Fitbit reported that 1.7% of owners reported skin problems with the Force. They are recalling them and offering refunds to whomever wants one.

I have a One and my husband has a Flex. We love our Fitbits. They work well, their customer service is wonderful, and if will gladly buy a Force when it is time to replace my One if they start selling them again.

the fitbits in general are usually a good tool if you use it the way it is intended. As far as rashes, not everyone got one, but the majority of people were complaining.

They are stopping production of the force and issuing refunds for users due to skin rash.
I have one, and really like it and have never had an issue with rash.
