See attached photo. I got my Apple Watch the first week, so it's been about a year and it's progressively getting worse. Is this a normal occurrence? Would Apple change it out for me or am I stuck with a rusted watch?

This isn't normal try wash it off and I would take it to the Apple Store

I have no such issues with my sports bands, definitely get in contact with Apple.

316 stainless isn't completely rust proof, however it's not normal. Take it back as stated.

Yes!! My band is doing the same on the inside. Causing skin irritation. It’s rusting and getting corroded.
