    The Digital Crown on my Apple Watch has been sticking the last few days. It's no longer silky smooth when I turn it. Still works but I just notice a stick when trying to turn it. I use it daily for my runs and workouts so I do sweat on it but I wipe it dry after. Anyone else experience this with their watches?

    Nope. Still smooth on mine, thankfully...

    Mine does on occasion. Then I just drip water around the crown and clean around. It tends to work fine after that.

    Mine does this a lot, I do work work in dusty environments a lot though, usually just spinning it back and forth a few times fixes it for me. Occasionally I'll clean it with water.

    That happened to me from time to time. It's been back to being smooth for awhile now.

    Just a note to say that this works. Had some pretty severe sticking issues and since I followed the suggested fix it is back to buttery smooth.

    Mine did it from the time I first got it (new) last Fall. It would seem to catch and then work smoothly after that for a while, but after not being turned for a while it would stick once again. Upon reading this thread I realized that it hasn't come to my attention recently. Perhaps it "wore into place".

    I've never worn watches in the shower. Seems weird to me. To each his own.

    If you think that's odd my brother used to sleep with his watch on as well as shower, and this was long before the smartwatch let alone sleep tracking were even thought about!

    I've always slept with watches on. I think it's bc I'm blind as a bat and can't see the clock so need a watch an inch away from my face. But wearing anything in the shower is strange to me.

    Yeah, I don't shower with it on every day but I have just not wanted to fool with removing it. Depending on the band I'm wearing I'll just leave it on with no worries about getting it wet.

    Yeah I can't do that not with primarily using the leather loop band.

    No, I don't suppose that would work, haven't tried a leather band yet, may have to look into one.

    I can't even wear my wedding band in the shower.
