Can Apple Watch Series 7 go underwater?
Your Apple Watch is water resistant, but not waterproof. For example, you can wear and use your Apple Watch during activities such as exercise (exposure to sweat is OK), walking in rain, and washing your hands.
Is the Apple Watch Series 7 Waterproof? Like every model of Apple Watch since the Series 2, the Series 7 boasts a WR50 rating, which means it's water-resistant up to 50 meters (about 164 feet) below the surface.
- Touch and hold the bottom of the display when your watch face or an app is visible. Wait for Control Center to show, then swipe up. You can open Control Center from any screen.
- Tap the Water Lock button . The Water Lock icon appears at the top of the watch face.
Designed by Huish Outdoors in collaboration with Apple, Oceanic+ enables recreational scuba divers to take the watch they wear every day to previously unreachable depths — up to 40 meters, or 130 feet, to be exact — with the all-new depth gauge and water temperature sensors on Apple Watch Ultra.
The best update is the fact that the camera can now be used underwater, given the fact that the phone has a waterproof rating of IP67. This means that you can use it underwater for up to 30 minutes, provided that the depth is not more than one meter.
You do not have to activate the Water Lock before you get your Apple Watch wet. You can manually clear water by turning on the Water Lock. Here's how to get water out of Apple Watch with Water Lock: Swipe up from the bottom of the watch face to open Control Center.
The water lock prevents false taps that would be caused by the water by turning off touch screen control. Put the water lock on before the shower and when you exit water lock mode it will eject water from the Watch.
Apple Watch Ultra and its depth sensor are compatible with third-party apps that can serve as a dive computer for recreational scuba diving to 130 feet (40 meters).
These models have a rating of IP68 under IEC standard 60529 (maximum depth of 2 meters up to 30 minutes): iPhone 11. iPhone XS. iPhone XS Max.
Before we go crazy about Google's latest smartphone, the Pixel, there's one area where the iPhone clearly has it beat: you can use it in the shower. One of the benefits of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is the first Apple mobile device that's water resistant.
Can I take my iPhone 13 in the pool?
Apple's iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 lineups feature the best water resistance rating on an iPhone to date with an IP68 rating. This means that the devices can withstand water up to a depth of six meters (19.7 feet) for up to 30 minutes.
Before you swim, tap the water drop icon in the Command Center. Be aware that the Watch is only water resistant, not waterproof, meaning it can't handle lower depths (as in scuba diving) or higher force (like water skiing).
Engaging the lock is optional, unless you are recording a Pool Swim or Open Water Swim workout via the Workout app, in which case it is enabled automatically.
DO I have to put on the "water lock" feature on my Apple Watch Series 2 before showering? It is recommended by Apple that when Apple Watch is used in or around water that the user activates water lock mode as this prevents accidental water damage to your Watch.
