LG fixes G Watch charging flaw that can irritate your skin

Whatever you think of LG's G Watch, it has a flaw that can get under your skin a little too literally. Wearers have noticed that its charging pins maintain a current even when they're on a sweaty wrist, triggering corrosion, skin irritation and even minor burns. Thankfully, some relief is at hand. Both LG and Google have confirmed to Android Police that they're rolling out an over-the-air fix which turns the current off unless the Android Wear gadget is sitting in its charging cradle. The companies say that only a "small number" of G Watches have produced this problem, so your arm isn't likely to be in danger. However, it's safe to say that the patch can't come soon enough -- it's not often that code can damage both people and their devices.
