    Has anyone noticed their watch faces bleeding into every other screen? Didn't notice earlier but my white face now has a shadow on every app screen in the back ground like a shadow of the watch blurred.

    Try "reduce transparency". (It's on the iPhone in the Watch app under General -> Accessibility -> Reduce Transparency.)

    Does that make the "shadow" go away?

    Actually, I saw this background shadow in several Apple Watch videos. I just assumed it was the same kind of transparency we see with MacOS X 10.10.3 on the iMac, where the background image bleeds through to the top active layer.

    I really do hope that is the case. I'd be very disappointed if there were something wrong with the AMOLED screen technology Apple is using where the screen is not refreshing properly.

    And this is the kind of stuff I like to see, it's why I wait whenever a company does something radical or different from their norm.

    Yeah, I'm with you, I think it's just the transparency. . . . Either way, I didn't even really notice it until I read this post.

    Have any of you folks tried what lexic suggests above and if so, does it help?

    I just tried that and it totally helped! I can no longer see the blurred image of the clock face lurking in the background.
