    Water Resistant 100m watches

    Would I be foolish (bordering on stupid) if I took one swimming?

    Does the water resistant term focus on the watches ability to keep working when it is raining as opposed to actually putting the watch in a volume of water?

    I’ve swum, power showered, the lot in 100M watches for years and they’ve all stayed dry as a bone. You’ll be fine.

    My holiday/gym watch is 100m Casio. Swimming, snorkeling, sauna, showering etc handles it all fine.

    Think it has more to do with the impact of the water more than the depth it's submerged at.

    No diving though as previously mentioned no water sports and no messing with the crown or buttons underwater.

    If its an old watch and you care enough to spend money on it you might want to get the seals checked/pressure tested beforehand.

    As long as the watch has been pressure tested in the last year, I’d swim with impunity. I’d be hesitant with a watch that has been serviced or pressure tested for several years or more.

    I'd happily dive with a 100m watch. My underwater camera housing is rated to 100m. Same rating and I dive with that every week.
