One of the users of the Reddit forum named TheMattsterOfSelf announced that the skin of his hand was burned while using the Samsung Galaxy Watch. He also posted a photo to r/WellThatSucks.
Many users usually use their smartwatch to track the quality of sleep and various physical activities during the day and do not open this gadget from their wrist. The MattsterOfSelf was injured in an accident at night. According to him, the back panel of the watch started to heat up and then burned his hand.
This is not the first time that smartwatches or fitness tracker bracelets have caused such incidents. Also, this incident is not the first for the Galaxy Watch series. In the past, some reports claimed that the skin of the user’s hands had pimples or burn marks on the lower parts of the watch band or frame. It is worth mentioning that at the end of August this year, lawyers have completed their research on the complaints raised by users, and this issue will probably be the cornerstone of a class action lawsuit against Samsung.
In March of this year, Fitbit recalled millions of Fitbit Ionic smartwatches following user complaints about burns. Later, it was found that the battery used in these smartwatches is defective. This problem or the establishment of a short circuit causes an uncontrolled increase in the temperature of the device. As a result, a lawsuit was filed against Fitbit in May; This complaint was filed due to the problems of Fitbit Versa Light and Fitbit Versa 2 watches.
Earlier, it was reported that the explosion of a smartphone in India caused the death of a woman.
