You may also want to complete a factory reset if your Galaxy Watch 3 is not working properly, such as running slow, not loading, not providing notifications, turning on and off, and displaying a black watch face but running in the background. We recommend you complete scheduled back-ups on your Galaxy Watch 3 and other devices so important data is not lost in case of situations where you aren’t able to access or use the device.
