How waterproof is my Apple Watch?
Apple Watch Series 2 and Apple Watch Series 3: waterproof to 50 meters
The Apple Watch Series 2 and the Apple Watch Series 3 are water-resistant to a depth of 50 meters. That means that you can fully submerge the watch. I can take it for a swim in the sea or in a pool. The smartwatch has a built-in speaker that water can get into. That's why I turn the Digital Crown after I leave the water. The speaker will make a beeping noise that will vibrate the water out of the watch? Convenient, right?
Apple Watch Series 1: splash proof
The Apple Watch Series 1 isn't fully waterproof like the Series 2, only splash proof. Apple warns against submerging the Apple Watch Series 1 or wearing it in the shower. I can wear the smartwatch when washing my hands. If it starts raining during my outdoor workout, I won't need to worry; the Apple Watch Series 1 can handle it.
Apple Watch: splash proof
Like the Apple Watch Series 1, the Apple Watch is splash proof, not waterproof. What I said earlier applies to this one as well: I can wear the watch when washing my hands or exercising in the rain without any worries.
