    Hey guys. I picked up an Apple Sport Watch a few days ago with my Christmas money and so far I've really been enjoying it. One thing I noticed on it right out of the box though were these very tiny bumps on the back of the watch where the sensor is. I tried searching for any other cases of this but couldn't find anything. I attached a photo where you can clearly see them. I'm still within the return window so I'm wondering if I should go swap it out for a new one. I'd like to get some opinions here or see if anyone else's watch has the same bumps. Also, this might just be my OCD for electronics, but after removing the bands to clean them and clicking them back in they seem to move around more than before? They used to stay solidly in place with zero give, but if I grab the band and move it around a bit, now it has a tiny bit of jiggle. Is this normal too?

    that looks like a defect. Take it to the Apple store to be looked at.

    Movement in the band is normal, the little bumps are not. Return it for a refund and buy another before the return date goes by.

    Standing in the customer care line at BB now to swap it out. Thanks for your replies guys, I figured it wasn't normal. I'll edit this post with an update after hopefully getting a nice shiny new one with no bumps lol.

    EDIT: New watch is flawless! The guy at BB quickly saw the bumps too and agreed that it wasn't normal. Exchange went super smoothly as well as syncing the back up. I always seem to have crappy luck when it comes to buying new tech, and it's always a hassle to go and exchange it, but I'm really glad I did. Now I can enjoy my new watch care free. Thanks again guys.

    Yeah I've never seen a photo of bumps like that on the Sport sensor back. Too bad quality control didn't pick that up. Look forward to seeing how your return went at Best Buy.
