    I have a series 2 Nike + space gray 42mm and the screen shows small wavy lines in the middle of the screen when you fog it with your mouth! Look at photos! I wipped it and tried to clean it and to see if they are scratches by going over it with my nails to feel but it looks like micro CRACKS/FRACTURES from the underside of the screen. My warranty ends on Dec 26.

    Anyone has this?

    Honestly, it looks like a fingerprint from touching the display consistently enough that it's worn away the oleophobic coating. I have never observed or heard of any type of fracturing from underneath the display. It could be a separation of the laminate.

    After further researching this, The only other thing that I believe it possibly could be, isa laminating issue under the OLED display. You won't have an option but to make a Genius appointment to see if it's something that they can replace or not.
