    Anyone else noticed this. If you angle your watch just right (wrong?) the auto brightness makes everything flicker between dim and bright.

    I can stop it by either shading from the sun, or angling it towards the sun.

    It happening on 2 devices, so I’m fairly sure it’s not a hardware issue (or I’m extremely unlucky)

    UPDATE: it only happens if the sun is low angle from the side opposite the crown. It’s fine if I face the other way and try it.

    See it here ;-



    Dave.

    I noticed a bit of that. I turned off the always on because I found it annoying. I'll turn it on for my runs though.
    (Yes, I've said I wasn't getting a Series 5, but had to bring my 4 in for repair - non-responsive crown - and I found I couldn't go 10 days without. Pathetic, I know . But now I'll have a backup.)
