Evidently the last update pushed out to the GWs 4-6 introduced a bug of some sort to the screen on some of the Galaxy Watch 6 and Galaxy Watch 6 Classic .
Evidently those that got the bug had major issues , so much so Samsung who is infamous for ignoring bug reports until regular update occur , put pushed an update to GW6 and GW6Cs only . This is akin to the bug introduced into the GW4s in 2022 that turned them into a paperweight if you let the battery go fully discharged . Samsung pushed a fix out within weeks of the first report as most watches being returned for fix were still under warranty .
For what it's worth my GW6 screen is notably more sensitive to touch than before.

Something else it turns out Samsung "accidentally" fixed with this update was the ability to play custom ringtones . You can download them onto the watch , they will play fine for an alarm tone but if you get an actual phone call it plays a stock tone .
Custom notifications still work fine so I guess they missed that "bug" .
