Just trying to gather a few opinions and experiences really about when you take the watch off to do a certain activity, hobby or bit of work. Obviously the watch is designed for slightly more day-to-day use than a phone or an iPad hence it's "water resistant" rating but where do you draw the line? --------------------- Personally, I've stopped wearing my watch in the shower. Not because I need to but because showering is usually the first or last thing I do in the day and I will only need to take it off again to dry my wrist and the band anyway so it makes more sense to put it on when I get out in the morning rather than the second I leave my bed. I don't plan to wear my watch when I wash my car and there will be gallons of dirty water involved but I will be putting it back on to carry on with detailing (just a hobby of mine) where I'll be using products like polishes, waxes and glazes. Similar situation with pot washing although a few plates with just crumbs on in clean water isn't going to make me take it off. Finally, some people may question my choice but I continue to use my watch in my factory job where it's often exposed and likely to get scratched up a bit. In my eyes it's going to happen anyway over time and at work is actually where I use my watch the most as I can't over-use my phone but nobody seems to notice when I tap away on my wrist checking notifications, the weather and actually just the time. That said, I've now had it over a week with the odd bump and scrape and the condition is still 'out of the box' perfect.
