What does 5ATM mean in Galaxy smartwatches?

Much like IP68 for Galaxy smartphones, a rating of 5ATM denotes the level of water pressure it can withstand. Galaxy Watch, Watch Active3, and Watch3 are all rated 5ATM as well as IP68, meaning that they are water resistant and resistant to water pressure at a depth of up to 50 meters. So you can not only wear it safely in the rain or while taking a shower, you can use it to track your workouts while you're swimming.

To prevent accidental touches or issues when playing in the water, turn on Water Lock mode. This disables the touchscreen, wake-up gesture feature, and watch always on feature. To activate Water Lock mode, simply select the Swimming exercise option and it will be turned on automatically.
