If you have recently purchased a Fitbit Force from our website we appreciate your business very much and wanted to let you know that it has been brought to our attention that a very small number of users have experienced skin irritation from its use. As a result the manufacturer has decided to stop sale of Fitbit Force and conduct a voluntary recall.
Fitbit Force - large, black: UPC 898628002885
Fitbit Force - small, black: UPC 898628002960
What is causing the reported skin irritation?
Fitbit hired independent labs and medical experts to conduct a thorough investigation to identify the potential causes of skin irritation reported by a small percentage of Force users. Some users may be reacting to nickel in the stainless steel used in the device, even though the surgical grade material meets the most stringent regulatory standards. Other users are likely experiencing an allergic reaction to the materials in the strap or the adhesives used to assemble the product.
Fitbit is offering a full refund to users who would like to return their Force. To expedite your refund, please complete this form at http://fitbit.com/forcesupport/refund or call Fitbit at 1-888-656-6381 to request a return kit with prepaid shipping envelope. Once Fitbit receives your Force they will process your refund cheque.
