Daylight saving time is reportedly causing Apple Watch Series 4 reboots

Apple Watch Series 4 bootloops due to Daylight Savings Time

Australia just moved to DST and advanced its clocks by an hour yesterday, and this appears to be causing issues with Apple's latest Series 4 Watch.

The "Activity" feature is responsible for sketching a timeline graph of the current day, showing hour-by-hour data for calories, exercise minutes and stand hours. We had daylight saving this morning at 2am where the clock was brought forward for an hour. However, out of 24 hours, the particular watch face is reportedly not registering an hour or so worth of activities. And, the users in Australia seem to be fine with the solution.

"I woke up this morning to a dead watch at 0% when it was at 70% last night before bed".

Even before stepping on the green pitch of Rajkot , the Men in Blue were heavily touted to thrash the travelling West Indies side. He added a further 23 runs for the unbeaten last wicket with Shami (2 not out).

As the watch gets stuck in a reboot loop, affected users can either wait it out until tomorrow when the bug should correct itself, or attempt to remove the complication from the Apple Watch app on the iPhone. Apple is likely working on a fix for this issue and will roll out an update to address it so locations yet to transition to DST won't face the same problem. The bug is causing endless loops on the Watch Series 4 as the device turns on, tries to load the Activity complication, encounters an error and restarts. Europe will move out of Daylight Saving Time by the end of this month, while in the U.S., DST ends on November 4. Although ECG feature is only available in the United States for now.

Until Apple provides any specific help, it would be recommended leaving the Watch alone and waiting it out.

The Apple Watch Series 4 comes with a 30% bigger display.
