Is my Samsung Gear S™ water or dust-resistant?

Your Samsung Gear S™ is rated IP67 using the Ingress Protection rating system.

Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Dust and Water Resistance

The touchscreen and other features may not work properly if the device is used in water or other liquids.

The dust rating for your Gear S is 6 (highest level of protection), and the water resistance rating is 7 (water-resistant up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes). Despite this classification, your device is not impervious to water damage in any situation.

Follow these tips carefully to prevent damage to the device:

  • Do not immerse the device in water deeper than 1 meter for more than 30 minutes.
  • Do not expose the device to water at high pressure, such as ocean waves or a waterfall.
  • If your hands are wet, dry them thoroughly before handling the device.
  • Do not expose the device to salt water, ionized water, or soapy water.
  • Be careful not to drop the device, as its water and dust-resistant features may be damaged.
  • If the device gets wet, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.
  • Ensure that the microphone or the speaker is clean and dry by wiping it with a dry cloth.

WARNING: If you feel discomfort while using the device, stop using it and remove it from your wrist. To avoid device malfunction, skin discomfort or damage, and battery draining, an initial warning will appear on the device if it reaches a specific temperature. If the device temperature continues to rise, a second warning will appear, and all device functions except outgoing 911 calls will be turned off. If you are on a call with 911 when the second warning appears, the call will remain active until you end it. If the device temperature rises further, a third warning will appear, and the entire device will shut down. Any 911 call that is connected at the time will remain active until you end the call. However, no new calls, including 911 calls, can be made until the device cools down to a specific temperature.
