Not sure if this makes sense, but occasionally I will look down at my watch and notice that the notifications shade pulldown (when you swipe down) is peaking out at the top of the screen. I can then swipe up again and completely get rid of it, but it has happened numerous times in the last week or so. It may have started after the update but I'm not entirely sure. Wondering if this has happened to anyone else. Doesn't seem to correspond to any particular series of actions taken on the watch. I will just randomly look down from time to time and see the bottom of the notification thing peaking out at the very top of the screen. It won't disappear unless I actively swipe up. Doesn't happen all the time, just here and there. Thanks.

Managed to get a picture as it just happened again randomly. You can see at the top. Just sits there until I swipe it away.

I just noticed this for the first time today. Wondering if it’s a bug that was introduced in the recent 8.5 update. Had you seen this happen before this week?

Ah, so maybe it is. Mine wasn’t doing this more than a week ago. Probably a 8.5 bug. Would assume more people would be complaining about it though. I was also wondering if maybe I did something to it inadvertently around the same time as the update, but that would be a weird coincidence.

I notice this happening on my watch as well, but didn't think much of it until I saw this post. I don't recall this happening before the most recent update

Been happening for months to me too at complete random. It literally has a life of its own, slightly sliding down into the watch face when it feels like it (even if I'm not doing anything except looking at the watch) and then just vanishes, only to reappear at some other random time.

A software update came out a while back and it seemed to be better, but over the last month it’s now much worse. Happens constantly throughout the day to mine. Very annoying.

I have a problem with the swipe up menu, it sometimes doesn't work at all, I have to re-start the watch, annoying.
