I purchased the 46mm Active Watch 2 - LTE Version about a month ago, and I want it to do 2 things -
1- Track my run/walk/exercise
2- Play Spotify
I want it to do both these things without needing my phone, as I have a note 8, and strapping that to your arm is a bit of a pain due to size.
But about 5 mins into the exercise whether that be a run, or a walk, the watch starts to overheat, which stops everything until it cools.
I thought it was an issue with the hardware, so got a replacement from Samsung, but the same thing is happening with this one.
I thought it was Samsung health auto detection trying to detect too many activites, so started using Strava, and switched off all auto detection, but this still hasnt helped.
I play Spotify from downloaded music, rather than streaming, and play it through Bluetooth headphones.
Is anyone else having these issues? Am i doing something wrong? Is there anything I can do to limit CPU speed to help keep it cool? Or is it just that I am expecting far too much from a watch designed to be used as an exercise watch.
The ambient temperature is only around 15-16C, so that shouldnt be an issue, sometimes the watch works fine, but more often than not, its over heats and crashes.
Can anyone help?
