So, the Apple Watch Series 4 is a pretty attractive piece of hardware. "The watch was stuck on a reboot loop and would not charge up or restart", complained one Reddit user.

Apple seems to work their way up to provide the software update and remove the bugs from the remaining countries who have DST around the corner. The bug is being said to affect those living in Australia. In the US, the Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4 is priced between $399 and $499, while additional bands can be bought for $49 each. The maximum complaints are reported from Australia, where people have experienced the issue when they change in daylight saving time. However, out of 24 hours, the particular watch face is reportedly not registering an hour or so worth of activities.

The issue is primarily with the activity complication, which tracks data on calories burned, exercise time and more in a 24-hour period. Apple definitely spent the past 3 generations continuously learning what exactly it wants to do with this gadget, and the Series 4 is a nice culmination of that effort. Some users also managed to fix the crash and reboot by removing the Infograph Modular face using Apple's companion Watch app.

This was the reason for the failure of Apple Watch Series 4.

Google Now Makes Its Own Home-Branded Smart Display
The Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3XL go on sale in the USA starting October 19 and will be available in more markets on November 1. The first news about the Google Pixel Watch came from reliable technology leaker Evan Blass and a "reliable source" of his.

Putting it back on the charger as it will just continue to drain its battery and reboot.

As of now, it is not clear if the smaller activity complications are causing the issue. If not, the problem should go away by itself tomorrow.

"I removed the Infograph faces through the app and did a hard reset and my watch came good".

It seems likely that Apple will need to patch this issue before daylight saving time ends in Europe on Sunday, Oct. 28 and in the United States on Sunday, Nov. 4.
