Received my new Galaxy watch and wore it for the first time yesterday for about 10 hours. My wrist began itching shortly after putting it on for the first time and it didn't stop. It was torture wearing it but I was out and about and afraid I would lose it if I don't look it off. Today, I have tried again and it was on for 3 hours before I could no longer stand it. It not only itches but also burns and leaves a bright red rash with rain seed bumps, all in the exact shape of the band. I have read a few posts about cleaning it with alcohol, etc and will try this later. I am very disappointed in Samsung for not addressing this with their customers. I am a loyal Samsung user and feel there should be not only a solution but the reason as to why this is happening. There certainly wasn't literature included with my new watch about cleaning anything prior to use. I paid a lot of money to suffer.
