Waterproof Vs. Water-Resistant

As we discussed above, all Apple watches are water-resistant but not waterproof. Water-resistant is a technology in which your device can handle low-level water. It depends on the built-in quality of the product as the watch blocks some degrees of water.

Whereas waterproof means you can dip the product in the water. Apple states on its website that you can wear an Apple watch while swimming. Well, it’s true because the newer Apple Watch models like Apple Watch Series 2/3/4/5/6 have unique water-resistance technology, which means they can easily withstand 50 meters of water depth.

Even with this technology, Apple still does not allow you to wear the watch during diving or water skiing. It is also recommended to avoid the situation where water comes at high speed on the watch ports. Apple Watch comes with a special water lock feature that prevents water from operating the touchscreen of your watch.
