My new watch is giving me a rash

My new watch that I ordered from Amazon is giving me a rash on my left wrist where I strap it on.
I’m so bummed because now I have to return it.
No more watches for me, from now in I’ll continue using my iPhone for the time.

Oh well, lesson learned

It may depend on how well you love this watch, but they make a product called Nickel Guard (or my brother used to just use clear nail polish). You put a coat on the offending metal and it protects the skin and thus no rash. My brother had to coat his belt buckles because of a metal allergy. Just an option if you really really love the watch but need to protect your skin from the metal.

You could try a different band material. I where most mine on fabric. They have rubber, fabric, and leather.

I think that it might be the watch face that I’m allergic to.
Could be nickel I don’t know.

I use deodorant on my wrist to keep my watch from feeling uncomfortable from the sweat, works for me.
