Did anyone else have a horrible skin reaction to the Wyze Watch? It burned my skin and caused my skin to peel. I have not worn it in a week and my arm is still not completely healed.
I had the same problem, I no longer sleep in it.
I also as well had a bad reaction
I have not had any skin irritation caused by the watches.
Do you know if the skin irritation caused by the band rubbing or an allergic reaction to the silicone band?
You can buy replacement bands. Wyze watch bands are standard 22mm watch bands.
I have not had such a reaction personally, and I have 3 Wyze time pieces on my arm ATM for testing (Band, 44, & 47). So, individual allergic sensitivities may apply here.
I look like a watch street vendor, lol. “Wanna buy a watch?”
Same here. If I take it off every few days for a day or two it prevents this.
Re: Rash from Wyze wrist band.
I notice four red bruised dots like a heat rash on my wrist and it is due to the Wyze sylicone band since i would wear it day and night.
Now i cannot wear it because the bruse is not healing.
I will switch to my other hand and see what happens. I also noticed dead skin cells stick to the sylicon wrist band and it is difficult to wash off.
I love my Wyze watch and am married to it but I will divorce it if this problem continues. Hmmmmmm… $17 for a leather watch band onto a $20 watch? Might be the solution since leather is Breathable.
I had something similar but found loosening the strap solved the issue. I wear mine day and night but take it off when showering. Now I keep my watch just snug against my wrist but I can easily spin it to reposition the watch, and as far as I know all my sensor readings have been the same.
I had what looks like a chemical burn also. Swapped the band out to a nylon style band and haven’t had any issues.
My wrist was Gray! !-on the solid side but not on the punched side . Wore 24/7 monitoring irregular heartbeat. For medical reasons.
Chinese plastic…My watch is in the draw and staying there.
3 posts were split to a new topic: Replacement Band for Wyze Watch
Yeah the products keep getting worse and worse with Wyze don’t they
Also have a reaction, taking it off for a day or two cleared this up for me when I was wearing the watch. But it’s not so much bumps as it looks like rubbing irritation. I’ve tried loose and tight.
As far as buying a different band… This watch isn’t worth the money (however low the price was) in the first place. Much less so if I also have to buy a different band.
I take it out every once in a while when I see a new firmware came out, but that’s not incredibly often.
Why mine is in the draw…This Company needs to Focus on a Core Product line (and get it RIGHT!!!)…At this point Wyze is a Toy Company.
Ditto. Same here!
I wear my 47mostly 24/7. Seems to be the lack of “breathing” due to the smooth silicon. My irritation seems to occur right where the small :retainer band (that holds the excess strap down) sits.
My solution is to order a set of 3 different color nylon bands from Amazon for $11 to use on this and a couple other watches that I wear.
The Wyze Watch has proven to be very useful as I recover from hip replacement surgery - especially for monitoring quality of sleep as I recover.
I would contact a lawyer
Please submit this to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
I’ve never had a skin reaction with any silicone watch strap, until I got the Wyze Band. I can’t even wear it anymore and because of this decided against buying the Wyze Watch. Considering their ties with China I have no doubt their straps are not 100% silicone, at least not medical grade silicone. And too many people are having skin issues from them for it to be a coincident. Remember, it wasn’t that long ago that Chinese made baby toy products were found to have lead in them. And I doubt their practice has changed much. Look, I don’t care where a product is manufactured as long as it’s safe. And as I said, I’ve never had a skin reaction to a silicone watch strap before until I got my Wyze Band. And at first I didn’t the people that were having skin issues from the straps, until it happened to me.
