We saw it happen with FitBit. We saw it happen with the iPad. So it should come as no surprise that the same allergic reaction is now happening to people with the Apple Watch.
A slew of people have taken to Twitter and Instagram to show off their Apple Watch burns, hoping to get a response from Apple. See a few examples below:

Turns out, there is nickel in the Apple Watch, which is one of the most common allergy-inducing metals. If the rash is being caused by the band, you can replace the band with plenty of other models made from different materials. Otherwise, you might want to consult with a doctor before you continue to wear the Apple Watch.
