Some reports mentioned about the corroded terminal pins on the back of the LG G Watch, which may cause discomfort for users.
To solve the issue, the folks at LG are rolling out an update, which brings a fix for this issue. There’s no official change log available for the update, but it bumps the build number from KMV78V to KMV78Y.
LG says a small number of devices have been reported to have corrosion buildup on the back pins, but it’s completely safe and unlikely to affect charging. The LG rep also mentioned that an OTA will be release which will disable the current when the G Watch is on the charging dock, fixing the issue as a result. This move will stop the corrosion process, which is when the current runs through two materials and an electrolyte (your skin), resulting in a feeling of discomfort and corrosion on the pins.
Here’s what LG has to say about the issue:
Recently it has come to our attention that a small number of G Watch devices have been reported to have developed discoloration and residue buildup on the terminal pins located on the back. While completely safe and unlikely to affect charging, LG will be rolling out a maintenance release over the next few days that will disable the current when the G Watch is not in the charging dock. The maintenance release will be rolled out automatically over-the-air to all G Watch owners. We thank G Watch users for their patience and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Just keep an eye on the update and let us know if you’ve received it. Also mention if you can notice any other improvement with the update.
