    Is anyone else noticing that the Mickey Mouse sound will crackle when tapped to speak? It only happens with extended sounds, its fine when he just says the time, but if he says good evening pal, it will crackle. It doesn't do it every time, but it does happen a lot. I have a series 2 SS SB. I did not notice this on my series 1 SG I returned. Thanks for any replies.

    Maybe the mouse can't catch up to the faster processing speed on the Series 2?

    Yes I have found this too. Even with the Minnie Mouse giggle too.
    Obviously an issue with this latest update, as didn't hear before that.
    Hopefully the next update addresses this issue.

    Not sure what it is but with mine it's sometimes caused by water. It can get trapped when the speaker doesn't eject it all and sounds crackly for a little while.

    Thanks for checking. Mine is definitely not caused by water. Haven't even had it two weeks yet and it has never been wet and has been doing it from the start. Hopefully an update will fix it.

    So the mouse can squeak in full glory once again without needing a Ricola. :D

    Thanks. It happens randomly for me. Seems if you haven't tapped it for awhile it will happen.

    Just checked mine again and Mickey has apparently recovered from whatever illness he had been inflicted with.

    I noticed this immediately after getting my SS S2 last week. It happens randomly though. I thought there was something wrong with my speaker, it hasn't been in water either.

    Got my Nike S2 last Saturday, noticed it a handful of times. I contacted AppleCare, they said it's "rare" but likely software, wait for the next update (read: we know about it, wait for the next update). So far, I love the watch--I didn't think I'd use it half as much as I do.

    Same here. Periodically it would do that.

    It's always been like this ever since I got the watch in September. Not every time, but enough to know it's an ongoing issue. It's like the Watch can't keep up or something. Let's see if it gets fixed eventually.

    3.2 hasn't yet fixed it completely for me, but it happens a LOT less on my end. I've only had it happen once so far when it used to happen every other time or so.

    Yeah not sure why it makes cracking sound sometime. Could it be moisture in the speaker grills?

    v3.2.2 still hasn't fixed it completely for me but it's not nearly as obnoxious as it used to be.
