Apple watch has not been launched around the world, but in some countries only. If you have already bought Apple watch, this news can make you little more happier. Apple watch has been tested to submerge in the water and even in the swimming pool. So if you have apple watch around your wrist and you forget to take it off while having shower or just jump into the swimming pool, don’t get so worried. It will survive. Here is the video of the Apple watch water resistant test:
So now this Apple watch water resistant test tells you that it survived in such situations, but there is something you need to understand. Apple watch is not water proof, but water resistant as Apple has clearly mentioned on its website. Apple watch has a water resistance rating of IPX7 under IEC standard 60529 that means it can survive in the rain, water splash or inside 1 meter deep water for 30 mins. So going with the Apple watch while swimming is not a good idea.
This is a good feature that an expensive watch should have, but remember that the watch is water resistant not the leather band. So if you have bought the one with leather band, you need to be more careful.
