    Are the leather straps (especially, the Modern Buckle) waterproof? Will they hold up to a shower everyday?

    If I wear my watch in the shower, should I just use a rubber strap?

    I know it's splash proof but I'm scared of wearing it in the shower lol.

    ...No, don't get the leather wet. It will spot and eventually dry out and disintegrate.

    From (non Apple Watch) experience, leather bands hold up very poorly to moisture. Over time it will look pretty grungy. Especially if you exercise regularly (sweat!) with it.
