    From the Apple Watch website on water resistivity:

    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.

    Apple Watch water durability

    I was looking on the Apple Store Apple Watch page and it said it was resistant for washing hands and in the rain but not submergable, just a heads up for those that swim.

    Interesting find. http://www.apple.com/watch/battery.html

    "Apple Watch battery performance claims are based on test results from the 38mm Apple Watch. A 42mm Apple Watch typically experiences longer battery life."
