Apple Watch were tested for water resistance [video]

It is known that the protection smart watch Apple Watch IPX7 compliant , which means that the device can operate without problems at depths of up to one meter for 30 minutes. These are the data stored in the "data sheet" news. Enthusiasts from YouTube-channel FoneFox decided to check Apple Watch underwater in more severe conditions. The plot begins with a clip that young man pours water device, and then goes into the shower with a watch on hand.

The second stage of the experiment more interesting. Within 15 minutes enthusiasts test Apple Watch in the pool. The guys have ventured to descend to the clock on the depth of several meters, which is more than a statement. In this case, the gadget has shown himself well and worked steadily as during the dive, and after it.
About watertightness Apple Watch manufacturer writes:
"Apple Watch splash-proof and resistant to water, but not completely waterproof. You can, for example, carry and use Apple Watch in training, in the rain, when washing your hands, but immersing them in water is undesirable. Degree of protection Apple Watch complies with IPX7. Leather straps can not be used in the water".
