FYI, the watch handled a 5-mile mud/obstacle race just fine.

    The wife wore her :apple: Watch (38mm SS + Black SB) for the 2015 Spartan Sprint and had no problem with tracking her vitals for the entire five and 1/2 hours. While the watch required quite the cleanup afterwards, it's perfectly functional and scratch free.

    Nice! Great shots, too. :)

    Today, my 42 SS Watch braved me washing my hands after visiting the rest-room, in addition to making coffee for my wife. Whew!

    Great to know!! I run the Spartan and Tough Mudder races. Good to hear that the watch was able to hold up.

    Aww your wife looks like she was having a blast! Good for her and I'm glad the watch cleaned up nicely for her. I have the same model and I get really dirty gardening and landscaping with it, so I know this model is tough and cleans up surprisingly easy. Thanks for sharing these pics and your wife's experience with her Apple Watch.

    good photos, and she is way braver than I would be. A shower or floating in the pool is about as risky as I would be even with AC+

    You should tweet your FB page to Tim Cook. He would love seeing this!

    These could be promotional images for it, geez!

    Anyway, a nice thick layer of soupy mud is always a good benchmark. :cool:

    LOL, that's the last thing Apple would want! I doubt we will ever see the Watch exposed to water of any kind in any official promotion given the current water disclaimers.

    On the other hand, mud is definitely more viscous, and generally moves slower in terms of exerting force on the case, so it's likely to do less damage than swimming laps in a pool any day. Just don't wash it off with a pressurized hose.
