    So according to the Apple website about the series 3 watch:

    "Apple Watch Series 3 has a water resistance rating of 50 meters under ISO standard 22810:2010. This means that it may be used for shallow-water activities like swimming in a pool or ocean. However, Apple Watch Series 3 should not be used for scuba diving, waterskiing, or other activities involving high-velocity water or submersion below shallow depth."

    Ok, the watch is good to go for swimming in a pool or ocean, but not water skiing, scuba diving, etc. Since the weather here is starting to get warmer, I'm breaking out the mountain bike for some afternoon and weekend rides. Now I'm not worried about water and sweat, but what about mud, muck, etc.?

    Thoughts?

    In what conditions are you using your series 3?

    Mud and muck!....Oh heck no!...My mud and muck playing days ended when I left the Marine Corps many moons ago. Nowadays, I wear business attire almost 7 days a week, and if I don't plan on getting dirty, my Series 3 Watch sure as heck isn't either........Anyway, to answer your question, I wear my Watch 7 days a week under in conditions that are in no way harmful to it or me....(laughing)

    I am dust ha ha. My work conditions are dusty like you wouldn’t believe and banging my hands and head in tight spaces. In other words, my Apple Watch is going to get banged up. That’s why I bought a case for it, though I want a more comfortable one. The aluminum holds up quite well to being beat on though.

    Mud and much? No way hahaha.
    Just make sure you shower afterwards to clean out the sweat on your Watch.
