Yes, I got rid of the band, and replaced it with a 2-pack I found on Amazon, and haven't had any rash whatsoever. Samsung will not replace the band, or do anything to help.
Unfortunately, no. I've just been trying to dry it after getting it wet & not wearing it so much. Not wearing it so much has made the red appear less, but my skin there is still dry.
I have experienced the same rash issue. It has left me using the watch for primarily a sleep monitor. I have had countless Timex Ironman, Casio G-Shock and other "active" watches with what I would characterize as rubber or plastic watch bands. I could wear those 24/7 for months at a time without any rash. I still wear a couple of them to see if I've developed any skin sensitivity but have no rash with these other watches. What materials are in the watch strap that comes standard with the Gear S3 Frontier? Does it contain any latex or silicone? Thanks!
Same here. It's the watch face for me. I haven't worn my watch for 2 full days and this is how the spot looks. It reminds me of a flat scar where the skin is shinier and darker. In the photo it has a red tint, but in person it's a darker tint of my skin tone. It's as if my skin was literally burned. I did not have any rash from my previous smart watch, which was a generic one from Amazon. I love my Active2, but this is concerning.
