Samsung galaxy watch causing pain

I'm just curious if anyone else has had any pain in their wrist, arm, and fingers when wearing the new Galaxy Watch LTE 42mm? I've had mine since the 29th or April, and over time it has gone from a tingle to full on nerve pain. My wrist aches and pain shoots up to my elbow and down to my pinky finger. It slowly subsides when I take my watch off. It's not too tight or too loose (I was constantly changing the tightness thinking this was the issue) I would never have thought a watch could cause this pain but after searching the net there seems to be a few people with the same reports from other smart watches. Could the sensors cause something like this?

I have been having the same reaction to the watch. I haven't been able to wear it for the past 2 weeks. I get a numb/ tingling feeling at my hand and my finger tips.

I'm noticing the same thing. I just got a Samsung gear s3 and have been having pain all thru my arm when I'm wearing it. And have been adjusting it as well and it hasn't helped except to just  take it off

My watch does the same thing.  Hurts bad enough I have to periodically take my watch off.
