    any idea what that is? Looks almost like black ink leaking.

    Looks like moisture may have came in contact with the OLED.

    Have you tried changing the band?

    Just kidding.

    Go with the moisture thing and not the band changing

    Without a doubt water or moisture has got inside the watch. Even the slightest contact will turn the screen black as it will no longer work where it got wet.

    Hope we are under warranty.

    So here is what I find odd about this situation:

    You Started the same thread on your Apple Watch with a picture attached with same display problem in the same right lower corner on the display on May 1, 2017. In the thread, you stated it never “Saw more than a rainy day.“

    https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/strange-display-issue.2043883/


    And now today, March 1 2018 , you are saying you’re experiencing the same problem again on the same exact location on your Apple Watch, which you said it never was exposed to any water, but in the other thread you said it saw a rainy day.

    Is this completely coincidental of the same Day of the month or can you explain this further? I’m Not being accusatory of anything, I’m just genuinely confused here. I’m also assuming this is the exact same Apple Watch as well. Which others told you that thread I listed above that it is water/Moisture damage, which in fact it is.

    What iteration of AW is yours? On the May 2017 post you said "for months", so unless you had issues almost immediately it could be possible that you have the 1st generation (so-called Series 0) Apple Watch. I've seen this (yes, it's the water damage) happen on my Series 0 before and it's likely due to the fact that it has weaker water resistance.

    I believe the OP has a first Generation Apple Watch. Which is only splash resistant Rated at IPX7.
