problem. Apple Care Hotline doesn't have a solution. Resetting the watch didn't work for me. Any ideas?

    This update seems to have produced several bugs. In another thread they were talking about the heart rate monitor not measuring every ten minutes like before. I'm not updating for awhile.

    Same problem. Also, can't put the display to sleep by covering it with my hand. This seems to only affect a few people. For others, it continues to work.

    Good to hear that....I thought it could be a hardware problem.

    First time the call came and I covered the display I got the "Apple logo crash" although the call was then muted.

    When it happened a second time and I covered the display the logo crash didn't happen, it did mute the call AND put the Watch settings on mute.

    Anyone else see this same behavior?

    Thank you for your replies. It's good to read, that it doesn't seem like a hardware problem because of many people having this problem.

    In my case, it works sometimes but most of the time it does not.

    The gesture works properly with notifications. Phone Calls are the only problem with it.

    @jk4lebron23: Thanks for the compliment, I do my best! :)
