    So after i updated the watch to the latest os, luckily it didn't break my watch, but i went swimming today and now the speaker noise when ejecting the water is very quiet. Its not water in the speaker as all other sounds are loud. its as if the volume on the eject speaker noise has been turned down low. can anyone help on this or is experiencing the same? it used to be quite loud...

    I kid I kid. I'm not sure hopefully you get it sorted out!

    i had the same experience this morning. i felt like the minnie mouse voice was quiet too... however there didn't seem to be much water in the speaker after my shower despite multiple ejection attempts. i rebooted the watch but then got busy and forgot to test it again until now... i just tested it and the sounds are back to normal

    Thank you for that, i just tested the water evacuation noise and it was still quiet. So i just rebooted the watch, tested again and the noise is now twice as loud and back to full strength! :) Suspect this is a bug so hopefully this fix will easily be found if others have it too.

    First of all, I'm sorry to dig out this old thread!

    I have my watch since a week and I noticed the same issue. After my workout in the gym, I take a shower and afterwards the sound of the ejecting process is so quite, I can't even hear it. After rebooting the Watch, everything is normal and the ejecting sound is working again.

    @alexb2008 How did you fix this issue?

    I have not found too many issues of this being reported. You mentioned you had it a week, I would make an appointment With Apple and explain your situation, and see what they suggest.

    I've found that if I go to the Music app and force quit it (hold the power button until the menu comes up and then hold the digital crown until the home screen shows up), the ejecting volume goes back to normal! I go through doing this after every workout now.

    Interesting remedy. My question would be what's causing the motor to be quiet at times and other times where it's audibly loud? It must not be any type of issue, because it seems to be prevalent for other Watch users. When I researched the topic on the Internet, I could not find any other discussions based on this.

    It kind of reminds me of a problem I've had on my iPhone before. Sometimes, an app running in the background will turn down the volume of all my alerts (I don't think this is by design...). Once I close that app, my alert volume goes back to normal. I agree though, it can't be THAT widespread or it would've been more talked about.

    So odd but it actually works! Thanks!

    Ya it’s probably just a software oversight
