Samsung has introduced several enhancements to the Galaxy Watch 6 series smartwatch this year. 

Shocking! Samsung Galaxy 6 Watches Are Falling Off Wrists Due To Faulty Straps.. Complaints Rise Across Social Media

These upgrades include a rotating bezel for navigation and a new strap attachment system called the “One-click system.” 

Let’s find out all the details about the new updates!

Samsung Introduces New Upgrades in Galaxy Watch 6

In the past, users needed to pull back a pin to attach or detach the strap, but the Galaxy Watch 6 now employs a button for this purpose. This change simplifies and speeds up the process of changing straps, and it’s also compatible with older smartwatches.

However, some owners of the Galaxy Watch 6 series have encountered an issue with the new straps, which can unintentionally detach. This concern has been brought to attention in a Reddit thread, where users have pointed out that the new one-click strap mechanism may have a design flaw.

Specifically, for users with prominent wrist bones, the quick-release button on the new strap can be inadvertently pressed, leading to the strap coming off the watch. This has resulted in some watches falling off people’s wrists, especially during physical activities.

Steps You Can Take To Stop Watch From Detaching

A video shared on YouTube illustrates how the wrist bone can press the quick-release button, particularly if the watch is worn snugly and positioned below the wrist bone. While some users have suggested wearing the watch above the wrist bone, others find this uncomfortable or not always feasible.

Samsung has not yet commented on this issue. However, there are some steps that users can take to prevent their watches from detaching. One option is to wear the watch slightly looser, reducing the likelihood of accidentally pressing the quick-release button. Another solution is to use a different strap with a pin-based mechanism. Fortunately, the Galaxy Watch 6 supports the pin-based straps from the Galaxy Watch 5.

If you are considering purchasing the Galaxy Watch 6, it might be advisable to try it on in a physical store before making a decision. This way, you can evaluate the new strap mechanism’s comfort and functionality to determine if it suits your needs.
