Some users are reporting a series of spontaneous restarts in hospitals. Most of those affected are working in intensive care areas. It seems that it would only be affecting the Apple Watch Series 3 on a larger scale.
Both WiFi and LTE versions would be affected by this problem, spontaneous restarts that repeat every 30 and 60 minutes or so . When diagnostics are performed on devices at an Apple Retail Store, they do not present a problem.
Apple provides a manual warning of possible interference from medical equipment in the Apple Watch, but there is no official information on this type of restart yet.
It appears that this problem is most prevalent in the intensive care areas , where the Apple Watch Series 3 would be experiencing a performance issue. Preventing professionals and users from making normal use of the device.
In Apple’s official discussion section, those affected began reporting this problem in early December. On some occasions, Apple has replaced the watch completely, suffering the same fate when it comes to visiting a hospital again.
Some users comment that has not had this problem with previous models , so it would only be affecting models with GPS, both the Series 2 (to a lesser extent) and the Apple Watch Series 3 in the WiFi and LTE version.
Perhaps a software update will solve this problem, but we’ll have to wait and see if Apple can provide a solution to this issue before we can continue to use the Apple Watch in hospitals.
At the moment, the only solution they offer from Apple, is to use the smart clock in plane mode , where it has been discovered that it is the only way to be able to continue using the clock without it restarting from time to time. Logically, all the functionality of the Apple Watch is lost here.
Have you ever had a problem with your watch in a hospital?
