    Hello everyone! I just received my new Apple Watch (42mm nike+) last Saturday. So far so good except for the random reboot where apple logo will appear and it looks like the watch is restarting. After a few seconds, it will go back to normal. This random reboot happened everyday and yesterday I tried to do a reset/erase all content and this morning I still experienced another reboot.

    Is this normal or should I just return it and get a replacement? Thank you.

    Does not sound normal to me.. Mine has not rebooted on it's own, ever.... I have the SS Space Black version though..

    If you've done a reset on it and it's still happening then I'd send it back...

    I have the Nike+ edition as well and it happens to me once in awhile. I wouldn't say that it happens alot, but it has probably happened half a dozen times in the past few since I have had it and it always happens and the worst times

    Happened to me as well with my Nike watch. I unpaired then reset the watch and repaired. Haven't seen it happen since.

    i already did the reset one time yesterday and still experienced it this morning. i just unpaired it right now and will reset the watch. i will give it 1-2 days and will see if it will happen again. if it does, i will just return it and keep my 2nd unit.

    I've had my Nike+ 42mm for 4 days and it restarted after I was swiping through the watch faces rather quickly. I figured it was just swiping a bit too quickly for transitioning faces. I have only had it happen this one time.

    Also, to all - is it happening while in use or is it just a random "I look down and see my watch restarting?"

    edit:a word

    1st incident was while i was checking all the faces/swiping.

    the rest were just when i received notification and about to check the watch and logo apple just showed up.

    I have the Nike+ watch and have had it happen probably 6 times since I got the watch back in November. It always seems to happen after I finish a workout or something. I will look down to stop the workout and the Apple logo is up.

    I have had it happen on the Series 0 watch as well, even my S2 does it. It's rare but annoying, it's most likely a buggy OS. When it does spontaneously reboot it's not a full reboot but quick one that takes be back to the home screen quickly.

    My Series 0 watch may have rebooted itself maybe under 5 times since launch day, the S2 has done it 3 times in under a month, it usually happens as if I get a notification but has done it while using an app (Apples own apps).

    Similar thing happens again very rarely with my 7+ (same issue my 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S, 6, 6S had) when the springboard crashes (none have never been jail broken).

    I'm 99.99% confident it's just Apples buggy OS, their OS's seem to get more buggy as time goes on.

    My sport series 2 reboots on average once a day since I've gotten it on release date...

    I think there will be an Watch OS update released for this soon. My series series 0 used to do the same thing. I was one of the lucky ones who was able to install Watch OS 3.1.1 without it bricking my Watch before Apple pulled the update and after installing that, I've seen no random reboots or resprings.
