    I remember hearing of some phones and headphones and even google glass i believe that have come out that feature bone conductivity for audio. I wonder if they remove the speakers and replace them with this technology if it works on your wrist in order to get a perfect seal on the watches internals. Although it may only work with bones near your head, not sure. Just a thought.

    But speakers have been waterproof for years.
    You can make a plastic speaker cone, totally water tight simple.
    I cannot see how the speaker is a problem in this instance

    That would have to vibrate so hard in order to reach your ear that it would probably break your wrist, ulna and radius.

    Lol, exactly, bone conductivity for sound only works if the bone is near your ear (ie, your skull).

    Not only would this not work, but the speaker on the apple watch is already waterproof.
