Why my skin shows irritation while using Gear Sport?

• When you wear the Gear for a long time, skin irritation may occur due to friction and pressure. If you wearing your Gear for a long time, remove the Gear from your wrist and do not wear your Gear for several hours. 


• Skin irritation may occur due to an allergy, environment factors, other factors, or when your skin is exposed to soap or sweat for long periods. In this case, stop using your Gear and wait 2 or 3 days for the symptoms to ease. If the symptoms persist or worsen, immediately call your doctor. Also make sure your skin is dry before wearing your Gear. 


• If you wear a wet Gear for a longtime, your skin may be affected. If you use your Gear in the water, remove foreign materials from your skin and Gear and dry them thoroughly to prevent the skin irritation.  


Tips for cleaning and managing the Gear


• Do not use soap, cleaning agents, abrasive materials and compressed air when cleaning your Gear and do not clean it with the ultrasonic waves or the external heat sources.

Doing so may damage the Gear. Skin irritation may be caused by soap, detergents hand sanitizers, or cleaning agents left on the Gear.


• Clean your wrist and band after exercising or sweating. Clean the Gear with freshwater, wipe it with a little rubbing alcohol and dry your Gear thoroughly.


• When you remove sun block, lotion, or oil, use a soap-free detergent, then rinse and dry your Gear thoroughly.


• If the Gear gets stained or contains any materials, wipe it with a moistened soft bristle toothbrush/brush.
