If your Galaxy Watch is frozen and unresponsive, press and hold the Home key (Power key) for more than 7 seconds to restart it.

If this does not solve the problem (i.e. the device still sometimes freezes after rebooting it as described above), perform a factory data reset. 

Please note: Before performing the factory data reset, remember to back up all important data stored in the Galaxy Watch

On the Apps screen, tap (Settings) →  General →  Reset
