Sorry to debase your obviously uninformed thesis. As the pic I included in the post indicates, the rash does not appear anywhere near the metal pieces of the watch. It only appears around the wristband ( and not the metal parts of the wristband). The reaction has to do with the chemical compounds in the wristband, not any metal.
I can't really understand what Samsung used to save half a millicent for this watchstrap.. I just wrote them as I'm also totally negative to allergies and my rash after 4/5 of use.. are warring me even more..
If they won't answer me I'll formalize a report to my local healt agency
I have had the watch for a year now and only wear it once or twice a day. From week 1 I had rashes and itchiness. It's getting worse now. I am back to my G-Shock. £120 watch belt is better then £400 watch. Has anyone tried changing belts? Does it help
I have the exact same problem. Oddly enough I was fine during the winter months but as soon as the weather broke I developed 3 rashes. My wrist look horrible and it's embarrassing bc I'm a photographer and it really stands out.
