Question: shower after gym with series 3 nike+ edition

Hi,as for title, can you take a shower with the watch? Some tell me about yes, others not.... I for now I made it once and after having carried out the procedure of unlocking the water, from the crates has gone out some water and foaming.... I repeated the procedure twice and it all works properly. Some told me to use it in the shower but that are dangerous the soaps, which seems absurd because one takes a shower precisely by washing with soaps. I'm in Italy. Thank you

Apple Watch Series 3, watchOS 4.2.2, nike+ edition

Hey there, Birkhoff92!

Thanks for stopping by the Apple Support Communities. If I understand your question, you'd like to know if your Apple Watch Series 3 Nike edition is able to be worn in the shower. I'd be happy to help!

The information in About Apple Watch water resistance - Apple Support should answer this question for you, specifically the following section:

Can I go swimming or take a shower with my Apple Watch?

Apple Watch Series 1 and Apple Watch (1st generation) are splash and water resistant, but submerging Apple Watch Series 1 and Apple Watch (1st generation) isn't recommended. Apple Watch Series 2 and Apple Watch Series 3 may be used for shallow water activities like swimming in a pool or ocean. However, Apple Watch Series 2 and Apple Watch Series 3 shouldn't be used for scuba diving, water skiing, or other activities involving high velocity water or submersion below shallow depth.

Showering with Apple Watch Series 2 and Apple Watch Series 3 is ok, but we recommend not exposing Apple Watch to soaps, shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and perfumes as they can negatively affect water seals and acoustic membranes. Apple Watch should be cleaned with fresh water and dried with a lint free-cloth if it comes in contact with anything other than fresh water.

Water resistance isn't a permanent condition and may diminish over time. Apple Watch can't be rechecked or resealed for water resistance. The following may affect the water resistance of your Apple Watch and should be avoided:

  • Dropping Apple Watch or subjecting it to other impacts.
  • Exposing Apple Watch to soap or soapy water, for example while showering or bathing.
  • Exposing Apple Watch to perfume, solvents, detergent, acids or acidic foods, insect repellent, lotions, sunscreen, oil, or hair dye.
  • Exposing Apple Watch to high velocity water, for example while water skiing.
  • Wearing Apple Watch in the sauna or steam room.

Not all bands are appropriate for water use. For example, the stainless steel and leather bands aren't water resistant and shouldn't be exposed to liquids.



Have a great day!

so i do that after gym for example, and then fresh with water ? I ask because after I took a shower and made the water release procedure, came out of the froth that then took off; also because I do not know in America but here in Italy when you take a shower you use the soap to wash ... the article I had read

Hey, there, Birkhoff92,

Thanks for responding back. It looks like you still need some clarification on whether you can wear your Apple Watch in the shower, and to answer that I'd like to revisit the quoted information from About Apple Watch water resistance - Apple Support in the last response, which states that soap and soapy water can affect the water resistance of your Apple Watch, so you should remove it before showering:

The following may affect the water resistance of your Apple Watch and should be avoided:

  • Dropping Apple Watch or subjecting it to other impacts.
  • Exposing Apple Watch to soap or soapy water, for example while showering or bathing.



Cheers.
