You're updating it wrong. Duh.

Apple has pulled the latest watchOS 3.1.1 update after some users reported that it bricked their Apple Watch. While it's not yet clear what has caused the issue, Apple's support page suggests trying to force restart the watch by pressing and holding the side button and the Digital Crown at the same time. Several Reddit threads on the update suggest that this rarely works, with many users forced to return the watch to an Apple Store or mail it to Apple directly for fixing or a replacement.
