Android Police noticed a number of stories of the again panels of some Pixel Watches simply falling off. A couple of posts on the PixelWatch subreddit have photographs of this phenomenon; a number of commenters say it occurred to them, too.

You even have a robust argument should you contact Google assist a few system that has fallen aside. The scary factor is that this will even compromise the system’s water resistance, and we doubt Google is overlaying each occasion of water harm. Most stories point out Google is taking good care of the issue, however a number of customers had been initially threatened with a $300 restore charge, which was later waived.
