I've had my Apple Watch Sport since June & now all of a sudden I've got a itchy rash on my wrist. This is the only wearable I wear I've got the black sport band & it also leaves red marks on my wrist. ImageUploadedByiMore Forums1448984085.389517.jpg

How often are you cleaning your band? Is there getting water in between the band and your wrist when you wash your hands?

I have really sensitive skin so I have to take my watches off to dry after rest room runs. And clean my bands often.

I've worn my Watch Sport since getting it back in May and I've yet to develop a rash or anything from wearing it. As stated above, try keeping that area as dry as possible? Also, are you wearing it too tight?

Same problem here I had gotten a while one from Amazon and it did that then also the apple one did as well so I just clean it like every second day!! Got some anti-itch lotion that I use over night and it's helping!!

I do too! Try cleaning it every other day also anti each lotion, I get them from the apple band and then the one I got from Amazon! But for now it's gotten better but it looked just like yours! Try putting cream on over night! It's helping me

I'll echo the comments about keeping the band(s) clean and dry under there. Good luck!

Maybe having a reaction to the metal? That's better than having a reaction to the silicone!

I think that's what it is Because it's not all the way round it's just that one spot I get red mark and itch, I still itch a lil so I'm not 100% sure

There are many reasons of getting such red marks like if you are wearing apple watches for long hours, some red rashes can appear on your hand. My father-in-law has been using this watch for long time. Some time they get red rash on their hand but not often. So, I think apple should take off this drawback from their watch so that their brand name could not get spoiled.
