    About the original issue (a clarification). Is this about SMS? I'm asking, because I've been seeing an issue with SMS notifications that might be related.

    First, with all other notifications I'm not seeing any issues. Pressing the checkmark marks the message as read and keeps it in the messages app, while pressing the X dismisses it and removes it from the app (and sometimes also from the phone, depending on the app). But, with regular text messages (SMS) the message is never removed from the app on the watch. Not even when dismissing the notification from the phone. A manual delete is required...

    I tested Message List just now and noticed that it has a bug with watch faces that doesn't use fast load: the app will open when a notification is received, but there will be no message. This was fixed in Message UI last week (not sure if it was 0.62 or 0.63 that fixed it).

    Yes. The device you need to connect to though, in the nrf app, is dfu targ which is only available while you're on that screen.

    An occasional splash from using the sink faucet was enough to make the device unresponsive and cause it to constantly reboot. This is surprising to me because IP67 rated devices are supposed to be protected from not just occasional splashes, but also water immersion of up to 1 meter for 30 minutes.

    FYI: If it was just a splash it shouldn't be any worries, but if the watch ended up directly in the water stream underneath the faucet it could have been exposed to water pressure that would greatly exceed the pressure it would experience when just immersed to 1 meter.

    Yeah... The main problem is that people do not understand what the IP-ratings for dust- and waterproofness actually mean. They see "IP67, waterproof to 1 meter for 30 minutes" and think: "Great, I can swim with that as long as I don't dive". When in reality you shouldn't even let a watch with that rating go under the tap while washing your hands (unless you have a really soft flowing tap)...

    It is white down the hole when I check, so I guess my was one of those. How do we proceed?

    White means that the membrane is in place and everything is as it should (apart from the dead watch, of course).

    Considering it doesn't look like that watch face even uses seconds it seems weird to redraw it that often... That would do it though.

    Normally you should be able to go about a week without charging, unless you run the GPS all the time or have something else keeping the watch awake.

    As @Gordon said above, the 1 meter for 30 seconds rating is at optimal conditions. As soon as you move your arm in the water you're going to exceed the pressure that an IP67 rating is for. Basically it's splash proof and might survive a quick accidental dunk, nothing more...

    If you want something that could be called waterproof you need to have at least IP68.
