Although Apple Watch is not listed this topic seems to fit this forum better than any other. I have just upgraded my Apple Watch 4 to Watch OS 5.1.2 and it no longer responds to raising my wrist — I have to tap on the face to activate the watch. I have checked the settings both on the watch and the watch app on my iPhone and the orientation and left or right arm is correct, and the settings to activate on wrist raise are also correct. I have tried the universal cure (rebooting) twice, all to no effect. A quick DuckDuckGo search did not turn anything useful up. Any suggestions before I give up and make an appointment at the Apple Store?
