Your watch won’t respond to taps or wrist gestures in two possible situations.

#1. If it has the low battery.

#2. If it is in Power Reserve mode.

  • In such a situation, press and hold on the side button of your Apple Watch. If you see only time on the watch screen, it means the watch is in Power Reserve mode.
  • To get it out of Power Reserve mode, press and hold on the side button for about ten seconds until you see Apple logo on the screen.
  • If you see a red icon next to the time, you need to charge your watch right away.
