    i’m a cashier at a grocery store, with the constantly moving of my wrist do you think the battery will deplete faster? I wash my hands a lot is it OK to get the watch a tad bit wet
    Probably not all that much, and, yes.

    Apple's Milanese loop band? For me, no. Some people say that it loosens over time, but it never does to me when I wear it. Third party bands may not be as secure, and I sometimes wonder if people who complain about the Milanese loop loosening up over time are wearing a third party version.
    if you get it wet with washing your hands would it still be functionable

    I wore the Milanese loop as my main band most of last summer and never had trouble. Exercising, washing my hands, swimming - it was all good for me. Idon't wear it much these days because I have a 40 mm watch as my main watch and I can barely get the 40 mm Milanese over my hand, but I wear it for less casual occasions.

    It will be fine, but if you’re still concerned, you ca use the water lock feature. Here’s a link to Apple’s website that explains how:

    Ever since the Series 2 the Apple Watch is rated at 50 meters for 30 minutes. Washing your hands or swimming with it won't be a problem. Just be sure to rinse off any soap and rinse it after a swim as well. Soaps and chlorine as such will eventually wear away the water resistance and rinsing after contact with them will keep the water resistance functioning longer.
