Apple watch series 4. Just updated to 5.1. Checked the settings and it’s on...but doesn’t work. It will work if I reset the watch, but then stops working after about 5 minutes. Anyone else having this problem?

Working ok for me with 5.1. I just checked it on the charger next to me.

Strangely enough it’s working now. It started working about 20 minutes after I posted this, and worked every time I used it last night after. But when I made the post it wouldn’t work. I was rocking the table pretty good and it still wouldn’t work. Must of been a glitch.

Our two watches did the same thing. Nightstand mode was not working properly last night after the update, but seemed to be ok this morning. Strange.

Just to update...even though it came back for me last night and was working, it’s not working tonight.

Series 4 watch. Sometimes nightstand mode works, sometimes it does not. Worked fine before the latest watch os update ?

Houston (duh)
I came searching for a thread like this because I just now updated to 5.1 and mine doesn't work. If I type the watch face, it will light up, but it doesn't if I bump it... even really hard. I loved how sensitive it was before, but now it's not just less sensitive, it doesn't work at all unless I touch the watch face... Ugh.

I literally updated like 15 minutes ago, so hoping it comes back like it did for some of you.

Mine still only works half of the time
