Apple Watch 7 question now that we’re nearing pool season..can I really get the watch wet like Apple claims, and are we talking a few water drops or full submersion? I usually charge it while I shower so haven’t tested the waterproof/resistance capability. When do I need to use water lock?

I’m back to report my watch had him problem being fully submerged…and my kids love the noise the watch makes when ejecting any water afterwards. Thank you all!


I haven’t myself, but I know folks that wear their Apple Watch to track swim workouts.

I swim with mine. Just an fyi (this is probably obvious to others but not to me) is it won’t get signal underwater. So if your expecting a text or call on it you have to keep your hand above the water.

You have to swipe up and hit the water droplet before going swimming. This locks your watch and prevents the damage. When you are done swimming you push the wheel on the side to unlock it. It will make a noise.

Whoops I have literally never done this


I have the Watch 5 and have gone swimming with it no problem.

My husband showers in it multiple times a day so it’s definitely fully submergeable

Definitely put it on the water setting before fully submerging, but yes fully waterproof on the water setting. I've swam with mine dozens of times and its perfectly fine. I've had it for years.

Enjoying this thread,,,, long time Fitbit wearer here & I swim regularly for exercise, thinking about make the switch to Apple, any pros or cons for one vs the other.

Would you feel comfortable telling HR that your service line’s culture sucks and name the individuals who cause it?
