Apple Watch users reporting reboot issue in hospital environments

A new Apple Watch-related issue has come to light. Series 3 owners say their units are rebooting every 60 to 90 minutes when in vicinity of an ICU. There’s a dedicated forum thread related to this at Apple’s official forums, and it has been going on since October.

The issue – which affects both cellular and non-LTE variants – certainly has something to do with ICU equipment. Some users even got their watch replaced, but the new units also exhibited the same behavior.

The only workaround at the moment is to use the watch in airplane mode, but that – needless to say – limits the device’s functionality.

Officially, Apple says interference with medical equipment is expected, but there’s no information on whether such an environment can affect the watch itself.
