    Yes, I've had this ever since I got the Steel HR and then later the Sport HR. Doesn't seem to bother me though as it is not painful or in any way more sensitive. But yes, looks like mildly burnt. Short term - no discomfort, long term - who knows...?

    Did this happen to you every time you wore it? Or is it a rare occurrence? I'm wondering if was some soap that got in between the sensor and my skin that triggered a burn

    It's like permanent for me now. And certainly not caused by soap. I guess if I stopped wearing the watch it will disappear over time

    I had this happen too - specifically under the sensor. I’ve had my steel hr for years (and an activity pop before) but this issue only started happening this August. I am so baffled; I can’t figure out anything that I changed up. The rash lasts for a few days once I stop wearing the watch (which I do t want!)

    I've only got my Steel HR in July, so just over 3 months ago.
    I wasn't aware of any allergy but about a month ago, I've started to notice the skin drying under the watch (not the band!) and now I can see some light skin lesions! I've moved the watch up the arm but it would be good to have some feedback from Withings. I don't really want to stop using the watch!
