“Over in Australia, the team at FoneFox have already been putting the Apple Watch through its paces underwater,” Benjamin Mayo reports for 9to5Mac.
“Apple claims an IPX7 water-resistance rating for its device, which means it can withstand 1 metre of submersion for 30 minutes,” Mayo reports. “However, companies often conservatively state the limits of waterproofness for legal reasons.”
FoneFox submerged the Apple Watch Sport underwatcer while swimming fro a full 15 minutes and had no issues whatsoever.
