Apple Watch Survives Waterproof Test Chamber to 40m, 1000m Lap Swim, 10m Dive [Video]

Check out these new videos of the Apple Watch being tested in a waterproof test chamber to 40m / 140ft, during a 1000m lap pool swim, and off a 10m dive board.

The videos posted by DC Rainmaker indicate that the despite Apple not touting the Apple Watch as waterproof. It appears quite safe to use while performing most water related activities.

I’m impressed, it’s still chugging along after that – with not a single sign of any issues at all. Clearly this is all more than adequate for any sort of casual sweat or showering. Though I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out over the next few weeks just in case.

Of course, the slightly awkward thing is that despite this battery of tests, the unit still isn’t warrantied for any of this, including even a simple shower with soap. Now whether or not an Apple Store employee would question a watch that arrives back dead probably remains to be seen. On the flip side, it’s also clear that it’s probably quite a bit harder to kill the thing than Apple would have you believe.

Take a look at the videos below...
