Apple Watch daylight saving bug leaves Series 4 devices in a loop

Apple Watch Series 4 bootloops due to Daylight Savings Time

Only wearables that had the Infograph Modular face active experienced the reboot loop.

Daylight saving time is hard to understand at the best of times, and it would appear the Apple Watch Series 4 is struggling to get a grip on it - specifically, one of the complications on the new Infograph faces doesn't seem to like having to shift forwards by an hour.

In a typical day, there are obviously 24 hours.

Whilst the root cause of the error is yet to be explained, commentators claim the watch's Activity complication could not re-calibrate its 24 hour graph, with an hour missing. Every time the device boots, it tries to load the complications again, fails and restarts. 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. Currently Apple hasn't commented on the issue, but some users have been able to work around the bug by changing the watch face via the Watch iOS app.

Vikas Bahl Accuses Anurag Kashyap, Motwane of Defamation
Later Vikas acted of passing out there, and when the accuser woke up she found out that the Queen director was masturbating on her.

It is not clear when "Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4" would hit the Indian market. It is believed that a 23-hour day where the clocks roll back to save daylight have caused the Watch S4 to shutdown, continuously rebooting until it makes sense of the situation. Leaving it on the charger could also cause problems for the watch's long-term battery health, experts said.

Are Complications only limited to the Larger Activity area?

Apple will likely issue a software update to fix the problem, but it's unknown whether it will be in place before more scheduled time changes.
