Question: Auto switch won’t work after 4.1 update

So since 4.1 Watch OS update, my iPhone won’t automatically switch between my watches. It’s an iPhone 8 with latest iOS. The watches are series 3 (not cellular) and the other is series 2. Any fix? Thanks

iPhone 8, iOS 11.1

Hi


Apple advises that Auto Switch may not work if the "Wake Screen on Wrist Raise" or "Wrist Detection" settings are turned off in the Watch app on your iPhone. If the feature does not work, Apple advises turning off Auto Switch and using your iPhone to switch between watches.


If the settings referenced above are already enabled on both watches, then it may help to unpair and re-pair one or both of them:



If you have not yet done so, also update your iPhone to the latest software:
