    Hi all, i just got a 38mm apple sport watch yesteday and the first thing i noticed was that the display colour can change when changing the viewing angle very easily.

    I notice it on anything white like the hands of the clock face or a message etc.

    So off angle in any direction it changes to a blueish white, and looking at it straight on it's kind of reddish white.

    Is this normal for the apple watch due to it having an oled display ?

    The oleophobic coating also plays a roll in this.

    I doubt it's anything you should worry about.

    Ok thanks guys for the feedback, i don't think i'm more sensitive to it, it's just very obvious when i move the watch that's all.

    Cheers anyway.
