    So my wife is always asking about my watch. In the shower she asked me..." Can you turn on the water lock and still use the watch...?" I thought about it for a second and knew the answer is no BUT what if AW3 is functional under water... Scuba / Diving is the extreme. But maybe just being able to reply to a text or email in the shower wouldn't be so bad would it. The speaker wouldn't work but just touch screen functions.

    Wanted to know your thoughts on if AW3 was functional while in water / shower.

    It is, sort of -- but you have to either blow the water off the screen and dry your finger, or do it all via voice control.

    I've taken calls and forwarded texts in the shower before. Don't hate -- the texts were to get free tickets to Motley Crue for my guys at work. ;)
