Apple Watch survives hot shower, swimming, repeated submersion


Any device designed to sit on your wrist all day has to be able to withstand the elements. The Apple Watch is no exception to this. It may be an expensive piece of hardware, but there’s only so much you can do to protect it so the responsibility falls to Apple to make a hard-wearing device. And in the case of water resistance, the Apple Watch delivers.

Australian YouTube channel FoneFox decided to put the Apple Watch Sport through a rather extreme waterproofing test. They fully expected to break the watch, but as the video shows, they couldn’t much to their surprise.
