    Then - you may need to un-pair/re-pair your phone and watch... and maybe even do a reset of all settings on the watch before re-pairing.

    Force restart your Apple Watch

    You should force restart your device as a last resort and only if it's not responding. To force restart your Apple Watch, press and hold both the side button and Digital Crown for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo.

    Are you anywhere near an Apple store? When I had my iPad lock up, they were able to reset it for me.

    Before you go to the Apple store, call Apple first. The last few times I had to go in the wait was over 4 hrs. I ended up coming in the following morning prior to them opening. I still had to wait for an hour before I was helped. sometimes the Phone or Chat can be just as helpful for a lot less of your time. It's a thought!

    Definitely a good idea to call Apple first if you haven't already. I called Apple for my iPad and they said it needed to be reset and recommended making a appointment at an Apple Store. That's what I did and I was in and out in less than 15 minutes. Making an appointment is key. I'm lucky that I have 3 Stores within 30 minutes of me. The OP might not be so lucky...

    When I tried to make the appt I was told first available was in 6 days. Thats when I was told to show up in the AM before they open. There are always options but the phone call is the best start.

    That's not fair! The closest store to me is 80 miles. The metro area here is close to 100,000 people. Seems 1 store could locate here.

    If you can get the person that sent the message bug to send another message (besides the bug) it should help fix it. All they need to put is hi for example. If you are able to get to pictures, send a picture using the share button to the person that sent the bug message. I had this happen to my phone and sent a picture to the person that sent it, and it fixed the problem.

    I have 18,000 people in the small 1.25 square mile town where I live. Bergen County, NJ has around 925,000 people and we are within a stones throw of NY City which I didn't include. There are 5 in Manhattan and 1 in Yonkers. So 9 stores with-in 40 miles to service 20+ million people...

    Apologies to the Original Poster for derailing his thread...
