Apple Watch “wrist detection” issue?
I’ve had an Apple watch series 2 since they first came out but over the last few months Ive been having a real bad issue with it.
The wrist detection seems broken. Whenever I wake it to change a song, I have to input my pin. And then as soon as I put my wrist down, it will relock. Every time!
Prior to this, the only issue I’ve had was that the screen would sleep while I was tapping to navigate around the device as if it was idle (while receiving tapping input!)
Yes, I have arm tattoos but it’s never been the source of an issue prior. I’ve verified the settings and still doesn’t work as expected.
Anything i should try? I’m ready to throw it away.
Cleaning the sensors didnt fix the issue.
I also had been having problems with the digital crown’s responsiveness, so I used the warm water to clean that as well.
The digital crown is much more responsive now, and the wrist detection issues have gone away.
So I’m guessing there may have been some dirt causing the digital crown to possible register being pressed, which caused the locking?
