    Default Wrist detection not working?

    Few days ago, with low battery, I noticed when I spin the wrist, the Watch dont turn on the screen, the same problem when I take off from my wrist.
    I made a hard reset, but still have the problem.

    To see the screen, I need press the button.

    Any help?

    Default Re: Wrist detection not working?

    My wrist turn has NEVER worked 100% It's a somewhat wonky feature. I have to REALLY flick my wrist to get it to work for sure, although sometimes it works GREAT. Other times it just won't work, unless I REALLY snap my wrist.

    Default Re: Wrist detection not working?

    In watchOS 1, wrist detection worked perfectly. I only had to turn my wrist slightly, less than 45 and the screen turned on. It seems to take a little more than that since wOS 2. But it still works as it should. If you keep your wrist at certain angles, the Watch won't display as it should, all the time. But that goes away.

    Try un-pairing and re-paring you Watch and see if that helps. If not, try another hard reset, after re-pairing.
