Provata Health voluntarily recalled 30,000 fitness trackers following reports following 13 reports that the device was overheating while charging or being used.

In three of these reports, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission says users suffered burns to their wrists.

The wristbands were given to consumers as a promotional giveaway between August 2017 and July 2018.

They were distributed in three colors: black, blue, or mint green.

Users are urged to immediately stop wearing or charging the recalled wristbands, and should contact Provata Health for instructions on how to receive a free replacement.
