My Apple Watch series 2 updates overnight and now the heart rate monitor doesn’t work. Anyone else? I restarted the watch but it didn’t help.

It is working alright for me, however I did notice that the 30 second countdown began well before I placed my finger on the crown - that’s new for me (yes it went back up to 30 seconds once it detected my finger on the crown.)

I have a series 4 on 6.2 and the ECG app works, as well as the other heart monitor apps I have (Cardiogram, Pulse 24, Heartwatch)

This is a problem I was having with a series 2. After restarting the watch 3 times is finally started to work.
