The reason for this was a new mechanism for fastening the belt, which, according to the company’s plan, was supposed to simplify the replacement process.
Samsung has implemented the quick strap release button by replacing the traditional pins with 20mm pins.
Apparently this button can be easily pressed by the wrist bones, causing the strap to accidentally come off. Users on Reddit and YouTube have already shared their experiences and even posted videos demonstrating this issue.
The most interesting thing is that the problem occurs even during normal use of the watch without any special movements or sports activities. This calls into question the functionality of a watch designed to monitor user activity.
