Is it possible to disable the back light on the TomTom spark?

I went on a hiking holiday recently and found the battery life inconsistent. I got 6 hours with 30% remaining however the following day I noticed I was below 50% after just two hours.

The difference in the conditions was that the first day was dry and the second day was very wet. What I noticed was happening was that because my watch was wet and rubbing the inside of my coat this was activating the back light causing the battery drain. The only way I could slow the battery drain was to roll the sleeve on my coat up which wasn't ideal in the conditions.

Is there a way to prevent this or does anyone have any tips to reduce this happening?

    There is no way to disable the backlight altogether and since it is touch activated, wet clothing will activate it. There is no solution other than maybe keeping a dry wristband or something over it.
