Fitness Trackers & Skin
Is your fitness tracker causing skin irritation? Unfortunately, the underside of your watch and band is the perfect environment for bacteria to flourish, which can cause skin irritation and infection. On top of that, when an item is constantly creating friction, the skin’s acid mantle is disrupted, making the skin more sensitive to metals, leathers, and plastics. The solution? Avoid wearing it every day. Or, if you can’t bear to part with your tracker, try switching wrists to minimize rashes.
