How long do you have your gear fit? That's unbelievable. Seems Samsung is using the wrong material or plating.

It's salt and water. Odds are they used zinc and nickel for plating. No toxicity worries there. EDIT: If you're not allergic. Watch for that. Some folk get some pretty serious reactions, and they can vary quite a bit between reactions.

Some of that looks like wear, though. That's definitely a manufacturing flaw/bad design/cheap product.

Keep an old toothbrush or the head of one if you use and electric, and give them a good scrub every day that you wash your car (same idea). Hopefully that's about once a week. Maybe put some sort of machine friendly oil (mineral oil, bike lube) on (wipe off the excess with a tissue).



It might get some results for better future products if you let them know about it. You may even get a new band.

Mostly, though, thanks for the heads up! I know now to do all that stuff.

Mine is also rusting, I just noticed it. Also the plastic "chrome" looking bezel around the face is chipping off. It's black plastic underneath. I wonder if that is covered under warranty? I've only had the Gear Fit for three months.

Somehow good to see that's not only me with this issue. On my next trip to the City I will go to a Samsung brand store and see what they have say about it.

Update: Now the lock is broken
Guys take care of your Gear Fit if you have the same issue as above that you don't lose it on the go. Yesterday my lock broke in to pieces when I opened the bracelet. I'll send picture later..
