Just like everyone else on this thread, this happened to me as well.
Prior to this I had an S3 Frontier which malfunctioned after warranty was up, I sent it back and was told it was damaged in water. It was never in water and only used to work out. They gave me a quote to repair it that was more than a new watch. Unreal.
When the Galaxy Watch was introduced with the ability to be worn while swimming I reasoned that this would be perfect as if it can stand up to swimming, it can stand up to my sweat.
Had the watch for about 7 months and use it to track running and sport activities. I don't use it swimming.
This past week my GPS location stopped working. I tried turning the GPS on/off and hard resetting the watch. No luck. Then realized it also stopped tracking steps.
Took it off and found the glass backing that goes over the sensor had shifted off and it too had the gummy residue from the failed glue on the back of the watch.
This is unacceptable and ridiculous. I have bought countless Samsung phones and watches. This is the second time I've thrown money away by buying a Samsung watch.
I'll call customer service tomorrow when it opens but I don't anticipate having luck from them due to my previous experiences with them.
After reading all these other posts and realizing it is a common problem it makes me really upset and disappointed in the waste of money this purchase turned out to be.
