The common factor in these cases was the use of Samsung’s Digital Neon watch face, leading to speculation that this particular watch face was responsible for the issue.

Per the Samsung-focused site SamMobile, it was confirmed that the Digital Neon watch face was causing these repeated restarts.

Samsung has now initiated the rollout of an update specifically designed to resolve this issue with the Digital Neon watch face.

To get this update and sort out the Digital Neon watch face troubles, launch the Galaxy Wearable app on your smartphone, navigate to Watch faces, locate the Digital Neon watch face, and find the update button. Tap on it to download and install the latest version of the watch face.
