Some Tattoos Found to Interfere With Apple Watch's Sensors

Recommended Posts

A growing number of users have turned to social networks claiming that full sleeve tattoos, ones that stretch to cover the wrist, interfere with the Apple Watch's heart rate sensor and skin contact registration.

I've seen this watch in the store and to me it is really pointless. It does not do enough to justify the price or getting it. Just seems like a shiny gadget...

So no loss if they don't work on tattoos. My regular watch works just fine.

I am so looking forward to the iWatch2, and iWatch3, and ...

Seems like I should start investing!

Unless the watch can do more than my phone I don't see any use for it really...it's like having an iPad a cell phone, a netbook, laptop and a desktop...all at once.

a tattoo: no software updates, no battery charger and silly accessory cords, no applecare protection plan, will not broadcast your exact GPS location to NSA, and most importantly will not require a genius nerd in a blue shirt to assist you after the damn thing is a year old.

Wait, so the sensor is made of green LEDs and photodiode sensors which image capture blood flow on the wrist and have a hard time seeing through dark pigmented skin. I have to ask, does that mean that it doesn't work on black people too? The fuck, Apple??

    • There's nothing wrong with it. Don't worry. Just enjoy it.
    • It's healing. It won't fully heal for 4 to 6 weeks. Just let it heal and don't smother it with anything.
    • Hi! So I got my first tattoo ten days ago. They are fine line tulips and they are so beautiful. The thing is, it's kinda getting darker, darkening the delicate the details of ir too. Is this normal? I always heard the tattoo Will go lighter as it heals but it's being the opposite for me. It has pretty much flaked off completely so i'm scared it might be the way this heals and thats it. Please help. Here are some pics The first is right after I got it and the second one is now.  Also something yo know I put the film to sleep for like 2 more nights after I got it which later I ask my artista and he Say I really shouldn't xD could this have some influencia on how it's looking now? Thanks for the help
