Yesterday the UI died in the middle of the day. One glance showed me my overlapping activity rings (we are travelling and doing a lot of hiking,) the next moment it is black with a faint stripe of white. Haptics and audio contInue and there is no error indication on the iPhone.
I have reset the watch (cold boot,) but that does not change anything. This is an Apple Watch 3 with LTE, but LTE does not work outside the US.
I am hesitant to unpair and reinstalll, because there is no way to enter the CODE to unlock and other folks posting about this indicated this would be a waste of time. I just got the notice about the latest beta (I am on the earlier one,) but am hesitant to muck with it in this condition.
I am out of the country and will be for a while longer - leaving it with Apple here is not practical and I do not want to waste vacation time.
Any advice? Has anybody recovered from this without Apple’s help?
Tried updating to the latest beta, but the download to the watch does not progress.
