“Wrist-Gate II”: Apple Watch Activation On Wrist Raise Not Working In Vertical Turn

Apple Watch Sport Space Gray Aluminium Case 42 mm Black Sport BandApple Watch activation on wrist raise is not working in the vertical turn, demonstrated with an Apple Watch Sport with 42 mm Space Gray Aluminium Case and Black Sport Band (product number MJ3T2LL). Apple is describing the activation on wrist raise with “From the moment you wake the display with a simple raise of the wrist, you’ll be comfortable using Apple Watch”. That’s not entirely true: The activation on wrist raise is solely working the horizontal turn. However, it completely fails in any other direction.

It is really annoying that the Apple Watch activation on wrist raise is not working in the vertical turn. Hopefully, an Apple Watch OS update will soon improve the activation on wrist raise. By the way, I’m still testing my Apple Watch. More details are following! Do you have any special question for testing? Comment and I’ll have a look into it!

Stay tuned! 😉
