If you're experiencing discomfort or skin irritation when wearing your Samsung smartwatch, it's time for a clean. Residue or foreign materials may have built up on the watch, causing skin irritation. It's also possible that you're not wearing the watch correctly. Follow these steps to clean and adjust your watch for a more comfortable fit.

Caution: If you experience severe skin irritation while wearing the watch, discontinue use and wait two to three days for symptoms to ease. If symptoms persist or worsen, consult a physician.

Clean your wrist and the watch strap or band: After exercising or sweating, clean your wrist and the watch strap or band with a soft, lint-free cloth, and make sure it's thoroughly dry.

Avoid certain cleaning substances and products: Do not use soap, cleaning agents, abrasive materials, or compressed air to clean your watch, as these can cause skin irritation. Moisture or residue on the back of your watch can lead to charging issues and skin irritation.

To maintain optimal performance and prevent skin irritation, keep your watch dry. When it gets wet, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth, including the charging surface on the back of the watch before attaching it to a charger or wearing it.

Important: Avoid exposing your watch to high-pressure water and very wet conditions, as this can cause skin irritation. If your watch comes into contact with liquids other than fresh water, rinse it with fresh water immediately and dry it thoroughly. Your watch is not completely waterproof in all situations.

To ensure a comfortable fit, follow these steps when putting on your Samsung smartwatch:

  1. Center the watch on top of your wrist.

  2. Slide the end of the strap or band through the loop.

  3. Fit the strap or band to your wrist.

  4. Firmly insert the pin into the adjustment hole, ensuring it's fully inserted.

  5. Avoid over tightening the strap or band.

Important notes:

  • Do not excessively bend the strap or band, and avoid bracing your watch against your body or a table. If you have sensitive skin or allergies to certain materials, take necessary precautions.

  • Wearing the watch too tightly or on sensitive skin may cause discomfort.
