Watch Restarts During Vigourous Exercise

Model number: SM-R805F

Tizen version:

Software version: R805FXXU1FSL4

Alright this one is kind of a weird one but I'm really curious as to what is causing it.

I regularly go to the gym and lift heavy weights (heavy relative to me) and for some reason my galaxy watch is restarting itself, specifically it restarts when I do heavy squats only, no other exercises.

Why does this happen? I have experimented with changing how tight I wear the watch but it doesn't seem to have any affect on the bug. My thinking is something is going amiss with the BPM heart monitor, as I reach high BPM during squats (however not abnormally high for my age) though I'm not sure why that might cause the entire watch to restart itself. I also wonder if something odd is happening with the accelerometer during the squat that might be causing something to go wrong with the watch.

Unsure if the code is available for review, as I would like to investigate myself if possible. Any input on this issue, albeit small issue, is welcome.
