Is Your Apple Watch Giving you a Rash?

Is Your Apple Watch Giving you a Rash?

They don't want you to know that there has been an increasing number of people reporting that their Apple Watch has been giving them a rash after extended use. People have also reported an irritation so bad that it resembled a burn in more severe cases.

Apple claims that these watches are not "heating up" and this irritation is related to elements used in their watches, watch bands, and other watches such as nickel that people can be reactive too. 

Furthermore, stating that "other factors such as soap or sweat" could lead to an irritation, keep in mind that these are two things that are near unavoidable in everyday life.

A simple Google search, shows instances of this as far back as 2015, with the company failing to acknowledge any fault. Again stating that the issues could be due to wearing the watch too tight or too loose in daily wear.

With our background and experience, the elephant in the room that is being ignored, is that our bodies are simply not designed to have constant exposure to technology. Holding our phones and carrying them already hold its own unknowns, let alone a watch that is constantly being pressed against us.

These watches are so much more than a watch ever was, with the latest versions holding the computing power and constant cellular, wireless, and bluetooth signals being sent out and received.

If you have one, or are considering one, we recommend looking at the SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) of your watch to get eyes on the Apples "recommended distance from your body." In layman's terms these devices are not expected to be placed directly on our skin and this is how your body absorbs the energy that is being sent out and received by the device.
