The new Apple Watch SE is reportedly facing the issue of overheating. Some users have noticed that their Apple Watch overheats after a few hours of usage.
A total of six reports until now from users in South Korea reveal that a yellow spot appears in the top right corner of the Watch when it overheats. Watch owners also reported having been wearing the device on their wrists when they felt it overheating.
One report described the following situation on Reddit:
‘'The owner received the product on October 8. The owner slept with the watch on the wrist on October 9 night. Woke up on October 10 just to find the wrist is very hot. The owner quickly took off the watch to find the red wrist due to heat. No power signals from the watch, but the sound plays well when the watch is searched with the Find my Watch feature. The owner exchanged the device with a new product on October 16.’'.
It is not certain what could be causing the problem in the Watch, but it is assumed that the issue could be with the display connectors near the Taptic Engine, in case the Watch is similar in design to previous Watch models.
It is also important to note that the problem has been faced by users in South Korea only, so perhaps it is specific to Watches that were manufactured in a certain area and shipped to South Korea.
