As a first generation device, the Apple Watch is far from being the perfect computer on your wrist. Like most computers, Apple's smartwatch has the capability of crashing, freezing and a bevy of other problems. So what can you do when your Apple Watch becomes unresponsive?

Just like the iPhone, Apple added a way to hard reset the Watch in a similar manner. If your Apple Watch freezes for any reason, simply hold down the Digital Crown and sleep button for about 10 seconds. The screen will go dark after about 5 seconds, but keep holding until the Apple logo appears on the screen.

After the aforementioned process, the Apple Watch should be completely rebooted and hopefully won't cause any other problems. Like we said before, it's a first generation device, Apple is still collecting feedback from Apple Watch owners to fix any overlooked issues.
