Last night my series 3 stainless steel reset to Apple logo while playing music from a playlist during my workout. It came back to my watch face with 34% battery in the battery field, (lower by far than my watch ever gets). After several reset cycles (battery reading vastly different each time), I forced a power off. When it came back up, same problem still. Did a "hard reset"...same problem. I tried to erase contents and settings, it asked for my 4 digit code, and the wouldn't execute the erasure. Finally unpaired from my iphone X, now it charges fine, gets the green ring with bolt in the middle, and goes to the "pair nearby iphone" screen. After 20+ tries both using camera to pair and manual with watch supplying code, I have gotten a "paired" notice every time, and have made it as far as entering a 4 digit code for watch security...but each time the watch eventually goes to the Apple logo, breaks the pairing process and restarts. The iphone soon follows suit, and exits the process. I have a genius bar appt later today, but the chat session rep said it was going to be a $289 flat repair fee. 1) my original Apple watch stainless steel is still operating 4.5 years later, 2) if I was replaing a $289 watch after just 1.25 years, I would have bought the sport for $350 and not worried about case durability, 3) why would someone pay against a meticulously cared for watch for what is clearly a software issue? Is anyone else suddenly having any issues like this?
