    Help, my watch is totally bricked after updating to 2.0. Screen freezes the minute I touch it, and I need to force restart it (holding down the two buttons) over and over again

    Are you able to unpair and re-pair from the companion app?

    People love to literally misuse the word 'Bricked' almost as much as the word literally.:rolleyes:

    OP, if your :apple:Watch is bricked then you will have to have it replaced. If you get it working then it was NOT bricked. You can't turn a 'brick' into a watch.:eek:

    Mine finished the update, or so I thought. I entered the lock code and the update then seemed to continue again with the progress circle. After that finished the watch wouldn't do anything, black screen. I did a force reboot and it came back to the lock screen again. Entered the code and it's going through the install screen again!!!

    If a device is bricked there is NO possible way anyone can help other than to say it needs to be serviced or replaced. I said that in my post so it covers any bricked situation. ;)

    OK, After three reboots and what seems like three repeats of the update the display shows the clock.
