The picture is with the screen out of the case and the blotchiness is still there. I tried putting a little pressure on the screen but that did not do anything. Always charged the watch over night (indicator at 100% in the morning) and that was good for several (3-4) days with the indicator slowly decreasing with time. Can't be sure the watch never got wet but it was definitely never submerged. The problem started while the watch was charging in a dry place. The large o-ring was perfectly in place. Happy to return the watch. I'll mail you the details.
