GWA Stuck on Touch the screen with your palm to turn it off

I've had the GWA for some time and it's been working fine. Recently the touch screen has become unreliable, and I started getting phantom touches yesterday. So I reset the watch.

When it restarted it brings up the tour on swiping left, right, down, button etc I cannot get past the Touch the screen with your palm to turn it off. No matter how many times I try covering screen with my entire hand, it never goes off and the tour overlay returns.

Any idea how to clear this? Cannot find any solution on the Wear app either.

Sorry, don't understand what "Palm - Turn Screen Rotation On / Off" is.

I've restarted watch several times, I can only get through the first few steps of the tour when I enable the touch bezel. The touch screen with palm remains, no matter how often or long I cover the screen.

Accessibility in the Wear app does not have an auto rotate option.
