    Galaxy Smart Watch

    Hi, all! Wondering if my "50m" Galaxy Smart watch is water resistant to swimming in 5 ft of water (pool). Anyone use theirs while swimming?

    Yes it is.
    Yes I do.
    50meters is not 5 feet.

    Yes, I know 50m is not 5 ft. I also know 50m does not mean you can dive to 50m. I understand fluid dynamics, as I had to take 2 semesters of physics to become a doctor.

    I don't want to insult anyone but 50m is 50m and it is suitable for swimming by design, testing and intended use.
    Smartwatches comply with same ISO standards as regular watch. Meaning 50m pressure in water and 50m +10% overpressure testing in gas.
    But for sure it up to wearer to make informed decision and only shower with what he/she finds safe and soothing.
    These subjects appear on the forum every few weeks and it always ... same.
    Unless you super man and can swim faster than speed of jet boat there is nothing to be concerned.

    Timex been putting their 25m WR watches through motorboat and jet ski "tests" and at that time 25m were what it should be 25m and nobody been asking why i need 500m watch if all you can do is 5m down.
    It should be special!

    I regularly swim with my Galaxy Watch and had no issue. Like someone said before, if it’s rated to 50m then you can safely swim with it.

    Greetings! I've used mine swimming on a number of occasions, so you shouldn't have any issues with yours.

    4Water-resistant up to 50 meters per ISO standard 22810:2010. Not intended for scuba diving. Avoid excessive, sudden temperature changes and high-velocity activities. Rinse in fresh water/dry after use in sea water or chlorinated water.

    Just don't use your scuba gear, shoot it out of a water cannon or drop any dry ice in the pool and you should be OK.
