    Hello, my name is Guilherme Reis,
    Could you share this information so that other people were not deceived too?

    The video is in: Portuguese



    I bought an Apple Watch Series 2 and went swimming with it after 20m, the watch turn down, I thought it was the battery, but when I got home I found water inside of it, and has no longer power up as it is in the video.

    Apple sold an image that you could play sports with it in the water, including the sea, but it is not like that!

    Tks for sharing this.

    Why would we share this? You got a dud. A defective unit. It happens. If this is the first time it's ever happened to you, consider yourself lucky.

    Have you've taken it in for repair/exchange and been refused?

    You were not deceived. Apple is not lying. Just take the watch to Apple and have them replace it under warranty. No need to break out the tin foil just yet.

    How did you '...find water inside of it..."? Anyway there is little point in posting a manufacture defect. Just get it replaced.

    Curious to know if this is covered. Water damage has always been the one thing not covered by warranty but the Watch is supposed to be water proof.

    Yes it is covered as was the S0 before it. It is covered by law (advertising) and by International Organization for Standardization (ISO) licensing agreement.

    I think you mean ISO license agreement?

    Yes, it makes it look like I was saying iOS in the iPhone. :eek: Will edit it. It just seems backwards but I guess it is a European thing.:D

    Found explanation.
    http://www.iso.org/iso/home/about.htm#2012_aboutiso_iso_name-text-Anchor
    Because 'International Organization for Standardization' would have different acronyms in different languages (IOS in English, OIN in French for Organisation internationale de normalisation), our founders decided to give it the short form ISO. ISO is derived from the Greek isos, meaning equal. Whatever the country, whatever the language, we are always ISO.

    The seals obviously are the issue. The Apple
    Watch is rated for water resistance, yours however, is defective.

    As other's have pointed out, there's no conspiracy here. You just got a defective device. So... call Apple, send it in, and get it replace.

    I guess I must be one of the lucky ones who also got a dud, mine didn't seem to eject the water from the speaker. Audio coming out of it is distorted. To finish off the experience, until Apple decide otherwise, I was told it was accidental damage and needs to be reviewed for a warranty claim.

    He is still on vacation. At least his avatar makes it look like he is.
