Hi.

I just got a good deal on a brand new stainless steel serie 0.

When i turn it on i could spot a very little dot, so small that i dont think a "normal" guy would see it.
Must hold it close and look after it.

Only reason i find it is because it was inside the white apple logo when i start it up
I downloaded a white Picture to take a closer look.
It not visable in every angel, if i bend the watch a bit backward the small . is gone, but if i keep it forward against me in normal possision i would see it on white backround if i get close.

Strange that it could be gone in some other angel view?

We have another watch s0 ss in the house and it have the same dot as me but in a corner where it always black anyway.

What is this pixel called? And could it turn dead so it could light up a color dot later?

Thanks for reply with my small issue :)

You title (and description) seems to suggest a sub pixel is stuck off. The pixel is made of 3 sub pixels (RGB) and here is a pic of the :apple:Watch OLED (white box contains one pixel). If one sub pixel is off you will see a secondary color on a pure white screen.

Red off = Cyan
Green off = Magenta
Blue off = Yellow

However 1 pixel off would be in spec and not noticeable in normal use.

Thanks for reply guys, the pixel is not lightning out color, looks more like a small dust partickle, but if i change angel view it not visible, That is why i know its not dust.
From normal angel view i could see it on white like i said.
This is a 1/3 dead pixel? I have two of theas, on in the middle and one in the corner.
If it not could be worse i could keep it and forget it. Is it more risk to get a complete dead pixel when 1/3 is dead?

Judging from your posts, it's a dead pixel. You can either keep it knowingly it has the issue or contact Apple and see your options are.
