    I've never experienced any reaction with my Steel HR wristband, for the past 6 months now. I try to clean the band regularly as I tend to sweat too much using warm water and I think the hypoallergenic soap helped a lot. If this is not the same case for you, try to contact one of their Withings folks through this link: https://support.withings.com/hc/en-us/requests/new.

    I purchased the scanwatch 1 month ago with plastic wristbands. I did not use to wear watch since a long time! I recently developed  a red rash under the wristband too. I suppose it could be linked with my sweat. Would you recommend a different type of wristbands for sport or the sunny day?

    I frequently had this problem.  The only solution I have is to push the watch down looser towards my hand when I'm not exercising or sleeping.  And I switch arms each day.

    I was having this same issue so I switched to the leather wristband and now I'm only getting a rash under the buckle (sometimes I get it directly under the watch but very rarely). It seems to flare up only after working out or usual sweating in the summer weather.
    I take it off daily to wash both my watch/band and wrists 1-2 times a day but hate to have to wet leather so frequently (and pricey too!).. the rash takes about a week to subside so I just keep switching wrists...
    I just ordered a canvas band from Barton Watch Bands that uses a stainless steel buckle. Fingers crossed because I LOVE my watch but don't want it to negatively impact my skin health or give me scars from the rashes.
