I am a little frustrated about the misinformation about the water resistance. Apple gives it a rating allowing it to go underwater 1 meter for no more than 30 mins. But they say you can get it wet in the shower or rain but I would not submerge it. What? **Apple Watch is splash and water resistant but not waterproof. You can, for example, wear and use Apple Watch during exercise, in the rain, and while washing your hands, but submerging Apple Watch is not recommended. Apple Watch has a water resistance rating of IPX7 under IEC standard 60529. The leather bands are not water resistant. So this statement says two different things. Regardless I will swim with the watch within the first 30 or 14 days and if it gets water damage then back it will go and Apple would be responsible for replacing it. I swim a lot so I will probably just return it and head to pebble. My point is if you give it a IPX7 rating then own it.
