Hard Reset Your Apple Watch

Most of the time when your Apple Watch is stuck on the Apple logo, its software crashed while turning on and your Apple Watch is frozen. We can reboot a frozen Apple Watch by performing a hard reset, which forces your Apple Watch to abruptly turn off and back on.

To hard reset your Apple Watch, simultaneously press and hold the Digital Crown and the Side button. Release both buttons when the Apple logo appears in the center of the Apple Watch face.

Note: You may have to hold both buttons for 15-30 seconds before the Apple logo appears. After hard reseting your Apple Watch, you may have to wait a few minutes before it turns back on.

If the hard reset fixed your Apple Watch, that’s great! However, it’s important for you to know that a hard reset is almost always a temporary fix. When your Apple watch gets stuck on the Apple logo or freezes in general, there’s usually a deeper software issue causing the problem.

You could just hard reset your Apple Watch every time it freezes on the Apple logo, but we want to show you how to fix this problem so it doesn’t come back!

Ring Apple Watch Via Your iPhone

Go to Apple Watch and click on your Watch name. Next, click on the Find my Apple Watch and click on Play Sound.

This will make your Watch ring. Once you enter the system, go through the below solutions to permanently fix the Apple Watch stuck on the Apple logo problem.

The VoiceOver mode in Apple Watches is for a visually impaired person. When it is enabled, the screen turns black after loading beyond the Apple logo, and all you can hear is the voice. So, if you have accidentally turned it on, you might see a blank screen on the Apple Watch and misinterpret the problem to be a stuck Apple Watch.

Turn Off Screen Curtain & VoiceOver Mode

If hard reset or ringing your Watch allowed you to access your Apple Watch, but the screen stays completely black, then follow the steps below to disable VoiceOver.

When the Apple Watch is On, ask Siri to disable VoiceOver. Siri will disable the VoiceOver for you and then your Watch will restart without any fuss. After this, you may see a normal screen on your Apple Watch.

If Siri cannot disable VoiceOver for you, then you can try doing it from your iPhone. Open the Watch app from your iPhone and then navigate to Accessibility. Click on VoiceOver, and then toggle the switch next to VoiceOver and Screen Curtain to disable it.

Try to reboot your Apple Watch and check if this solution resolves your issue.
