    So I've had my Apple Watch almost a week now and haven't gotten it wet once. I'm extremely careful every time I wash my hands etc.

    But I just kept having the urge to run it under the tap super quickly while washing my hands, so today I finally did it. Everything completely fine and my silly urge has now been satisfied!

    Anyone else got their Apple Watch wet?

    Wow! Thank you, I didn't know that. /s

    It still goes against everything we all know about electronics, so it feels strange being able to get it wet.

    Consumer Reports did a submersion test (the video is on YouTube somewhere) and the watch seemed to do extremely well. Everything I have heard so far is that the water resistance of the watch is better than advertised.

    Yeah, saw the video yesterday. Just thought I'd kinda try it out myself. Would never submerge it though. Even though I know it would be perfectly fine and I have AppleCare+, I still wouldn't do it! Haha :)

    I wouldn't go swimming or take bath with the thing, but I was my hands frequently due to working in Hospital. No problems so far
