    IMG_0008.JPG IMG_0009.JPG Received my Apple Watch earlier this week and I'm loving it so far :)
    It's pretty fast and I'm quite happy with the battery life. After playing with it all day, it still has around 40% left when I get home in the evening.

    However, I noticed that there is a gap between the screen and the body (as shown in the pics attached). I wouldn't have paid attention to it but there is visible dust build-up already.

    Is every SS Apple Watch like this? Do I just need to clean out the dust every so often? I really hope mine isn't defective :(

    I don't see pictures. But based in your description this seems abnormal.

    Interesting. Do you get dusts stuck in there too? If so, how do you clean them out?

    Im very OCD about stuff i own, so i usually clean everything every day, but either a wet wipe or windex and a microfiber towel, and air blast it with compressed air. Haven't seen any dust with owning it

    OCD here too. I hate to see the build up so I guess I'll give it a quick clean up every time I charge it

    I clean mine with a sponge and warm water. It removes the dust etc caught there. I don't think there is any gap difference on the two watches I have. Tolerable variances is what it is. It's the same with all devices with gaps like this...look at the edge of black faced iPhones - dust galore, but you cannot take a sponge and running water to them.
