Some owners of the Apple Watch Series 3 have complained about the update to watchOS 7 causing crashes and shutdowns, in what could be early teething issues for the operating system.

The launch of a new operating system or a milestone version update usually brings with it some initial problems, which are usually fixed in initial patches and updates post-launch. For watchOS 7, it seems that the Apple Watch Series 3 is suffering the lion's share of issues.

In a thread in Apple's support forums, a group of Series 3 owners are griping about stability issues with watchOS 7 on their devices, endured since the update's installation. Common complaints include unprompted crashes and reboots, as well as battery drainage problems.

One user on September 18 reported by 9to5Mac said their Apple Watch "shut itself down at least 3 times, locked itself while on my wrist 4 times, failed to load complications on multiple faces," and disconnected from the iPhone at least twice, all in one day. The same user also observed the battery capacity was down to 50% capacity after around 8 hours, far lower than the usual 80% level they previously saw.

Other users mention being forced to reset the Apple Watch to get watchOS to install, repeated restarts and slow complication reloads following reboots. Some also reported delays in weather updates and a need to re-enter their passcode while they are still wearing the Apple Watch.
