    So, now that many of us have our Watches, how many of you wear yours in the shower? I was keeping mine in between the curtain and liner, but after seeing that EverythingApplePro video where he wears the Watch at the pool all day, down water slides and everything, I am more confident and am putting my Sport to the side in the shower. I won't wear it cause I need to wash my arm, and I want to avoid it getting soap as well. It still got pretty wet but worked great for music. So how many of you guys are wearing yours in the shower?

    I have a window just above the shower I may set it in, but I don't like wearing things in the shower.

    Yeah that's why I set mine on the ledge in the shower.

    I am. It's IP7X certified meaning : IPX-7 – Protected against water immersion. Immersion for 30 minutes at a depth of up to 1 meter.

    Pretty sure taking a shower with it wont affect it.

    You should get it wet until it stops working.

    And why not use your iPhone for music? It has a much better speaker. Oh, I get it. The novelty and the challenge. Very smart. Very good.


    Go for it. Just let us know when it stops working without whining.

    Works excellently, shower with it everyday after the gym.

    I use a waterproof bluetooth speaker in the shower and it's controls are terrible. The watch will allow me to have better access to song changes etc. Also I am terrible about showering to long and making myself nearly be late so having the time will be nice as well.

    I don't know why people are so worried about something it is clearly rated to withstand.

    I'm using a BT speaker outside the shower. The watch is just used to control it.

    I have decided that it's not worth it, so I don't bathe.

    Shouldn't worry about the water. The steam is why I won't do it. Submerging it in room temperature water isn't the same thing.

    I don't really take super steamy showers.

    Maybe if the WATCH could play videos, people would be using it in the shower more often. *wink* *wink*

    Watch does play videos surprisingly. I had a video sent to me in a text and it played on the Watch

    No it is not. Apple even tells you so:

    There's no lack of bizarre entertainment in this thread. No wonder some people perceive Apple Disciples as odd... :eek:

    Water is one thing but how about the soap and shampoo that get's into it?

    I'm hoping Apple will open up watchkit and that sleep cycle will be able to make an app for it. Then shower time will be charging time.

    Have showered with it every day since I got it. No problems at all. I do not get why this is such a big deal to people (both those who think it will break and those who are bafflingly offended by the idea of having a watch in the shower.)

    I've found it useful, as well. Several times already I have had thoughts I wished to be reminded of which I would typically forget by the time my shower ended. Hey Siri...


    It doesn't get into it. Why would it? It's water resistant. What are you shampooing with, ethanol‽

    Sure, as long as you're having 3 hour long showers ;)

    Just wait.
    Hot water is the enemy of every watch.
    I don't take in the shower even my hardcore 1000m+ divers watches.
    Cold water, no problem. Salt water, i tend to avoid it. Hot water or sauna, never!
