I'm having an issue with my Gear Live : sometimes the screen won't turn off (or dim) by itself. when I stop using it it will just dim slightly but still display the whole watch face and not get as dark as when it dims properly. It seems to happen randomly after I use it (with an "OK google" command or something) and then it will only turn off if I use the button or cover the screen. From the moment it starts acting up, it will never turn off automatically untill I reboot the watch...

Has any one else experienced this, or even have a solution ?
I hoped today's update would fix the problem but it didn't, so it keeps happily eating all the battery if I don't pay attention.

My wife and I each have a Gear Live. We've experienced this problem repeatedly over the last 2 years. Restarting the watch fixes the problem temporarily. Sometimes the problem will go away for months on end. Other times it happens over and for over days. I'm guessing it's some kind of hardware fluke on the Gear Live.
