Since I got my 38 mm SS Sport Black Band watch on the 24th I've had about three times when I removed it from the charger and it was very hot to the touch. Usually it's just slightly warm. There are no other problems with it, everything works reliably and fit and finish are flawless. I usually charge it at bedtime when it's usually around 35%. A couple of times I topped it off during the day after I've been working outside and came in to take a shower. One of the instances of hot watch was after an overnight charge and the other was after a short-top off. I know there was a third time but can't remember the situation. I've not had any problems with the watch except once when I inexplicably lost my friends/contacts and had to unpair and re-pair the watch to my phone. I can't remember if that was after a hot charge. What causes the watch to get hot during charges? Am I doing something wrong? I charge it by placing it on the C-shaped holder and setting it down sideways into the indentation in the box it came packaged in. I snap the charger to the back and leave it overnight. I've seen pictures of other forum members doing the same. I didn't think to ask about this before because there were no other malfunctions and I'm not the type to fret or question until something really obviously goes wrong and I can't work out a remedy. But since my husband's watch arrived he's not had an instance of this so my concern is piqued a bit. I did a quick forum search and the only other mention seems associated with a malfunction.
