Comments from the Manufacturer/Private Labeler
  • Fitbit is aware that skin irritation affects a very limited number of consumers who use wearable devices all day and all night from sweat, water, or soap being held against the skin under the device, or from pressure or friction against the skin. We encourage users to follow our wear and care instructions, available at If any users are experiencing skin irritation we encourage them to remove the device to give their wrist a rest. If symptoms persist longer than 2-3 days after removing the device, users should contact a dermatologist/their doctor. Fitbit takes every complaint very seriously. If you have provided contact information, a Customer Support agent will contact you within 7 days. Otherwise please contact us at
