    So I updated my watch to the 2.01 update this morning. No problems all day until about 7 PM tonight. Now I have to to unlock the watch every time I raise my wrist, like now its not sensing my wrist.

    Is there some correlation between this and the update, or has the sensor fried in the watch?

    I have rebooted the watch and the phone. Anything else I can try?

    I have had the watch since Mid May with no issue.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, something interesting. Since someone mentioned the heart rate monitor I decided to go there and see if it worked. It did work and now my watch is back to normal, for the time being.

    Well it's happening again. Always locked up when I look at it. The heart rate monitor idea worked for about 10 minutes but doesn't last anymore. Is it time for a Apple Store visit or do I have another option?

    I just re-paired it. Same issue with lock screen. Heart monitor was acting screwy at first.

    Try wiping the watch and starting as new. I think I'm going to do the same thing. I have issues where installed app icons don't display (just generic icons) and Apple Pay is acting screwy. May just wipe and start fresh, especially since there's little info stored on the watch itself (I personally aren't too concerned about any fitness data being lost).

    I did that when I re-paired it. No good.

    sounds like the sensor may be screwed up. If you have AppleCare on the watch call Apple and demand a 2 day replacement.

    No AppleCare. Chatted with a few Apple techs. Did another "new" reset to test that. Still not working.

    make a genius appointment and take it in. They have to replace it on warranty but you may be without your watch for a week.

    Appointment is tomorrow. The Apple specialist who was helpful via Chat on Monday did not return my call or email from yesterday, so I made my own appointment. Disappointed with that.

    Picked up new watch today. Repair depot didn't take long determining mine was bad.
