Yup. Was on a long walk today and paused the workout while I ate lunch. Came to unpause it and saw the Apple logo! Often I’ll look at the watch and it’s locked, then will unlock and it says ‘Loading’. Series 3 GPS. Dev beta 1 was trouble free, this only started after installing beta 2. Unpaired, reset, repaired, it still does it. Can’t wait for beta 3!

In the middle of several books.

I think beta 3 will drop tomorrow.

Mine did not start doing it until I opened and read this thread.
Emptying browser cache to see if that stops it... 😀

I was getting the restarts, but things have settled down the past couple of days. B3 should be released shortly, hope that permanently fixes the issue. Been more of a nuisance than anything else.

Hopefully fixed in the next beta. Two nights I’ve woken up to the watch locked due to restarts and no sleep hours tracked because of it.

I hadn’t experienced any restarts with beta 1 and 2 but beta 3 I am experiencing constant restarts/freezing

Updating to Beta 3 now, hoping it improves.
too early to be fully sure but mine is much more stable on beta 3. No restarts overnight or today, and tracked a walk earlier with no issues. I’ll update this thread.

Unpaired my watch and setup as new, seems to be OK now. Did notice a restart after enabling hand wash detection so have disabled for now.

I had a reboot again today. Updated to b3 yesterday. iPhone 11 ProMax, Apple Watch Series 3 LTE.
May be it was a one-off thing? I'll repot if it keeps up.

One reboot today for me, first one since beta 3. Seems to happen if I go outside and the watch/phone go out of range. Beta 1 didn’t do this at all!

Well, after almost two weeks of hardly any reboots, mine today has started doing rebooting many times again. It's gone from a reboot every 2/3 days to 4 so far today. Oddly, it seems most frequently to be when I leave the house, and I've been in and out of the house a few times today, so potentially related to wifi? This has happened in two different houses, one with Ubiquiti APs and one with an ISP supplied Fritzbox.

I did have one random reboot out on a walk though, in the middle of nowhere with no Wifi, and my phone with me.

Roll on beta 4! iOS 14 however seems rock solid on the phone. Good job, as I can't downgrade it without losing the watch functionality. All part of using the dev beta though...
