Share This:

If you’re an Apple Watch user, chances are you’ve had to reset the face of your watch at least once. Resetting the face of your Apple Watch can be a bit tricky, but don’t worry! We’ve got you covered on how to get it done.

First, open the Settings app on your Apple Watch. You should see a general tab that includes a “Return to Clock” option. Scroll down and choose between Always, After 2 minutes, or After 1 hour for when you want your watch face to reset back to its normal display.

Once you have made your selection, press the Digital Crown twice to return to the clock face. You can now enjoy your freshly reset watch face!

However, if you are having trouble getting the watch face to update or sync properly, there could be several causes for this issue. It could be that your hands are dirty, wet, or sticky; that you’re wearing gloves that aren’t touchscreen friendly; or that your screen protector or case isn’t compatible with your device. If these potential issues don’t seem to solve the problem, try closing the Watch app on your iPhone by double-clicking the Home button and then swiping up on the Watch app preview. Furthermore, try turning off both devices together and restarting only your iPhone first before restarting your Apple Watch again.

We hope this guide has helped make resetting the face of your Apple Watch easier for you! If you have any other questions about setting up and using an Apple Watch feel free to contact us at our website and we will be happy to help out!

Fixing an Apple Watch Face That Is Not Changing

If your Apple Watch face isn’t changing, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue. First, make sure that you have installed the latest version of watchOS. You can update watchOS by opening the Watch app on your iPhone, tapping General > Software Update, and following the on-screen instructions.

If you’re still having issues with the watch face not changing, you can try closing the Watch app on your iPhone by double-clicking the Home button, then swiping up on the Watch app preview. Then turn both devices off together, restarting your iPhone first. After restarting both devices, open the Watch app again and see if that helps resolve any issues with your Apple Watch face not changing.

Troubleshooting Issues with Apple Watch Faces

Your Apple Watch face might not be working for any number of reasons. The most common issue is a dirty, oily, wet, or sticky screen that is preventing the Apple Watch from responding to your touch. Additionally, your gloves may not be compatible with the touchscreen which could be causing the issue. Finally, make sure that your screen protector or case is compatible with your device and check to see if it’s blocking any of the sensors on the Apple Watch. If none of these steps resolves the issue, you should contact Apple Support for further assistance.

Unexpected Change in Apple Watch Face

The Apple Watch allows you to quickly and easily change your watch face by swiping from the left or right edge of the screen. Therefore, if you accidentally swipe from either of those edges, your watch face will automatically switch to a different one. This is a feature of the device that can be adjusted in the settings menu, so you can choose whether or not this happens when you swipe from the edges of the screen.

Swipe left or right to browse through the different designs, then tap on one of them to select it as your new watch face.
