How are you cleaning your series 2?
disclosure: i don't own an Apple Watch [yet]
After working out I run it under the faucet, dry it off, and put it on the charger until after my morning routine.
I rinse my AW Sport S0 with warm water after each workout. I also use a small amount of liquid hand soap once a week to clean the Watch and Sports band. I let the Watch dry while I finish getting ready for work and I switch to my Leather loop after the Watch has dried.
I have been doing this for a year without any problems.
30 minutes of a mixture of Comet, bleach, ammonia with a steel wool pad 4 to 6 times times a day and it is reasonably clean.
I used to do that but now I just put it under the sand blaster for half and hour.
I shoot a couple of swifts of windex on it and wash under warm water, dry and it is done.
I used to soak my Rolex in a glass of windex per my Rolex dealer. Always works good and dissolves to human gunk.
Windex will eventual destroy the water resistance. I'm sure the materials in the speaker and microphone openings on your Rolex are rated to withstand harsh chemicals, oh wait...
I just run it under the tap for 10 seconds (cold water) and then dry it off with a towel. I've done this for 18 months with my S0 and also my new S2.
No harm to date. You should keep you day job as your comedic skills are lacking
Just trying to point out the obvious peril of using ammonia on electronics. Oh, and I hope you have a stainless steel watch, because ammonia and aluminum don't play well.
It is SS so no need to worry. The ammonia never gets near the electronics.
Thanks for your concerns.
Ok. Be sure to keep the Windex off the screen as well since the ammonia will erode the oleophobic (anti-smudge) coating over time.
Since my S0 SS and now my S2 SS I have run them under warm running water, rubbing with my fingers and turning/pressing the crown and buttons to get in all the places where gunk can get in. Once a month or so I give it a quick buff with a Cape Cod cloth to get rid of any scratches (just did it earlier today in fact and looks like new).
Nah, whole thing gets soaked and then rinsed with warm water.
Good luck with that.
I just use a microfiber cloth. Then again, my Watch doesn't get very dirty.
Has not harmed any yet. All look like new. T
I think ou worry too much. Maybe a therapy dog for you.
I'm not the one giving bad advice on the internet, advice which directly contradicts everything Apple has said about caring for your Watch.
Also, I'm limiting my comments to your bad advice itself rather than making personal insults. You should try that in the future.
I am not advising anyone to use my method, I am simply stating what I do. Each has a choice.
Asking you to not worry so much is far from an insult.
