All of them seem to have issues in the same sort of region.
The report also revealed that the common occurrence of the issue is above the display connectors, between the digital crown and Taptic Engine. Moreover, there are no teardowns videos of the Watch SE Yet, the post speculates that Apple re-uses the designs of the older models. Also, this probably made them say that the area is far from the battery department.
In one of the cases, the watch was hot to the touch just hours after purchasing it. The other in the other two cases say that the watch got so much hot that it turned the wrist red and burnt before taking it off from the wrist. For one of these wrist burns issues, Apple Headquarters will reportedly respond in a few days. Moreover, a few others got a refund from the Apple Store.
