Devices of all kinds indicate watertightness or watertightness as a selling point. From moreto the use of our devices around or in the water is becoming more common
But we're trying to figure out exactly what you can and can not do with your Apple Watch is important.
The not-so-waterproof models
The first-generation Apple Watch – sometimes referred to as Series 0 – and the second-generation Apple Watch, the Series 1, are not really made to handle more than the occasional splash. Apple recommends that you do not use any of the models as the speaker and microphone may be damaged.
If you take a bath with Apple Watch's earlier models, you must remove the watch and place it on the device's side with the speaker facing down. This can drain any water in the cavity. Do not use blown air or any other tool to remove the water, as this may cause damage.
Swim Sport Models
The Apple Watch Series 2 and 3 models are specifically designed for swimming. In particular, the models have an ISO rating of 22810: 2010. That means a clock that can withstand water activities to a depth of 50 meters.
Even with this review, Apple recommends not wearing the watch while diving or water skiing – basically anything that can cause water in the ports of the clock is forced at high speed or high lows.
Wearing the watch in fresh or sea water is fine, remember to rinse your watch with fresh water (from a tap is fine) after swimming in the sea to remove any salt.
Whether you're swimming or just for fun, get used to the water-lock on the Apple Watch. The feature prevents water from activating the watch touch screen.
Starting a pool swimming or open water swim training activity automatically activates the water barrier. Otherwise you can activate the water lock in the control panel (swipe up on the dial) and tap on the water icon.
To disable Water Lock, you must turn the digital crown on your watch until you hear a series of beeps. The sound emitted by the speaker is used to expel water from the cavity.
Caution is better than forbearance
Although Series 2 and 3 timepieces are designed to withstand fresh water, it is best not to wear them in the shower. Not only can a shower deliver water at high speed, but Apple advises against mentioning the chemicals in shampoos and soaps, as it can worsen the water resistance of the watch.
Other chemicals to avoid include perfume, insect repellent, lotion, sunscreen, hair dye and oil. If you get something on your watch, rinse it with fresh water.
Avoid wearing your watch in the sauna or steam room as the heat can also affect the water resistance.
