Thx for all the ppl with this brilliant idea. I got a Pebble Steel brand new 1 weeks ago, within 1 hour it started to show flickering,tearing issues (I didn’t install fancy Apps or Watchface like Yweather etc , only Misfit, Timer+). Though every time the issue occurs,I just randomly press the buttons, it disappears within seconds. But it is really annoying especially it starts at the very first beginning. So after one week, it looks like the issue will never disappear by itself and I also filed a RMA to Pebble (Thx a lot Pebble, for your prompt respond). 2 days ago I bought Torex No.4 screw driver with some tape, spent 5 mins to hack it. Now it is already 2 full days, the corrupted screen never shows again (Previously it showed average at least 10 times a day or even 20+ times within one hour). What’s the theory behind the hack I really don’t know. I even don’t know actually the tape helped on which parts in the watch ( The black chip on the motherboard or the black foam near the bottom edge?). But it solves the problem and so far so good. So thanks again for ppl came out this great idea and showed the pics of hacking at here.
One last thing is the Watch is still water resistant (or water proof)? I tired when I took shower, it is fine. Swimming? I don’t know yet.
It looks like not so many Classic Pebble suffer this issue, I might be not that lucky. But luckily with the great idea and RMA support, I can do it without worries. Thx fellow Pebble owners and thx Pebble Customer Service. Happy New Year 2016! Cheers!
