Does the Gear S have water resistance feature?

Last Update Date : Apr 20. 2018

Even though Gear S has the water-resistance feature of IP67 level, the device

may be damaged if water or dust enters the device. Follow these tips carefully to

prevent damage to the device and to maintain the water- and dust-resistant

performance of the device.


• Do not immerse the device in water deeper than 1 m and keep it submerged

 for more than 30 minutes.

• Do not expose the device to water moving with force, such as water running

from a tap, ocean waves, or waterfalls.

• If the device or your hands are wet, dry them thoroughly before handling the device.

• The rubber seal fitted to the SIM card cover is an important component of the device.

Take care when opening and closing the SIM card cover to avoid damaging the

rubber seal. Also, ensure that the rubber seal is free from debris, such as sand

or dust to prevent damage to the device.

• If the device is exposed to freshwater, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.

If the device is exposed to any liquid other than freshwater, rinse the device with

freshwater immediately and dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. Failure to rinse

the device in freshwater and dry it as instructed may cause the device to suffer

from operability or cosmetic issues.

• If the device is dropped or receives an impact, the water-and dust-resistant

features of the device may be damaged.
