I've had the Active 2 for more than a year, but during the last month, such discomfort (burning like) has started.
First I was able to stand it all the day, then I had to start switching from one arm to another, this last week, I can stand it only 1-2 hours before having to change it from left to right or from top to bottom.
I haven't get any bruises nor any visual signs of burning, but the sensation is there and I'm sure is not related with the band.
Last day, I read a "workaround" about turning off health sensors, which I did, and although I still have the burning sensation in both arms from using it the past days, last day I was able to stand it for 6 hours without any increase on the discomfort.
I'd say turning the sensors off work, but then I got the smartwatch mainly because of the step counting and workouts 😞
NOTE: I'm hoping I raised the comment with the right team this time, because in another community I was told to share it with the UK team.
Hi Steven, thanks for your comment. I don't think this is related with a battery leaking problem.
I'm unsure whether you read the part where I mention that based on another's thread advice, I turned the health sensors off; and by doing so, I was able to stand the watch mostly the entire day.
Based on this, I'll say there is something happening with the sensors, I'll give it a try for a couple of days more with the sensors off and see if the discomfort goes away totally.
Thanks again for you input

I don't think this is related to the way I wear it, I mean, not sure whether you noticed in my original post: I've been wearing this watch for a year and a couple of months, and it's only last month that the discomfort started little by little.
