Button click quality very bad

From the time I bought my 245 replacing the 235, I noticed that the buttons are very hard to press, produce a very strong "click" sound, they seem to have two levels of pressing, and also the pressing is inconsistent: sometimes it is clicky, sometimes not. In comparison to my old 235, they feel very bad and the quality seems worse. Maybe it has to do with the mechanism for the water ressistance, but still, the feeling is very bad: the watch feels cheap because of that.

Did you notice the same in your device?

  • Mine is the same, bought my slate 245 non-music yesterday and I can confirm the 'stickiness'. First button press after a while definately feels different then consecutive presses. Also the up-down buttons have a distinctly different feel then the back button for example. Can't say it's a problem yet, just that it feels a little weird. If I notice I start missing laps and/or stop/starts because it doesn't register my press, I will go to my local retailer. But I'm going to use it for now and see where it goes.
