    I decided to shower with my Sport model watch this morning. (I Have AppleCare+) As I was showering, the phone rang and I answered it. Had to hold close to my ear due to the sound of the shower. It worked like a charm, no damage whatsoever! Then I placed a call just to try it...worked well.

    Just stating fact. Tim Cook showers with his...and I have missed several semi-important phone calls in the past from my wife while showering.

    YMMV

    You must take some long showers :p I can see how it would be useful...though I probably wouldn't answer if it wasn't someone I knew well.

    Actually last Saturday I had my first ever. It was my dad and I needed to talk to him. Just cut the water off and was on the phone. It was a little strange but very convenient.

    Thank goodness there's no FaceTime feature in this scenario!

    First shower & shower phone call!

    Had you always bathed or washed from a basin before this? Either way, welcome to the power of shower!

    My wife likes baths, I happen to like showers:cool:

    This whole showering with your Watch obsession thing isn't getting creepy... nope, not creepy at all.

    I got the Classic Buckle band, which is leather, so showers are out for me unless I get a sport band as a secondary.

    I'm wondering how my SS link bracelet would hold up. I think it'll be fine, but I'm worried about the chemicals from the soap and shampoo. I could always swap it out for a sports band in the shower.

    Well, I may not wear it in the shower, but some other areas in the bathroom... come on, tell me you never texted with it while on the throne! :)
