    Yes, a lot of people shower/bath/swim with the AW on a daily basis.

    Anything is possible, as long as you aware that you will void your warranty.

    The AW is rated IPX7 (waterproof to 1 meter for 30 minutes). They can't prove that you went beyond 1 meter or exceeded 30 minutes so it's basically warranted for water ingress.

    Two months ago i started wearing my watch in the shower. No problem after 2 months. But i will definitely not wear it at the ocean where is salt water.

    I think the salt water is just as bad as soapy water ;/

    Nope. You can clean the watch from soap very fast with water. But the salt water leave salt even after the water dry off.

    And another important thing is that i clean the watch too in the shower after sport.

    Soap will leave residue in the speaker hole and other areas. Looked at your shower walls lately.

    No reason to wear your watch while showering. Just wash it under clean tap water unless you live in Flint.

    Nope! If water removed soap scum we would never have to clean our showers:confused:

    Just gotta pick your soaps appropriately :) Most synthetic soaps (like most gel hand, body, and dish soaps these days) won't since they lack the proper elements.

    It's just no reason for you. I have to maintain contactable when I am on duty. However, my 6+ is not water resist, so wear the watch while showering is actually the best way for me to solve the problem. I can take my shower, I can remain contactable, I can accept calls, and the watch won't break.

    Yes! Ever since Tim Cook said he shower with his and had no problems, I do the same. Every day no problems.

    The only time it is acceptable to wear AppleWatch during bath time is when you sing the Rubber Ducky Song.

    Apple also state that soap and other similar products will likely deteriorate the waterproofing over time. So personally, I would avoid using your watch in the bath.

    Um, Ocean Water is fine. Apple has a workout for open water swim and refers to the ocean in their support page:

    https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205000

    Apple warns more about soap water than ocean water. I have done both with my Series 2 SS and had no issues. Swam in the Pacific, in a lake for my first triathlon, and showered with it all the time. It still has no issues and is being passed down to another family member as I replaced it with a Series 3 SS w/LTE
