I know this is an old thread, but i am experiencing the same issue. The watch responds to notifications and is connected to my phone (I am yet to test steps etc) but the screen is completely blakc with the occasional flash/green horizontal lines. It appears my only option is to send for repair. Does anyone have any feedback after having a "glitchy" screen and sending for repair please?
Had the same problem. Watch has been pretty much fine, but this afternoon just went black and unresponsive. I held the power button for 10 seconds and it rebooted successfully.
Something to keep an eye on!
Same problem to my Samsung S3 gear also. Last two days it seemed like display has gone. As you told, I pressed the power switch while charging and voila!! it breathed back to life..! I was planning to repair it.. Thanks a lot ..
I have had mine less than a week. I was like what the . . .
At work all day and right towards the end of my shift i went to look at my watch and it was blank
Tried to flick it on and nothing. Kept vibrating and making sounds but no screen
2 hours later i am at home and press the power button after finding this page and after 2 seconds came on. Didnt have it on charge either. Im glad its working but its obvious after a year of it being in circulation the problem is still not fixed.
