The Apple Watch is not a Gremlin, wash it without fear

We receive consultations every so often about whether the Apple Watch can get wet, the short answer is yes, it's not Gremlin, you can get it wet without problems.
In the long answer, we must add a "Yes, but some models are not recommended to immerse them". As is the case with the original Apple Watch or Series 1 .
Officially, Series 2 and 3 are the only ones that Apple certifies to be able to submerge them, even in salt water. But remember to sweeten it once the activity at sea is over.

Wet or submerge the Apple Watch

Apple Watch Series 3
Well, we are going to try to shed some light on this subject that makes you dizzy to many. All Apple Watch are splash resistant. In 2015,  Tim Cook claimed that he was showered with his first generation Apple Watch without any problems.
What's more, to clean the digital crown, it is advisable to use a jet of warm water while rotating the crown. This eliminates impurities that prevent a smooth turn, so it is not necessary to remove the original Apple Watch or Series 1 to wash hands, scrub, wash the car or any other action that could wet our watch.
Apple explains it quite well on its website , both Series 1 and the original model , have a water resistance classification IPX7, this means that it is apt to receive splashes on a rainy day, wash hands or even resist the sweating while we practice sports.
In the case of the Apple Watch Series 2 and 3 , they can be submerged , as they have a water resistance level of up to 50 meters, but Apple recommends not diving. Nor do they recommend using the Apple Watch while doing activities that involve water impacts, such as water skiing.
They make it clear that water resistance is not permanent and that it could lose its seal over time. In order to maintain this resistance as long as possible, we recommend avoiding these actions:
  • Drop it or expose it to other types of blows.
  • Expose to soap or soapy water, for example, when bathing or showering.
  • Expose the watch to perfumes, solvents, detergents, acids, acidic foods, insect repellents, lotions, sunscreen creams, oils or hair dyes.
  • Exposing it to high speed water impacts, for example, by water skiing.
  • Wear the watch in a sauna or steam room.
In short, the first generation Apple Watch and Series 1 you can get wet without any problems. With Series 2 and 3, you can also wet them with salt water and submerge them (although they do not recommend it for diving activities).
