Apple Watch: How to avoid skin irritation and allergies
We know that being premium doesn’t guarantee comfort. Here’s how to get rid of skin itchiness whenever you wear your Apple Watch.
Tips to avoid skin irritation, or if you have allergies or skin sensitivities
Wearing your Apple Watch with the right fit—not too tight, not too loose, and with room for your skin to breathe—will keep you comfortable.
Keeping your Apple Watch and bands—as well as your skin—clean and dry will maximize comfort and prevent long-term damage to the watch. This is especially important after workouts or exposure to liquids such as sweat, soap, sunscreen, and lotions that can cause skin irritations.
Pick the right Apple Watch and band. If you have known allergies or sensitivities to substances like metals or plastics, check the materials in each Apple Watch and band.
Many third parties make accessory bands for Apple Watch. Such bands may not fit properly, may interfere with the Apple Watch Wrist Detect feature, may contain materials that cause skin sensitivities or other health concerns, and may even damage Apple Watch. For best results, use only Apple branded or Apple authorized bands.
