One person claims their wrist was burned by a Samsung Galaxy Watch while they were sleeping.

The post – which showed the person’s injury and the back of the watch that apparently caused the burn – was shared by a user named TheMattsterOfSelf in the Reddit ‘WellThatSucks’ community.

In the comments, he says the watch is a Galaxy Watch ‘Active 2 44mm Bluetooth model’ that he has been using to deal with insomnia for some time.

The user also says that the marks from the incident are third-degree burns – which are the type that extend down to the fat layer that lies beneath the dermis.

He apparently visited an emergency center after finding the burns under the watch.

The user also said that he was not wearing any kind of skin cream and was taking sleeping pills, which is why he didn’t feel the burns until later at night.

“So I don’t know why exactly it managed to do this, just that something happened while my meds were knocking me out and it was obvious that the bug protection itself had a bug,” TheMattsterOfSelf wrote.

A few other Reddit users also mentioned having similar issues while wearing this model of the Samsung smartwatch.

Although wearables like the FitBit, Samsung Galaxy Watch, and Apple Watch are more commonly known for tracking your heart rate after some high-intensity intervals, millions of people also use them for sleep tracking.

Samsung’s smartwatches have previously been implicated in wrist burns.

An investigation of a potential class action is investigating other reports of Galaxy Watches causing burns and injuries.

Earlier this year, Fitbit recalled 1.7 million of its Ionic smartwatches after 118 users were injured when they overheated — with two-thirds suffering third-degree burns.

In that case, owners received a $299 refund and a discount on future purchases.

The problems were caused by the smartwatch’s lithium-ion battery overheating.
