    I have a Series 3 watch and it just stopped. It was working since I got the watch in Nov. What do I need to do? I rebooted it several times. turned the setting off and on, but still no go.

    Check to see if theater mode is on.
    Also, has the orientation been changed?

    That was it. I don't know how it got into theater mode, but it was.

    Thank you! I was extremely frustrated.

    Also, be wary of the Silent mode. That mode tends to activate randomly only if you put your phone on vibrate.

    Every time I get onto dry land after swimming, my watch's theatre mode is turned on. Usually takes me a few minutes to remember. Also, I even seem to miss the big orange button when scrolling past to expel water from the watch.

    The only time I have some inconsistency is raise to wake while in bed.

    Thats the only time I don’t wear my Apple Watch, is in bed and I’m not allowed to wear it with my Profession, because our policy/procedure prohibits being it’s Government related. Surprisingly, the times I see others wearing the Apple Watch, I pay attention to see if they have raise to wake enabled or disabled, and it seems many seem to have it disabled.

    I really like the feature. It comes in handy when running as well.

    Too bad the PD doesn't flip for an Apple Watch, as part of the uniform.

    Good point about the running, especially that you don’t want to have to tap the display or push a button when all you want to do is raise your wrist to see the time or other details when running.

    There are other officers who do wear the watch while working, but they know they’re not supposed to, but no one says anything to them about it. I would rather not chance that and I find myself bumping into things a lot more with just a regular watch I wear while working, which I’d rather not damage the Apple Watch, and I didn’t opt for Applecare.

    Thankfully us contractors (used to be a fed employee) don't have any restrictions where I work. :) But yeah, have a few coworkers who have a security clearance, they have to put their phone and watch in a box before entering the work place. That would take some getting used to.

    I find a lot of non AW3 users have it disabled for battery reasons. I've yet to meet an AW3 in the wild (that I've talked to).

    Whenever a forum member talks about seeing x product in the "wild," I start hearing David Attenborough's narrative voice.

    'While many have come to view the Apple Watch as ubiquitous in the concrete jungles of North America, it is rather hard to spot in the wild, without its majestic raise to wake feature proudly displaying its mechanical feathers for all to see in the early dew of the morning, or the amber dusk of the setting day.'

    Now I have to watch an episode of Planet Earth tonight. My wife is soon to be a PhD student in entomology this fall. Sir Attenburough is one of her favorite people ever. Haha! :)

    Edit: Wife laughed and said "YAS!", lol.

    I have been watching Blue Planet II. It has been a great series thus far. David is a wonderful icon and dare I say it, legend.

    Since your wife loves bugs, why hasn't she signed up with Apple to be a bug (beta) tester?
