Wearing the right type of watch band may help prevent skin irritation for those with sensitive skin. With our selection of Apple Watch bands for sensitive skin, you should never need to worry about irritation around the wrist again.
Skin irritation is mainly associated with an overlying health condition or an allergic reaction of the body. Skin irritation is one of the most uncomfortable feelings that can quickly change your mood from a hundred to zero.
The skin around your wrist is susceptible, and any material that comes in contact with it if there is an existing condition can lead to skin irritation. Apple has tried to address this issue to increase customer comfortability with their products. However, the problem has proven challenging as people have different skins; hence, it is impossible to target specific users.

Frequently Asked Questions About Apple Watch Bands for Sensitive Skin
Each of the options listed above should provide a comfortable fit without the risk of rashes and skin irritation. However, you may still have a few questions you need to have answered to find the best band for your wrist.
Why Do Some Watch Bands Cause Skin Irritation?
A rash from Apple Watch bands can occur for several reasons, including:
- Allergic contact dermatitis
- Irritation from dirt and debris
- Chafing of the skin
- Sweaty wrists
Some people experience allergic reactions to certain materials, such as certain metals or plastics. If you have sensitive skin, you may find that you experience more irritation when wearing specific materials. Ceramics, resin, and silicon are less likely to irritate the skin compared to nickel and certain polymers.
You may also experience irritation or develop a rash due to dirt and debris getting caught between the band and your wrist. Dirt, soap, and food can collect throughout the day. The debris may rub against your wrists, irritating your skin.
A loose watch band can also irritate your skin. The constant movement of the band as it slides up and down your wrist may chafe the skin, which can cause a burning sensation and redness of the skin.
The lack of a breathable design is another potential cause of skin irritation when wearing a watch band. If you wear a thick band during a workout, you may notice that your wrists get sweaty. The sweat can irritate and increase the risk of chafing.
What Size Apple Watch Band Should I Get?
If you want to keep the band from sliding around and chafing your wrist, make sure that you purchase the right size. Most of the bands available from CXS Bands are made for one of two groups of Apple Watch sizes.
The smaller Apple Watches have cases that measure between 38 mm and 41 mm. The bands for these cases should fit wrists measuring between 130 mm and 200 mm.
