Both my wife and I suddenly noticed a ‘blister’ on our vivosmart 4 watches. It is located just above the display opposite to the charging contacts.
Are more users experiencing this? The watch seems to work ok still.
Yesterday I saw one of my colleagues also had a vivosmart 4 watch. His was a bit younger (6 instead of my 11 months), but you could already see a small air bubble forming above the display if the light was right.
that is 3 out of 3 vivosmart 4 watches that I have seen that have a problem with gas formation within the device. If I was the product manager at Garmin for this device I would not get a good night sleep.
I brought mine back to the shop (Beversport, The Netherlands) and they will exchange it for a new one. Sadly that will take them 4-6 weeks! I could not send it to Garmin in the Netherlands directly.
On my wife’s vivosmart it is slowly increasing in size, but 4 months later still not as big as on the photo I posted of my watch in this thread.
I do not feel it getting hot or anything, so I do not expect it to cause a fire. It will probably pop at some stage.
As long as Garmin is replacing them I will keep sending them back.
