The stickiness of Digital Crown may have been caused by dust or debris which might have got into it. Here is the possible solution that can help you resolve this issue.

How to Fix Sticky Digital Crown on Apple Watch

Step 1: First off, you need to power off your Watch and remove it from the charger. If the watch has the leather band, make sure to remove it.

Step 2: Up next, simply hold the Apple Watch under the fresh, warm, lightly running water for up to 10- 20 seconds.

Step 3: Turn and press Digital Crown continuously for some time and let the water run over the small gap that exists between the crown and the housing.

Step 4: Now, clean the Apple Watch with a non-abrasive, lint-free cleaning cloth.

That’s it! Digital Crown should start functioning as usual.

Some users have reported that even though they are able to rotate the Digital Crown, their Apple Watch doesn’t respond. If you have also experienced this issue on your watch, then you can comfortably resolve it by Restart Apple Watch.

Just in case, you are unable to turn off your Apple Watch or if it is completely unresponsive, then you need to force restart as the last resort. To do so, simply hold the side button and Digital Crown at once.
