• Hi all,
    my bangle.js 2 watch is constantly vibrating after I unlock it. I will do so for few minutes, keeping the display on. I can't enter menu or do anything.
    I will stop after few minutes of if I press hard on screen it stops, but continues when let go.
    Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaLn4sUE­auc

    Any idea how to fix this?
    Thank you!

  • Is the firmware and all the software up to date?

    I'd be interested to know whether, if you reboot the watch by long-pressing the button and keep it pressed so you enter the recovery menu, if you let the screen go off and then press the button to unlock it whether you get a buzz then?

    If not, it'll be a software issue - might be an idea to backup the watch using the app loader, then do a factory reset and slowly reinstall apps and see when/if it starts happening

  • Firmware is v21, deleted all apps, cleared settings, install only default ones. Touch screen is experiencing random touches and it's hard to navigate. Pressing the button and getting into menu somethings returns back immediately: https://youtube.com/shorts/q4C09xZQ1CA
    Reason why it was buzzing was b/c widget i uses what reacting to touch with a buzz https://github.com/espruino/BangleApps/t­ree/master/apps/clockcal

  • Sorry to hear that - have you been swimming/showering with the watch on or anything like that?

    When I've seen the touchscreen play up on watches before it's often appeared to be because of water that's inside the watch. It might be worth trying to leave your watch somewhere warm and dry for a few days and see if that makes the situation better?

  • No, I learned that from my first bangle watch that i doesn't like water(died, b/c water got in thru corroded charging port) . So no showering/swimming or submerging into water. Only contact with water is when it's get splashed during hand washing.
    So it seems it's hardware related after all :/ .I was not wearing it for few days and still the issue persisted.
