Galaxy watch 2 today suddenly stared overheating and almost burnt my wrist. Watch showed overheating symbol and shut down. Restarted several times but same result. Battery drained very quickly. Have reset watch twice and reinstalled app on my S8 but still overheating.
There appears to be no fix, despite Samsung being aware of this problem for some time now, and not recalling or repairing faulty devices.
i have used this watch now for 18 months and love it, but Samsung are about to loose yet another faithful customer unless they come up with a fix. Not be buying another Galaxy product.
Sorry to hear about this issue with your watch, @Yorkie09. If it has been reset and continues to heat up, it would be best to get this inspected by an engineer. You can arrange this by getting in touch via our Social Media channels or over the phone on 0333 000 0333. If the watch does become too hot to hold, please get in touch as soon as possible.
My Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE just all of a sudden started overheating on my wrist and I had to remove it before it burned me. I have not had any issues and I wasn't using any apps at the time. Now it can't be on more than a couple minutes before it says that it needs to shut down to cool. I have reset it and it is still doing the same. It is completely unusable.

my Galaxy watch suddenly started overheating to the extend I had to remove to avoid getting burned. Notice appears that watch is overheating and will shut down so that it can cool down.
My watch has stated to over heat and won't hold the charge, tried to reset and now it wont turn on, have rebooted and reset. Takes ages to charge, once charged it drops off so fast and a warning again appears saying to hot and goes into safe mode, what's going on with the Samsung watches I have had no issues in over two years. I don't have to the receipt so cannot return to the shop please advise on what's happening. As I see a lot off comments here regarding the same issues.
