It's like the first iPhone. Although now under powered, no other iPhone enjoys the same cult status. Same with the first Apple Watch. I believe I'll hold on to it as long as it's functional.
Speaking of the first gen AW, think some of you might be aware that nearly 3 mths ago, my first AW's rear sensor plate became loose and could not operate anymore, went through quite some processes before Apple replaced it with a brand new one, even when out of warranty.
This morning when taking it off the charger, the rear sensor plate of the replacement piece dislodged again! I was told by my local service centre that it has 3 mths warranty and now it's just 2 mths+, so it's off to the service centre later.
Just terribly disappointed and it's the only Apple product I own over the many years that gave so much problems. Will see what happens thereafter.
I've seen this a bunch. A few things I do:
My watch is over a year old now and I haven't had any issues. I do realize the issue is not on all watches but these steps should help quite a bit.
- Slide the watch off the charger, don't pull straight up. A stand helps. I use one like this Spigen in the iMore store.
- Let the watch cool before removing. It gets warm, which seems to soften the glue. Either let it get to 100% or unplug it if you need to, and wait a few minutes before sliding it off.
