So, I've been wearing my new AWS for a few days now. There are some things about it that I like, and other things I'm not that excited about. One of the main issues is how uncomfortable it is to wear for prolonged periods of time. I think the discomfort is caused by these three facts: The back of the watch is shaped like a curve, pointing down into your wrist. The band has to be tight enough, so that the back is in contact with the skin at all times The back is made of some kind of plastic, which creates friction between itself and the wrist The sum of these facts results in the curved, plastic back creating a constant pressurse on a fixed point of your wrist. Even if the pressure is light, after several hours of it every day, and no air circulation at that fixed point, the skin becomes red and feeling sore. I am interested in other AWS owners' experiences with this, and suggestions for solutions. The only two I can think of at the moment are: Take regular breaks from wearing the watch, letting the skin rest and breathe. Let the skin adjust to the pressure and harden up. For the record, I am used to wearing watches. For the last 5-6 years I've been wearing a Swiss made watch, with a flat metal casing. This watch, I could keep loose enough to let it slide up and down on my wrist when I moved my hand, so it never created any pressure like I'm experiencing with the AWS. If I try to wear the AWS equally loose as the Swiss watch, the AWS screen keeps locking up.
