Fitbit Third Degree Burns – What Exactly Happened?
A fitbit user has shared the horrifying moment when his fitbit exploded on his wrist while he was sleeping.
Ethan Landers, who lives in the USA, shared his experience on Facebook and described the Fitbit watch exploding without warning in the middle of the night.
In Ethan’s Facebook post he said:
“I quickly realised my Fitbit was burning up, so I tried frantically to get it off. “
“With a few failed attempts, I jumped out of bed and turned the light on where my wife was able to unlatch the band on my Fitbit.”
Ethan was in terrible and immediate pain and felt as though the Fitbit had melted through his arm and his bedroom “smelled like an electrical fire”.
In view of the extent of the injury it was necessary for Ethan to attend for emergency treatment where he was referred to a wound clinic.
Ethan was advised that the Fitbit had caused a third degree burn and it remains to be seen if he will need a skin graft.
Have You been Injured by an Exploding Fitbit or other Tech related Injury?
We know from newspaper reports that Ethan’s accident isn’t an isolated event.
There have been several reports in the press of other people suffering a similar fate.
Fitbit have reportedly been investigating and there is a concern that the batteries which are in these devices are prone to over heating.
For instance other manufactuers such as Samsung have received similar complaints resulting in a recall of their Galaxy Note 7.
There seems to be a spate of incidents involving a whole range of technology where batteries have over heated and caused serious and even fatal injuries.
Indeed we have acted for Claimants arising out of exploding e-cigarettes where client’s have sustained serious burns.
