Is the Gear Sport Water Resistant?
Swim-proof and ready for anything, Gear Sport keeps working in the pool, the rain and even in the shower. Gear Sport is water-resistant up to 50 meters/164 feet so you can keep track of your workout even under water!
Gear Sport passed military specification (MIL-STD-810G) testing against specific conditions, including drops from 4.9 feet, extreme temperatures, dust, shock/vibration, and low pressure/high altitude. Gear Sport may not perform in all extreme conditions.
Water Resistance Tips
Alright, before you start thinking your Gear Sport is a superhero, just know it's not indestructible. Make sure you follow these tips carefully to prevent damage:
Whenever your Gear gets wet, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.
Do not expose the Gear to water at high pressure.
After use in sea water, rinse in fresh water and dry it. Failure to rinse the Gear in fresh water and dry it as instructed may cause the Gear to suffer from operability or cosmetic issues.
If dropped or receives an impact, the water resistant features of the Gear Sport may be damaged.
Avoid excessive, sudden temperature changes and high velocity activities. Falls and shocks may breach integrity.
The Gear Sport is not intended for scuba diving.
