Alt-barometer on Galaxy Watch

I have had the Alt-Barometer on my watched repaired twice by Samsung and now I have the same problem again about 3 mnth after they fixed it for the 2nd time.  My watch is 18 month old.  This time I tried to clean the area where the sensor is located and it worked for about 24 hours each time I cleaned it with isopropyl alcohol  / water mixture soak  for about 2 hours.  This time I soaked it longer to see if I can get it cleaned out.  I stopped subjecting it to water, like showering or the pool.  I just wipe it off.  The cleaning with IPA and water in a cup is the only time it got submerged in the last 6 months.  I thought water wsa the problem.  I would think if this were the issue Samsung would tell everyone and give us a method to clean the sensors.  Does anyone else have any suggestions?  I have cleaned my watch 3 times now and waiting this last time to see how long the alt-barometer app keeps working for.
