‘Blister’ forming on watch. Vivosmart 4 Batterygate?

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.

  • Mine had a bubble too and it leaked from where the silicone meets the hard plastic case so it's gone for now. Consistency of golden syrup, no smell. Device still holds charge and works Well (other than the bezel dropping off 3 months ago). Unfortunately it is out of warranty so it may be the end of a AU$200 device after 15 months. Will I be buying another Garmin? Not really the quality I was expecting...
