Hero 7 - Changing settings by itself when in water touch the screen

I bought the Hero7 Black yesterday.
Awesome device!

 

But when I entered into the water the settings changed by itself...
So I noticed that all the times that the water touch the LCD screen the menu changes... change from video to photo mode.. and other settings.

 

Actually this is very annoying! :(
Is that a defective or is it ok?

 

Thank you!

Yes, you are right... actually I looked for at manual but i didn't find something about that GoPro caracteristics... as I said I tought that was defective... The touch screen is great but it has some drawbacks... anyway Hero7 is a great pice of thecnology!
