Some users report watchOS 3.1.1 update bricking Apple Watches

A series of users posting on Reddit and elsewhere are reporting that yesterday’s watchOS 3.1.1 update has hopelessly locked their Apple Watches, leaving the device displaying a red exclamation point and directing them to visit the Apple Watch help page. While many users are seeing the update run on their watches without a hitch, those with bricked devices have been told by Apple support that they have to send their watch off for a fix. Apple Stores are unable to service the watches, but have been facilitating arranging for replacements. Series 2 watches seem particularly susceptible to the problem, though the cause is currently unknown. [via AppleInsider]
