Strangely enough, this is not Apple's first time having problems with daylight savings time. We had daylight saving this morning at 2am where the clock was brought forward for an hour. The bug is causing endless loops on the Watch Series 4 as the device turns on, tries to load the Activity complication, encounters an error and restarts. The watch faces show 24 hours in a day, but experts say the missing hour could be creating a software spin. "But a fellow Australian forum user pointed out this is due to a bug in the Infograph Activity complication". The most famous incident, back in 2010, caused alarms to go off at the wrong time. Having just experienced the time change for Fall, many upset Australians were anxious that their watches were defective given constant crashing and reboot issues.

As the watch gets stuck in a reboot loop, affected users can either wait it out until tomorrow when the bug should correct itself, or attempt to remove the complication from the Apple Watch app on the iPhone.

In other words, it is not piss poor programming you have to worry about as Apple has more time to fix it before daylight saving changes happen in civilised countries.

The new Series 4 watches have a display that includes a lot of information. This limited-edition variant is different from the standard Series 4 model in several ways. Along with the new iPhones, the company has also launched its Apple Watch Series 4. The one with a dial of 44mm is 459 euros. The Nike+ Series 4 is available for purchase in several countries, including the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Australia and some European and Asian markets. The microphone is now on the opposite side far away from the speaker to help reduce the echo and make calls clearer.
