I recently purchased a Galaxy Watch 4 and developed a red mark like sun burn on my wrist directly under the watch face. I keep the watch and my wrist clean, and do not wear the band too tight (or too loose). The first time it happened I dismissed it (1st image) and stopped wearing it while my skin healed. I have started wearing it again and was fine for week or so, but have again developed a red mark rather quickly, only a day or two (2nd image).  The only other similar post did not offer any solutions or answers, only a message pulling the conversation off the forum to a direct message. This concerns me, as I love my watch, but do not love what it is doing to my skin - please help!20220630_132558.jpg20221006_185146.jpg

Are those burns? Or some sort of allergic reaction?

They look and feel like a burn, not allergy.

Maybe Don't use samsungs and use apple's watch since it's actually safe, refund it fast. It's simply a rushed watch just like there phones they get very hot for no reason

Thanks...but spending more money and buying something else/switching my watch and phone to another brand isn't a helpful solution for me. Also, it seems like a sunburn, not a heat burn. So, if its possibly a burn from the light used in a sensor, I doubt this would help, as im sure that tech is similar in an apple watch.
