I have also been burned by gear fit2. Several times. After several weeks of healing, I tried a few things. Turned off auto check pulse rate. Covered laser with bandaid. But green laser is to strong and gets thru semi opaque thin plastic bandaid. Also makes charging difficult. Best solution I can think of is cover laser area with black liquid plastic. Might work. It would be best if Samsung would let us turn off laser altogether. I don't need my pulse checked.
