    Default Re: How Apple Watch do with water

    Whilst it is allegedly water resistant (not water proof) I really wouldn't get it wet. It's fine for things like hand washing but anything more I wouldn't do.

    Others do shower with their watches and have not experienced any issues but personally, as it isn't rated to any atmospheres pressure at all, I just wouldn't do it.

    Default How Apple Watch do with water

    I concur with @Highrisedrifter. Better to be safe than sorry. While no watch is technically waterproof, there are many different ratings used to determine water resistance. Apple Watch is rated IPX7, which means that it's okay for outdoor use but it is not considered a rugged watch that's okay to be submerged in water.
    My advice: Feel free to leave your watch on while you're doing dishes or doing anything that may cause a few drops of water to touch your watch but take it off for anything else.
