• Prolonged rubbing and pressure may irritate the skin, so give your wrist a break by removing the band for an hour after extended wear. • If you have eczema, allergies or asthma you may be more likely to experience a skin irritation or allergy from a wearable device. • Whether you have the conditions above or not, if you start to experience redness or skin irritation on your wrist, remove your device. If symptoms persist longer than 2-3 days of not using your device, contact a dermatologist. • If you sweat for more than two hours while wearing your Fitbit band, be sure to wash your band and your wrist using the directions above to avoid skin irritation.
• Make sure your band isn’t too tight. Wear the band loosely enough that it can move back and forth on your wrist. • If you use Fitbit Charge HR , Fitbit Blaze or Fitbit Surge , for better heart rate readings during exercise, we suggest wearing the band so it’s secure, but not too tight, and wearing the band higher on your wrist (about 2-3 finger widths above your wrist bone). Lower the band on your wrist and loosen it after exercise.
• While Fitbit devices are water resistant*, it’s not good for your skin to wear a wet band for long periods of time. • If your elastomer band gets wet—like after sweating or showering—rinse and dry it thoroughly before putting it back on your wrist. • Be sure your skin is dry before you put your band back on. If Fitbit Blaze gets wet or if you sweat in it, remove and completely dry the band before putting it back on. Give your wrist a rest by taking the band off every now and then, and regularly clean your band and wrist. • Even though Fitbit Flex 2 is swim-proof, it’s important to thoroughly dry your classic elastomer band and tracker, and remove any debris from your device after wear in the water, to avoid skin irritation. Please note that non-elastomer accessories should not be worn in water.
