My Fitbit Ionic Is Irritating The Skin On My Wrist.

I noticed ‘it’ on Friday. I had been wearing it for 8 days — and never too tight.

Irritating my skin takes some doing. Rhinoceros hide feels supple and soft compared to my skin. I don’t get bit much by mosquitoes because they can’t penetrate my skin. So, I really am thick skinned.

I wore multiple Garmins on the same wrist for 7 months and never saw a reaction. Also do not have a problem with my Samsung S3 Frontier.

And NO, I have not changed soap and I do take off the watch and dry my wrist after I take a shower.

NOT a big deal. It doesn’t hurt and it only itches if I think about it. So, c’est la vie. The Fitbit Ionic and I are not meant for the longtime. My hope is to find a more rugged Garmin come April/May.

But, I will keep you posted.
