Fitbit Force sales halted citing skin irritation issues
Fitbit today has halted sales of their Force fitness tracker due to skin irritation issues with a good number of users. The units have been causing rashes on users and thus Fitbit is stopping all sales of the units and is issuing a voluntary recall so those affected can get a full refund at retail price. Of course if you're not having issues, then you can continue to use your Force without a hitch.
Recently, some Force users have reported skin irritation. While only 1.7% of Force users have reported any type of skin irritation, we care about every one of our customers. On behalf of the entire Fitbit team, I want to apologize to anyone affected.
If you're one of the rashy bunch and want to return your Fitbit force, you can do so from the dedicated page here.
