Question Charging Pins causing rash on wrist?

I purchased the Gear Live for my wife last month. Just last week she was traveling for work and sent me this picture of her wrist. The watch had given her a rash or skin irritation, possibly from the charging pins. I purchased a Gwatch a week after I got her Gear Live, and I don't wear it as often (usually just weekends). I know there was recently an update for the Gwatch to turn current off in the charging pins. I am wondering if the Gear Live may have the same issue that needs to be addressed? Has anyone else experienced this? Or should I contact Google/Samsung about a possible defective unit?
Thanks.

Supposedly we got the same update. Hardly seen anything related to gear live, but that's not to say it wouldn't happen
