    After seeing all the torture tests, I will be using my Apple Watch Sport (space grey) in the shower. Although, I'm also planning on buying a black leather loop and was wondering if it will be ok with water.

    I know it may seem like a dumb question...leather under water..sounds abvious...but since it's a watch which normally would get splashed with water while washing hands, is it possible that the leather they used is good underwater??

    I doubt it would fare well if it was completely submerged.

    Apple say on their website that while the watch is water resistant, the leather bands are not.
