In brief: WRIST RASH

One common transferable disease that can occur on the wrist is a ringworm (fungal) infection.
Are you around any cats or dogs? Another can be impetigo. Do you wrestle? See a dermatologist if it doesn't disappear in a few days. Without actually seeing your rash it's impossible to k now.

In brief: Probably not

You probably have a contact dermatitis from your watch band or some wrist jewelry would be my guess.
Let your doc take a look at it and see if they can help.
