Would bracelets that have magnetic stones like hematite cause an issue with the Apple Watch if worn on the same wrist?

Good question. I don't believe that it would affect the Apple Watch. If it did, it would likely just be something to do with the sensors for the heart rate monitor. But otherwise, I would say no, it shouldn't affect the Apple Watch. Likely depending on how strong the magnets were.

Something to thing to keep in mind. The :apple:Watch has magnets in it near the back. So there is a chance of the bracelet and :apple:Watch being attracted to each other.

I was not aware of any magnets on the back of the watch. Any worn magnets might be attracted to the back just like the charger puck is.

I do not see it would harm or effect the watch.
