    For about a week now, I have been using my AW6, with the AoD option on.
    A moment ago, I turned off the AoD.

    Often, when notifications would come through, the screen would sort of get stuck, between the watch display and the said notification. Thus showing both. Rather annoying.

    Anyone else notice this issue?

    I haven’t noticed anything like that.
    Turn your Watch off and on again to see if that helps.

    Watch has been restarted and even did a soft reset, too.

    Is anyone else experiencing screen weirdness when the Always On Display feature is ENABLED?-98efd82c-17d2-4d74-94eb-fa7e018654c8.jpeg

    The issue happens when AoD is ENABLED. I disabled it, due to the issue...

    That is normal. Your watch is in always on dim mode, which always shows either a watch face that supports AOD, or it shows the time in the upper-right corner, with what the display was showing at the time it went into AOD dim mode showing blurred in the background, just like your photo shows. The only other exception is the Workout app, which shows your configured workout data updated once per second in AOD dim mode.

    Hmm, interesting. I will monitor this closely.
    To be honest, in around a week, the last two days were the only times I noticed this. I felt it was 'getting stuck' when switching from dim mode to normal mode, or from AoD mode to normal viewing mode...

    I can fix that. Give me a second, to make sure that it is correct.

    Thanks. I wasn't aware of that exception.

    It's probably the major reason I stick with the stock workouts app. Apple really needs an API to allow third party apps to show data in AOD mode, especially other workout apps.
