Bring it to your local service centre and have it inspected.

Try resetting the SWR30

Then I agree with @SMRTLim, it might be a hardware issue, contact your Local support to get it inspected.

Re: e-ink display become unreadable swr30

Same here, after 1 year the display become unreadable. Is it the weakness of e-ink? Low lifetime?

Re: e-ink display become unreadable swr30

I had the same problem with an old smartwatch I had, found this solution and it works.  Just one minute in the refrigerator solved the problem.  I guess with more time it becomes darker...  But just one minute was enough to get it back to life.  Thanks!
