I've had my watch for 3 weeks. The rash initially developed under the band, but I just figured I had an allergy to something in the band. I ordered this new metal breathable band on Amazon. It came with another metal band as well, and I think they cost $17. That solved my issue on the wrist, and it's healing fine. Now the rash is developing under the face of the watch. It's welted up, very itchy, and weeping. These pictures don't do it justice. I wish I had done my research before buying it. Aside from the rash issues, I love the watch!
Exactly the same never had a problem with my Apple watch or any other my wife bought me the galaxy watch for Xmas 2018 I only where it Friday to Sunday yet have this burn mark the itches every time I take it off Sunday evening.
I took this picture this morning after not putting it on for a whole day still there absolute joke £300 for a watch I can't wear
I also have been developing a rash with my Galaxy watch. It is the 46 mm size. The rashes on the inside of my wrist. I don't have any allergies other than hay fever. I've never been tested for latex but somebody here mentioned the possibility of there being latex in the strap. I would like to know what Samsung is planning to do about this problem. Will they offer free replacement straps? That would be the best solution. Please reply thank you.
Here is a photo from today.
Had my galaxy gear sport since Christmas and this week i developed a rash on the outside of my wrist. Changed it to my other wrist and after just 24 hours that is getting itchy and red. I wear my watch at nights too, to monitor my sleep.
