    I was trying to read an email reply today that was in dark blue text (often the default text color) and it was unreadable on my watch against the black background!

    Black text is white, is there a way to change the default color of blue text in an email?

    bug

    Yeah this is totally a bug - seems to be mostly problematic in threads.

    The default color for email reply text in outlook is blue and the watch does a terrible job displaying it. On the watch app on the phone go to general, accessibility and enable reduce transparency. This will help make the blue text somewhat more legible, especially on notifications, but its still not great.

    Yeah they really need to program it so the watch automatically displays all email text in white, regardless of how it's formatted in the email.

    I did too, and I'll wager we are not the only ones.

    I'll try the "reduce transparency" setting and see if it helps.

    And I thought it was just my eyes.

    Need the ability to change it for sure.
