    something has me stumped. I have rebooted watch and phone a few times but no luck. When I get a phone call my watch won't pop up so I can answer it. So I've been playing with it at home calling iPhone with landline but still nothing. When I hang up it pops up on the screen that I missed a call. I can click on friends and make call, go too phone icon on watch and make call but can't receive call. Am I missing something?

    Are you on T-Mobile with Wi-Fi Calls enabled? If so, that is the problem. The AW will not ring if you are in a WiFi network with the Wi-Fi Calls feature on. Try turning it off and then give it a test.

    I'm on Verizon. I just turned off wifi period. No change. After I hang up and wake up watch with a touch I get the missed call and the choices. I can call back and it works.

    Sounds buggy. You've already rebooted it to no avail. Try force restarting it (hold down the crown and side button until the Apple logo appears) and if it doesn't work, unpair and re-pair the Watch.

    That's the way I always reboot it.

    It's not necessary to do hard restart on a regular basis. Normal restarting is sufficient to fix many bugs.

    I see similar problems. My watch doesn't usually ring when I receive calls. I am on Tmobile Wifi here, maybe that is why in some cases. But it also seems to only work about 10-20% of the time outside of the wifi zone.
