Skin rash/burn from wearing samsung watch

Ever since getting my galaxy watch, I've noticed a slight reaction where the back of the watch comes into contact with the skin. I figured it was just a heat rash and nothing to worry about
But recently I've found that whenever I wear my smart watch, I have red burn marks on my wrist from where the strap is touching my skin. These are not disappearing and are damaging my skin
I've never had this problem with any other smartwatch or regular watch

I notice that there are similar posts on other forums - what is samsung doing about this? 
Its a very expensive watch to find that I cannot wear it any more!!

I also have that problem with the silicon strap. I bought myself a leather strap from amazon. I don't have any problems now.

I'm having a similar problem. I'm wearing this new Galaxy Watch3 for about a month now...

This is the first time it happens to me. I had been wearing an older model of the galaxy watch for several years before.

Please advice...20210504_185143[1].jpg20210504_185207[1].jpg
