I have been experiencing weird skin peeling and rashes from my Vivosmart 4 rubber strap. This is really strange to me, as I've always worn my watches 24/7 (various standard watches with rubber, metal and leather bands, an Apple watch (Steel model with rubber band), a fit bit (Time, rubber band). Never had any issues.
I've switched wrists and I would start getting the same kind of rash and peel within 3 or 4 days. Tried to report and consult with Garmin support, but no response from them after a lengthy email detailing the problem and there is no answer on the phone number.
I am somewhat upset with spending a lot of money on something that is supposed to be extensively tested against issues. There is also a horrible smell whenever I wear the watch. No matter how often I clean it and my wrist!
Has anyone else experienced those issues?
P.S - Over the last two months I've read through the recommendations, such as wearing it loose, etc. Results are mostly the same.
