Technically Incorrect: In case you have ink on your wrist and covet an Apple Watch, the comedian has the perfect solution for you.

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.

Those with wrist tattoos have been cursing the skies.

Chefs, fashion models, hipsters, these people gave their bodies to art and now art is shunning their bodies.

Yes, the Apple Watch may not feel their hearts because of the ink on their wrists. Last week, Apple acknowledged the problem that some users of the new device have experienced, saying: "The ink, pattern, and saturation of some tattoos can block light from the sensor, making it difficult to get reliable readings."

The pathos, the tragedy.

Late-night TV host Conan O'Brien feels their pain. No tattoo will stop him from empathizing. So he's persuaded Apple to create a solution.

It's the Apple Watch Hand.

Sometimes, when your body isn't good enough, you have to let science take over.

You have to let it perform some of your formerly natural functions.

You have to let artificial ingredients be a part of you, so that you can partake of Apple's latest natural gadget.

Yes, there might be a few awkward moments, as your Apple Watch Hand attempts to maneuver its way through your life.

But you will be a pioneer, someone who holds their watch to their ear when they're taking a call.

And that, as you know, is the epitome of cool.
