Black bar on notification center

Post by milanvanharen » Sun Feb 12, 2017 8:20 pm


I recently recieved my TIcwatch 2 and noticed a black bar on the notification screen, which is really inconsistant. Some times it's just there, sometimes not. Also the size isn't always the same, some times it covers the entire screen!

Does someone know what this is and how to get rid of it? Tried factory reset... It's not a VERY big problem, but I just wanne know why it's there :D

Basically, it's the notification window's shadow... ...Sort of.
When you pull up the notification menu, it'll essentially grab a screenshot of the watch face and then use that as the transparent background, but sometimes it does it slowly, and the beginning part of when you started opening the notification drawer is visible. I've also noticed, that if you pull it up just when the time changes, the previous minute might still be visible on the transparent BG, but when you dismiss it, it's the new time.
It should go away the next time the time changes.
