Unhappy How to revive Zombie Wigdets android

I have a widget which is being serviced by a Service in my code. Now when the application is forced stopped the service also stops.

So now there is no one to update the widget and widget is acting like a zombie.

Now If I start the application activity the widget cannot be revived as I do not have the Id of the widget.

What is the best way to handle such situations?

Make another background service to keep the service running. Better to put it as a persistent notification though I'm not sure why you would want to have your app force closed.
Customize your clock.
