    While the side button is very clicky on my Series 2 watch, the digital crown has a dull, soft click to it that feels like it's blocked. Is this normal? I've washed it in warm water, and digged out gunk from underneath the crown with the edge of a piece of paper, and it rotates very smoothly.

    Twice I have had to wash my AW2 under warm water due to the crown getting gummed up. Works great

    Apple actually recommends you rinse the Digital Crown under water to remove an debris, while rotating the crown.

    I did so, several times. I've clicked and clicked. It works, sure, but it has a very solid dissatisfying "thud" to it when pressing it.
