    This morning, almost every time I looked at my watch, it showed that it was locked, requiring me to put in my passcode or unlock with phone. I figured it probably just got some dirt on the sensor, as I was outside at a baseball game this morning. I got home, cleaned it with a damp paper towel, and started wearing it. All was fine for about 4 hours, and it started doing it again. Any thoughts?

    How loose is the band? There needs to be constant skin contact with the sensors or it'll lock.

    As tight as I can get it without it being uncomfortable. Somewhat loose, but I've had it since May 7th, and today was first time with any issues, wearing same tightness

    I have exactly the same issue..... I’ve my Apple Watch since launch and only now has it started asking for a passcode every time. Tried cleaning and then resetting, still doing the same. Any ideas?
