Hi guys, I have my new AWS SG and was wandering if anyone has tried or do they wear it whilst in the shower? Sounds a silly question but I wanted to ask and see other peoples points and opinions on the matter.
There have been several threads of people that do wear their AW in the shower. It should not hurt the watch but I see no purpose in it. Might as well leave you socks on, too!
Just remember that they do explicitly tell you in the users guide not to bathe or swim with it. (the Tim Cook quote was leaked from a private meeting with Apple retail employees in Germany).
So, if you DO manage to kill it with water it may or may not be covered by warranty. (We're waiting for the first few lucky people to tell us how that pans out).
Yep. The IPX7 rating that Apple certifies it to is actually pretty low (it's 1m of water for 30 minutes). 1m of water equals 1.4psi of pressure. That's hardly anything at all (the streams coming from your shower head are considerably more). So, if there is water ingress, it's almost certainly exceeded what Apple warrantied it for. (I wouldn't be surprised if they put a pressure sensor on the system board for that purpose).I will say that we have heard almost nothing about water incursion into the AW thus far, and with 2.9 million watches sold, I am sure a lot of them have been underwater is some shape or form. It must actually be waterproofed pretty well.
Heh. Likely wouldn't be able to unless you left it on that stream until it filled the case and then put pressure on the water that's filling the case.How would a pressure sensor on the system board measure the pressure of a stream of water directed at the case?
Here it is at 75 psi at 140' depth with no problems. Also here is other water tests too.How would a pressure sensor on the system board measure the pressure of a stream of water directed at the case?

Pleas elaborate, there are no type of water detectors in the Watch. What do you mean by "...able to detect shower damage vs rain damage"....I'm saying that Apple would not be able to detect shower damage vs rain damage.

Water is water and if it ingresses into the case that is all that can be deduced from examination. There is no way short of a video or chemical analyses of telling shower water damage from rain water damage (ore any other water).
Yep when having a shower at the gym. Give the watch a wash down. No issues.
What point are you trying to make here? Are you saying water streaming out of a shower head is greater than 75psi? I highly doubt it, or every watch that's rated to 50m would be destroyed in the shower.Neither test shows measuring a stream of water directed at the case.
I'm not saying it can't handle water. I'm saying that Apple would not be able to detect shower damage vs rain damage.
