    I think both issues, but yes the 2 second boot was new to me and caused me to think it was dead when it wasn't!

    Hi @Gordon - thank you for such a swift and helpful reply. I have done as you suggested - holding down button for 2 seconds, it has rebooted and is now taking a charge. I will follow your advice about toothpaste and tape. The sudden extreme discoloration of the pads surprised me, though - it's an issue I've been aware of and consciously checking the state of the pads. Maybe I just got sweaty in the warmer weather!

    Hi @Gordon - my Kickstarter bangle.js 2 also won't charge. Its contacts seem to have turned black very quickly, within the last 2 weeks of normal use. I've worn it almost every day since it was shipped. It went flat overnight and noticed the black this morning. I gently scraped the black off the outer two contacts but it still won't charge, it's totally dead. Any ideas if this is just the contacts or do I have a more serious fault?

    In case this is useful to anyone else: I had what looked like the same connection issues @TheDod had, fixes outlined above didn't help, no other devices were connecting to my watch. Rebooting the laptop does seem to have fixed the issue, though!

    It's 7.30am in London, the moon phase widget is showing a full moon and yet the moon I can see out of my window right now looks like it's ever so slightly slightly waning, it looks a bit less full than it did when I posted this thread. I guess it's a moot (moon?!) point when you change from one discrete phase image to another, but it certainly looks like it needs shifting forwards a bit.

    Thanks @myownself - good to know!
    @nicoboss feels like it could 'tip' a bit earlier - I wonder if I notice this more when it's waxing as it is now than when it's waning.

    I'm using the northern hemisphere moon phase widget (in the SE UK in case that makes a difference!) It seems a bit 'slow' to me - i.e. I'm looking out the window right now at what looks like a full moon, the phase on my Bangle JS2 widget looks like it's at least 1 phase behind. Has anyone else noticed this? Is it to do with how often it updates?

    I have the same red MEMORY_BUSY message appearing on my BangleJS2 - latest firmware and pedometer widget showing large numbers like this.
