LG G Watch receives update to stop issue with corrosion
According to an LG Support rep, only a small number of LG G Watch units have "developed discoloration and residue buildup." A statement from LG says that the corrosion is unlikely to affect charging, and is completely safe. Still, the company is sending out an update that will turn the current to the watch off when it is not in the charger. The reason that this will stop the corrosive process, is that when current runs through two materials and an electrolyte (your skin), a chemical process occurs, leading to the corrosion.
The update has started going out to LG G Watch owners OTA, so keep an eye peeled for its arrival. Until then, as we noted, LG says that the timepiece is safe to use, although some LG G Watch owners have complained about discomfort while wearing the watch. But help is on the way, so be patient and the update will soon arrive.
