Apple Watch Sticky Digital Crown

admin 00:54
Has anyone else's digital crown developed a stickiness/stiffness?

Mine was fine for the first 4 days and turned really freely, however today it has developed a bit of resistance when turning it.

For example, if the Digital Crown isn't turning smoothly or your Apple Watch isn't responding to a button press, follow these steps.

Check for debris and wipe down your Apple Watch

If the Digital Crown gets stuck or won’t move, it might be because of dirt or debris. If you find substances like dust or lotion around the Digital Crown, follow these steps to clean, and repeat as needed:
  1. Turn off your Apple Watch and remove it from the charger.
  2. If you have a leather band, remove it from your Apple Watch.
  3. Hold the Digital Crown under lightly running, warm, fresh water from a faucet for 10 to 15 seconds.Soaps and other cleaning products shouldn't be used.
  4. Continuously turn and press the Digital Crown as water runs over the small gap between the crown and the housing.  
  5. Dry your Apple Watch with a non-abrasive, lint-free cleaning cloth.

If you can press and rotate the crown, but your Apple Watch doesn’t respond

  • Turn off your Apple Watch and turn it back on.
  • If you can’t turn off the device, or if your Apple Watch isn’t responding, then you can force restart the devices as a last resort: Press and hold both the side button and Digital Crown for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple Logo.
  • If the issue still isn’t resolved, get more help.
