Can You Shower with Apple Watch 7?

Is my Apple Watch waterproof? 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.

Are you wondering whether you can shower with your Apple Watch 7? As it turns out, the Apple Watch is waterproof, but you need to know a few things before you dive headfirst into the water. So, let’s dive into the details and what you need to know about the Apple Watch and water.

Firstly, which Apple Watch do you have? If you have Apple Watch Series 0 and Apple Watch Series 1, those are not waterproof, but they are water-resistant. You can wash your hands, take a shower, and fall into the water, and it should be okay. But, it is not recommended to go swimming with them.

On the other hand, if you have Apple Watch Series 2 and up, including the Apple Watch 7, they are waterproof, and you can go swimming, take a shower, go to the ocean, and even take a bath with them. However, it is recommended not to use shampoo, conditioner, soap, perfume, or deodorant with the Apple Watch. These beauty products destroy the water seal, and it is best to keep them away from the Apple Watch.

When it comes to Apple Watch bands, some bands are waterproof, while others are not. The sport band, nylon band, and braided loop bands are waterproof, but leather and steel bands are not. Moreover, if your Apple Watch is cracked or scratched, it is not recommended to take it underwater. Water could go in, and it could damage the Apple Watch.

Water lock mode and water eject mode are two features of the Apple Watch that you should know about. Water lock mode locks the screen of your Apple Watch, so it will not call your mom, boss, or do things you do not want while swimming. To turn it on, swipe up from the control center and tap on the water icon. Once you are done with your swim, swipe up on the digital crown to eject the water from the microphone and speaker.

Finally, if you put your Apple Watch in saltwater or chlorine, rinse it off with fresh water to get rid of any residue that could damage your watch.

So, there you have it, folks. You can shower with your Apple Watch 7, and you can even go swimming with it. Just keep in mind the dos and don’ts mentioned above, and you are good to go.
