Vastly, Apple Watch is fast and responsive. But occasionally, you might experience a little bit lag. This could be due to software problems or a misbehaving app which can cause lag. Nonetheless, a restart or force restart should fix most issues.

Follow these simple steps to restart your apple watch.

  1. To restart your watch press and hold the side button until you see the Power Off slider.
  2. Drag the Power Off slider.
  3. After your watch turns off, press and hold the side button again until you see the Apple logo.

NB: Don not go ahead with this process if your watch is on charge. Take it off the charger first. Don’t force restart your Apple Watch if you’re updating watchOS.
