    So who is going to shower with their watch on? For me I take my watch off when I shower, I know some people keep their watch on all the time.

    I can honestly say I have never thought about wearing a watch in the shower.

    No way. I'm not risking my $700 investment for something so stupid.

    Not only did Tim Cook say he did, but there are quite a few videos of people testing it in the shower with no issues. Now, I wouldn't wear mine just because I don't like the idea of wearing something in the shower. But it seems like it would be safe to.

    Wonder how the metal will hold up over time? Feel like the risk of corrosion from constantly showering would be present.

    Tim Cook also probably has a new one for each day so he doesn't have to worry if one gets ruined lol

    I agree. Especially with soap and shampoo getting on it.

    He wouldn't have said it if it was ruining his watch.

    Water shouldn't affect the metal. Aluminum doesn't rust and neither does stainless steel.

    I've used regular watches with stainless steel cases for many years and never had any corrosion issues from showers or ocean water.

    Will I shower with this watch, once I get it? Most likely not. I wouldn't want to take chances with it. If water were to get somehow inside it would be a whole lot more problematic than just letting it dry out for a couple of days, if that is even possible.

    That's another reason I wouldn't shower with it on. Risk of water getting in and ruining the internals

    I've seen a video of someone showering with it on. I wouldn't do it still. I tested this with a Samsung S5 & ruined it by diving in the pool with it. Let's just say, I had to replace my fiances phone.

    I won't shower with my watch on. Besides the risk of damage I really don't have the need the shower with it. I don't see myself trying to catch up on email while scrubbing down! If I get to the point where I feel the need to shower with this device I think I'll need to reevaluate my life.

    I know some folks just leave their watch on all time, which is fine, but it's not for me. I'll take it off before I jump in the shower.

    I'm sure mine will it's fair share of water from washing my hands, rain etc.

    Honestly. I don't understand people that sleep or shower with a watch on. Let your skin breath a little. And let the watch stay away from your sweat a little. Even tho as soon as I get home I take my watch off. I still have to clean underneath the watch once a month. I can't imagine the people that wear the watch 24/7. It's disgusting.

    Some of us wear fitness watches, like my Fitbit Surge. I can promise you, my hygiene & my watch's condition are superb.

    Wife just took a shower with hers and had a full business phone call while in there, it was pretty funny...and apparently the people on the other end had no idea (there were no audible indications that water was hitting the device while she was using it).

    I'm sure some people's hygiene are good. But we all know there are some out there that are careless. I got couple of co-workers that only shower twice a week. Maybe 3 during summer time. Smh

    Twice a week? I would be a greasy, oily mess. That's pretty gross.

    No, wouldn't wear one in the shower, but I think there's no technical reason not to. Tests have shown that it works fine after an extended dousing. I just prefer to get clean, and having a metal band on my wrist gets in the way.

    I have several watches that are "water resistant", and yet, I do not wear them in the shower. Neither will I wear my Watch Sport in the shower. It's just not what I do.

    My now "formal" watch (pre apple watch was my everyday one) is waterproof, but has a white leather band. So I'm used to the whole not wearing a watch in the shower thing. Even though I have AppleCare +, don't want to risk it...
