Just wondering if the OLED screen is at all visible in bright sunlight.
I have mine set to 50% brightness and I personally have no trouble seeing / reading the screen in bright daylight.
yes, it has been crystal clear for me in the sun. i tested this early on as it was important to me. I've got the Sports in gray, and am using the yellow text. perfect in bright light.
Well, there's 'in sunlight' (outdoors) and 'in direct sunlight' (sunlight directly on the screen). I know I can't read my iPhone or AW in the latter case.
Thanks for responding, folks!
Yep, I'm at default brightness and tried using it intentionally in direct sunlight. The screen definitely doesn't look pretty (You can easily see the air gap in direct sunlight) but there is easily enough contrast to use it just fine.
At 50% brightness on my Apple Watch it was visible but I prefered brighter so I put it up to 100% brightness. Maybe it has to do with the sapphire?
Other then in direct sunlight, display is bright and clear.
Everything is as expected.
