    Thank you - and thank you for spotting the error in the JSON file. Hope to change the icons as well later tonight or tomorrow.

    I have a 1 bit image without transparency that appears negative when the watch is in dark mode (BangleJS2).

    Is there any way of over-riding this, or should I just use 4-bit mode? (Which would be a shame as I think the string will become longer, and the image just comprises black and white pixels).

    Grateful for any advice!

    (Reason is building watch face below:)

    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!
