My watch was virtually silent until the last upgrade. Now it seems to often bing and vibrate for no obvious reason.

Anyone else had that?

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Seriously though, this has sorted the occasional glitch with my watches over the years. The last time I wouldn't receive haptic feedback when notifications popped up. A quick off/on sorted it.

The above advice is a good starting point. I'm on the Garmin beta program so I receive frequent software updates on my wearable. Its been standard practice now to perform a soft reboot (off/on) after every update. These devices don't get turned off very frequently so if there's an app that's being a bit of a memory hog it always helps to do a restart occasionaly.

Press and hold the side button and the digital crown, until you see the apple logo. Should give it a reset and and get its collective stuff back together. 


Mine's been fine sine the last update, for what it's worth.
