    When I draw a sketch or receive one, during the time the sketch fades, the whole screen randomly flickers the same color as the sketch. Definitely not normal. Anyone else experiencing this? Compared it to my wifes watch and hers does not do it.

    mine's not doing that at all. Could try resetting the watch and restoring to see if that helps. Or just turn it off and back on, and try again.

    Factory reset it, issue remains. But now I don't receive any digital touches anymore. Can only send them! #

    Doesn't sound good. Send it back for a replacement.

    Really

    You think if one cannot SEND or RECEIVE it means the watch is broken?

    I can send them, but cannot receive. I get notifications (actually it doesn't notifiy, but I pull down and it is there) but there is nothing there when I open them.

    When I look at a contact in my friends, that little icon in the middle just spins.

    I ended up having my wife power cycle her watch and then try sending me a digital touch again, and now i'm receiving them. Its like her watch was sending it to the wrong place ever since i factory reset and only after she power cycled, did it find my restored watch. Anyway, the original issue with the screen flashing the color of the sketch still remains, so i have a genius bar appointment coming up. :mad:

    This kind of issue makes me want to wait until all clear before getting one :mad:

    Can't be bothered trouble shooting for Apple and be a beta tester... just don't have the time for that.
