    I have a series 2, and a while back it started to trigger Siri or the app screen constantly. It got so bad that I had to turn off the watch since it was unusable.

    I tried Apple’s recommendations with cleaning, etc.. didn’t work. I spoke to tech support and they want $229 for their service fee. But they can’t tell me if that’s the actual price, or if the repair will end up being less or more than that. But $229 is absurd and pointless... I might as well get a new watch.

    Has anyone gotten their watch crown fixed out of warranty?? Curious what happens. Really annoyed that my watch is just sitting in my desk.

    Apple store would not do this repair and they would have to send it to the service center. They likely will just replace your S2 with a refurbished one. I do not feel the cost of $229 is worth it and if you really like and depend on your Apple Watch, it is time for a new one.

    If the issue cannot be remedied through a hard reset or powering the watch on/off, then your only option would be to have a Apple look at it. Obviously you’re not willing to pay the repair fee, therefore I would just move onto a different Apple Watch as it stands.
