The bug seems to stem from the new Infograph faces' Activity complications that is failing to register an hour from the 24 hours in a day.

Some Apple Watch Series 4 models repeatedly crashing and rebooting due to daylight saving time bug. We had daylight saving this morning at 2am where the clock was brought forward for an hour. Since Australians have moved their clocks ahead by one hour, the activity complication is unable to account for the missing hour, and thus, the device is getting confused. Apple is likely working on a fix for this issue and will roll out an update to address it so locations yet to transition to DST won't face the same problem. If Apple doesn't manage to push a fix out by then, users might be forced to either brace the wait or disable the Infograph Modular face within the iPhone application if they can not bear a day without. "The watch was stuck on a reboot loop and would not charge up or restart", complained one Reddit user. The bug appeared when trying to activate desktop Infograph Modular. On iOS 4.0, the alarm failed to go off on time, causing people to be late.

With Daylight Saving Time (DST) now in effect in Australia, some users claim the watch has re-calibrated and remedied the issue. The Nike+ Series 4 is available for purchase in several countries, including the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Australia and some European and Asian markets.
