    Sorry for the title. Anyone else notice that dust gets caught between the screen and bezel. The dust proves difficult to remove. Not a major issue. Can really be seen when you shine the touch of any iPhone around the bezel.

    Is it anything a few bursts with a can of compressed air won't take care of?

    Doesn't bother me, and I have a Space Grey so all of the crap would be much more noticeable, and it is, but it doesn't bother me.

    It's not like my 3GS where crap actually got stuck between the display and glass.

    Mine has easily noticeable dust in it. But in fairness to Apple it's only a first gen product that's bound to have issues like this that only appear after the watch is in use. The only surprise was just like the scratches it has these two problems occurred after just four days.

    I work indoors and didn't use it during my training run or in the gym since I use my SUUNTO AMBIT 3 for that.

    Oh well the price of being an early adopter is always expensive.

    It does remind me off issues with past iPhones and dust between display and bezel.

    It bothers me on my iPhone, and I usually clean it. On the watch it is really to small to notice.

    For my 3G, I just used a toothpick once in a while. Is the gap big enough on the watch for that?

    It's only noticeable under bright light from iPhone torch.

    I've had the watch for a few days now and haven't noticed any dust. Hoping it stays this way...

    I actually have that problem on the space gray iPhone 6+. Well I think. It's hard to clean while I have the case on it, but it's cleaned off easily when the case isn't on.

    I don't remember there being as big of a gap or seam on the watch, so maybe we're not talking about the same thing.

    I don't think this rises to the level of being a "gate"
