Voiceover stuttering and stopping on new watch

Forum
watchOS and Apple Watch Apps

Morning all,

I just purchased an Apple Watch 42mm. It is running OS 2.2 and has been fine for a day and a half. Suddenly, it has started to stutter and read in a most interupted fashion - as if the watch is not capable of running it. This is particularly noticeable when touching activity. It is baffling. I reset the device but hacked it up. Any thoughts or help welcome. Thanks.

UPDATE - I have now, apparently fixed this problem - which really seemed to crop up from nowhere. Unfortunately, resetting and restoring only took a stack of time to restore the fault - jumpy, sluggish and broken voiceover. I then reset and set the device up fresh. This does seem to have fixed the problem. Does anyone know what this Kay have been about - or can anyone possibly share their experiences and reassure me that it won't require a full reset every two days?

Thanks

Hello Sean, I just found your post here, and I'm having exactly the same problem. I just wondered if your reset and restore put an end to the stuttering voice over, or if it did it again? I've only had my watch up and running for a couple of days, and this morning it's stuttering and static.

Would love to know how you went and for all advice and info. Thank you.

So glad and thankful to you all for submitting this issue, as my Apple Watch Voiceover just started stuttering today. My battery was still at 50%. So I knew that wasn't the cause, so what I did was simply power off my watch and restarted it, giving it a fresh reboot which thankfully corrected the VO stutter, at least for now. Maybe this is hopefully just a software glitch that Apple will hopefully take into consideration of correcting in the next available update for those of us who are in genuine need of Voiceover to work properly. My watch is new, a about 2 1/2 months old. So hope this isn't a hardware issue. Anyway, hope this helped.
