Answer:

Depends on the series of Apple Watch you have.


While the Series 1 can take some splashing, its not recommended to to have it in contact with large amounts of water for extended periods of time. As such showering with it is not recommended.


The Series 2 and 3, can take a shower just fine, though soap and other cleaning items pose is an issue as they can adversely affect its water resistance and water seals.
