Apple Watch is gathering so much of attention for its unique functions and performance since its launch.
However, the pricey jewel from the Cupertino-based tech giant has run into something that is obviously not going to go well with the Apple fans.
New reports suggest that the newly released Apple Watch can not work properly with the wrists bearing tattoos.
As usual the issue was posted on Reddit where a user with a heavily inked wrist talks about his Apple Watch switching to lockscreen frequently.
The user called Guinnefan55 posted, “So I thought my shiny new 42mm SS watch had a bad wrist detector sensor. The watch would lock up every time the screen went dark and prompted me for my password.
“I couldn’t figure out why, especially since the watch was definitely not losing contact with my skin. Also I couldn’t find anything online with people experiencing this issue.
“I decided to try holding it against my hand (my left arm is sleeved and where I wear my watch is tattooed as well) and it worked.
“My hand isn’t tattooed and the Watch stayed unlocked. Once I put it back on the area that is tattooed with black ink the watch would automatically lock again.”
The issue occurs when the Apple Watch is in wrist detection mode. The watch basically eminent a green LED light placed on its back to detect the wrist so it can put itself in active mode when it is put on by the user.
However, the tattoo ink absorbs the light and the Apple Watch gets confused weather it is on the wrist or not.
The issue looks very simple to solve as a user can just go to the watch settings and turn off the Wrist Detection option. But it is not that simple how it looks like.
Turning off the Wrist Detection mode switches off the Apple Pay.
