I've seen a lot of videos of people swimming with the AW and nothing happens. Anyone hear actually swim or shower with it? I basically need it to be splash proof with some light submerging.
Likely true. Apple's been gluing gadgets together for quite a while, but it's still a reservation I have. For now, I'm sticking with Cook's comments about how he showers with his own, and that the AW will tolerate water better than my unprotected iPod Nano could.My guess, based on experience with previous watches glued together, is that it will hold up for a year or two of regular water exposure before the glue breaks down and it starts to come apart.
I keep hearing that he never actually said that...Likely true. Apple's been gluing gadgets together for quite a while, but it's still a reservation I have.

From whom? Source? The French site iGen reported Tim told employees he showers with the watch. I have not seen any reports that Apple or Tim refuted that report.I keep hearing that he never actually said that...
^^^^^ Besides, why would Apple not learn from the 6th-gen iPod Nano's lack of waterproofing? I think even Phil Schiller had taken to wearing his Nano as a watch.
When I tried it with my own Nano, I thought it was neat all the way up to when I washed my hands in the bathroom. I had never been so worried about getting a watch wet. It was the last day I tried wearing my Nano as a watch.
Adding the MacRumors page about the same report:
Went back after I posted and saw you said you showered with it. Decided to make things interesting and leave the post...Yup.
Some guy posted in the iPhone forum about an incident that occurred with his new 6s. He sent his parents a picture of something outside his apartment window, and the phone was accidentally in Live Photo mode. He took the picture of what he wanted, and then he turned away. He was naked and the live photo caught a shot of his junk...at least it's something they've seen before...When it gets weird is when you send a text or take a call in the shower.
I was glad the AW doesn't have a camera.
Maybe.Maybe I'll try the shower thing just for the hell of it. Think I need to be extra mindful of water where on the watch the water is hitting?
