    I bought an 42" aluminum cellular Apple Watch yesterday.

    I paired my watch and phone, set up AT&T cellular. I went outside and tested it immediately. Great signal. I used it last night and this morning. Worked great.

    Today I updated to 4.0.1, now I can't get a cell signal at all. On the Explorer face, you can see that it's looking for a signal, but never gets one.

    I rebooted both the watch and the phone, unpaired and paired them back. I've been trying for the past 4 hours, but no signal. I might have to call AT&T to see what's wrong after a software update.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Try swiping up to get your "settings," turn the cellular connection off, wait 10 seconds or so, turn it back on.

    I've done exactly that about 5 times. Nothing.

    When you go to the Explorer face, it shows that it's trying to get a signal by the green dots opening and closing. The signal is never achieved.

    I think it's an AT&T thing, not a watch thing.

    Solved. I reset the watch, then unpaired and re-paired to the iPhone.

    Cell signal now works again.
