If you are using any other Apple devices, we would suggest turning off their Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. This should most probably resolve the issue. But if it does not, we have other solutions as well.

Just Tap, and Not Force Touch

Tap and force touch are two different things. So when you receive a call, or when you are trying to make a call, simply tap it and not to press it. As one of the users on forum was pressing it with force, which was analyzed as force touch by the system. So instead of receiving or making a call, you might actually force touching it. Just give a try by tapping it normally and issue might be resolved. If it’s still not solved, there is one ultimate fix given below.

Reset your Apple Watch
