Just got home and began setting up my new Apple Watch. All is well for a minute or so.

Until I try to pull up a contact. I tap onto my wife's icon, and the Watch reboots. I figured maybe a little glitch, so I did a hard reboot. Same thing!

Now I am erasing all content and starting the pairing process from the beginning.

Wish me luck.

My roommate had his 38mm blue sport replaced at the local Apple store after speaking with support and booking an appointment. His was for the vibration not working though.

Thats the perfect excuse on why you aren't calling her or answering her messages. Sounds like a blessing to me!! Haha! I'm just kidding and I hope you get it fixed.

How do I add another? I added people to my favorites on my phone, but only my wife shows up on the watch

That's probably part of the issue, then. It's my understanding all favorites should show up there. I'd suggest removing your wife from the favorites, temporarily. Then see what happens.

I figured it out! I deleted my wife (that doesn't sound right), then re-added her with less info. This solved the crashing.

BUT - something is still obviously an issue within certain contacts. Hopefully Apple will fix in an update.
