Could hairy arms pose problems for the Apple Watch?

One of the biggest features behind the Apple Watch is its health-tracking capabilities. If you followed any of my iOS 8 coverage, then you'll know that Apple has pushed iOS 8's health tracking features to no end.

There's a major problem in the Apple Watch and it involves arm hair. That's right, arm hair.

The Apple Watch's health tracking sensors have some issues, as the Daily Mail reports:

According to reports, Apple experimented with sensors that measured conductivity of the skin to track stress levels and monitor heart-rate, but 'these features didn't perform consistently on some people, including those with hairy arms or dry skin'.

Want to hear the crazy part? Apple has still ordered 6 million of the sensors from suppliers. Hairy armed Apple fans, beware.
