ok guys, listen up. I don't give a crap if your Apple Watch, is, water resistant. do, not, take, a, shower, with, it! I haven't done this, but a book I just read said it was safe. that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. it's ok to swim with it if you use it right, but it doesn't need to follow you into the shower.
It would have more submersion in liquid while swimming than it would if showered with. Now, I tend to agree that its just plain stupid to shower with electronics on, but in a shower, the water bounces off you mostly. You're not submerged in it, it hits you, and bounces off. That's what makes showers a better idea than taking baths, because while the soap binds to the dirt and the water sweeps it off your body, you're still floating around in dirty water for a while. A shower is different because when you use your soap or shower gel, you're scrubbing it off of you, and the water is carrying off the soap or shower gel. SO the watch would have water hitting it, and it would just roll off.
Think about swimming though. You're in a pool of water, the bottom half of you is splayed out behind you, you're kicking with your legs, and stroking with your arms. Whenever you do a full stroke, your watch is being submerged until your arm breaks the surface of the water. Sure you try to keep it as close to the surface as possible to gain as much speed as you can, trying to reduce drag and make yourself hydrodynamically stable, but the watch is still being submerged. If it can survive that, it can survive a shower.
well, the difference is you won't get soap on your watch in the pool
I'd consider chlorine to be worse than soap, most soap is on the basic side of the PH scale.
Should I even say that it is widely known that chlorine is... ah, nevermind, everyone already knows.
well, then you explain that to apple
According to the Apple website, Apple Watch may be used in water to a depth of fifty metres with the exception of high-velocity water activities. This means that Apple Watch has been found to be perfectly usable whilst having a shower. If Apple thought something like soap would be harmful to the watch, they would directly advise customers of this.
