    I just got a series 2. One of the reasons I waited and bought this model was the water proof/resistance. How is it conceivable to shower with the watch yet keep soap off it?

    Topic has and will be beat to death (100's of threads over the last 1½ years) but I have showered well over 500 times with my S0 and NEVER had anything but clean to show for it.

    ive seen lots of
    I have seen lots of discussion on showering with original apple watch...I guess I was just wondering what everyone's thoughts are regarding, "its ok to shower with the watch but not get soap on it". How is that even logical

    'Cuz soap has chemicals that could, at least with some soaps, eat away at the glue and seals, or leave residue behind.

    You can say, "Oh if it doesn't burn your skin it's okay", but your skin is always being replaced.

    I alluded to Apple's recommendation in one of those other threads being valid because you can imagine some guy saying, "Oh, I can use cleaners on it?" then decides to soak it in Goo Gone before giving it a good rub with a Scotch-Brite pad and Lava soap.

    All that being said, I still rinse mine nightly in the shower.

    In sure Apple just wants to cover their bases. Obviously they aren't about to test every conceivable soap and detergent that your Watch may come into repeated contact with. By all accounts, the first Watch was also much more resilient than Apple promised it would be.

    I don't shower with my watches (I find this the perfect time to throw it on the charger as I have also done with Fitbit prior to owning an AW), but I wouldn't stress about it for a second if I were you.
