While most people are hailing the Apple Watch as some kind of miracle device, it isn’t without its faults. Sure it is a well made device, with nice form and function, but it is far from perfect. A lot of people feel that its pricing is a major weakness for instance, considering that it is far from perfect. Well, among the flaws are complaints from several Apple Watch users that the wrist detection does not work, especially for those who have tattoos.
Tattoos located on the lower arm tend to fool the Apple Watch’s sensors, which then don’t work as expected. One owner said that his Apple Watch worn on a wrist tattooed with black ink did not deliver a single notification, and the device will then lock each time his surroundings get dark. Testing out the same Apple Watch against his unmarked hand, it worked just fine, which seems to say it all. Tattoos and the Apple Watch just do not mix it seems. Bad news for some users.
Of course, you could turn off wrist detection completely, but thien why would you want to have an Apple Watch? I wonder how Apple will “fix” this. Or if it can fix this strange issue.
