Fitbit CEO James Park said in a statement that almost 2% of Force wristband users experienced skin irritation. He further stated that the rashes might be the skin's adverse reaction to certain substances found in the product's strap or adhesives.

The company also announced it has created a website for users who want to return the Force wristband for reimbursement.
