9/14/21 Update: after reviewing the feedback of many others, intermittently blurring the screen is clearly an intentional software function that has existed since the GW3 (but curiously, not on the GWA2). I am hoping the following feature request makes it to Samsung: please remove this feature and allow us to protect our own privacy through use of a combination of existing features: AOD, lift to wake, wake on notification, and individual notification control. Comment below if you agree. Thank you!
Received my GW4 last week and have been using it every day. Curious issue: sometimes (but not every time) when a notification is received, I look at the watch and it quickly blurs the notification and displays a generic, digital clock over the top. I have to hit a button to go back to the notification. There doesn't seem to be any discernible pattern to when this happens-- happens in any app, any time; even happens for one Whatsapp message, then not for another message immediately following. I even tried a factory reset and am still seeing the issue. Anyone else seeing this?
Settings: screen always on-YES, wake for notification-YES, lift to wake-NO, screen timeout-30.
This is stopping me from using QR codes to collect parcels at my post office. The reader is vertical and requires me tilting my wrist 90 degrees to display the code. If AOD is on I get this stupid screen saver. If AOD is off, my screen goes blank. Please fix
Driving me crazy as well. Samsung should implement the option to disabled this 'Clock screensaver'. Even the current implementation (for protecting privacy) is bad; it blocks most messages I receive and cant read them without interacting with the screen. like wt....
