Hi


Apple Watch Series 3 models are sufficiently water resistant that they can be used, for example, when shallow water swimming.


After swimming (or otherwise exposing it to anything other than fresh water), be sure to clean your Apple Watch and band by gently rinsing it with warm tap water. The watch and band should also then be dried using a soft, lint-free cloth.

In respect of bathing and showering, note that Apple specifically advises against exposing your Apple Watch to soap or soapy water - such as when showering or bathing - or to high velocity water.


Your Apple Watch should also be kept with the recommended operating temperature range (see the article below) and you should also avoid exposing it to dramatic differences in temperature.


More information and detailed handling instructions are provided by Apple here:

Hey there!

Apple Watch Series 3 is water-resistant up to 50m, however regarding warranty, I could not find the answer to, I contacted Apple about this and they said:

" so the limited warranty covers manufacturer defects, so water would be up to the technician to decide if a replacement/refund is given, depending on the extent of the damage!, I know this isn't completely straight forward, however it is a bit of a "grey area" as the Apple Watch is not necessarily completely water proof" - Richard, Apple Support


Hope this helped,

Vis 🙂
