My watch will randomly appear with everything as a backwards mirror image. And everything that is normally white turns orange. I'll also get multi colored lines and bright spots that make the watch unusable, like a YV great pattern. (See attached images.) The only way I've been able to get rid of these problems is to reboot the watch. It started out happening only once every few months and now is happening several times a week.

Have you performed a factory reset without restoring the backup?

Reboot the watch so that you can get to Settings 

Do not restore your watch backup as the issue may be with that.

Master reset from settings menu
From the Apps screen, tap Settings.
Tap Gear info.
Tap Reset Gear.
Tap the check mark to confirm.
Wait for the device to reset. The device is reset to its factory settings.

Or, from off
