Apple Watch S1, Still have a boot loop after battery replacement
My S1 stopped working and would only show the apple logo boot loop when on the charger. No signs of life off the charger and no luck with a hard reset. From my research it seemed like a dead battery was the culprit, so I ordered an iFixit kit and did the battery replacement (and force touch sensor replacement since it came in the kit).
Before sticking the screen back on I tried to boot it up. Unfortunately I had the same behavior as before with the boot loop. However, through whatever button pushing and taking it on and off the charger I was able to get the green charging snake to show up...I didn't see that before but I may not have played with it enough to show up.
Anyway, does anyone have advice before I give up on it? Maybe it's just dead. I suppose I could have got a defective battery but that seems unlikely.
