Is it ok to go in the bath with these? The heat won’t do anything to it?
Why would you want it in the bath?
I have even showered with my S0 which isn't even officially waterproof. All new models are specifically designed to be used underwater even in warm swimming pools so it won't be a problem.
There’s no guarantee that The water resistance won’t fail. However, it is rated at 50 m water resistance, so it should be safe to use underwater, but with anything with soaps can deteriorate the water seals on the watch, Which you will want to make sure you rinse it off early when you’re through. Apple also recommends this off their website.
Just checking it will be ok in hot liquids. I probably wouldn’t go in the bath with it on but might dive in a really hot shower.
It shouldn’t be an issue, there are those who use their Apple Watches in hot tubs and don’t have problems. But again, its *not* a guarantee. The only thing I could also think of, is it steam can penetrate pass the water seals, that can be problematic.
I've worn my Series 2 watch into my hot tub countless times. Temps anywhere from 97 to 102 degrees and havent had an issue. As others have said, soap will degrade the seals, so I dont shower with my watch on.
Make sure you turn on the swimming/ water drop button. Also, I don't think that the watch likes soaps and detergents. I only use mine when swimming.
Wouldn't expect any issue as long as it is short term. Two potential problems would be the seals being damaged by soap/detergent long term (not likely, and you're also not going to have it in the bath for days continuously), or pressure. This is also partially how the water certification is tested, so hot tub jets could be a potential great risk, but I'd still say it's very unlikely to cause damage.
