    Anyone had this problem ? I went swimming in the ocean for 5 mins, just on the surface (no diving) and the display stopped reacting to touch...
    Restarting and washing in the fresh water doesn't help. Is the damage permanent? I can't find any info online if this can be repaired...
    Does Samsung do a screen replacement?

    Salt water will corrode the circuitry. I think you may need more than a screen replacement

    It's very possible that the salt water damaged the watch. It has different properties than fresh water (for what it's rated). You can try to put it in a sealed bag with those silicon packets that lots of things ship with, or dry rice, overnight. See if it's just some dampness still in there. It sometimes helps.
