Complaints of skin irritations caused by the Apple Watch are appearing in online forums and social networking sites.

Despite Apple's instruction page on how to wear the watch in such a way as to avoid irritating the skin, Italian news website Ispazio.net published photos of an irritated wrist and a Reddit user complained of irritation.

To avoid developing rashes and irritation, the band must be worn neither too loose nor too tight, according to Apple, which states that the product's materials have undergone extensive testing.

Fitbit users complained of a similar problem last year.
