When Apple had issues with reception quality on its iPhone 4, the company’s reaction to the problem was that customers were holding it wrong. Which makes this story all the more humorous. Canadian Annie Hoang had been wearing her Apple Watch for 7 hours and decided to take it off. To her shock she found what appeared to be a burn on her wrist. After contacting Apple the company responded by saying the Apple Watch burn was caused by wearing it wrong.
They said I was wearing it wrong, too tightly, or that maybe I had a skin irritation. I’d had it for three months. If I wore it too tightly then it would have happened beforehand. I think it’s because it was the first time it had been exposed to the sun.
The company offered her a new watch but Hoang declined and asked for a refund. Hoang’s case isn’t anything new, many people have complained about the watch burning them or irritating their skin. It’s very possible there is something in the materials being used in the watches construction that could cause allergic reactions for some people.
Not worn my apple watch today, yet there seems to be some sort of burn. Anyone else got this too ? pic.twitter.com/di51Kt4W20

As far as we can tell, Apple has had no official comment on the matter of Apple Watch burns or irritation. But it’s likely that the cause isn’t because the users are wearing it wrong. It is likely that most these people are experiencing an allergic reaction to the materials in the watch not actual burns from the watch.
