Samsung smart watch water resistance tips

Galaxy Watch4 with water droplets

No matter what nature throws at you - whether it's rain or puddles - your watch will be perfectly fine. That's because many Samsung smart watches and fitness bands are water resistant. In other words, you can keep track of your workout when it's raining, or even underwater!

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by provider, phone, or watch. Watches may not perform in all extreme conditions.

Water resistance tips for your Samsung smart watch

Even though your watch is water resistant, please remember that it's not indestructible. Make sure you follow these tips carefully to prevent any potential damage:

  • Whenever your watch gets wet, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.

  • Do not expose the watch to water at high pressure levels.

  • After using the watch in seawater, rinse it in fresh water and dry it. Failure to do this as instructed may cause the watch to suffer from operability or cosmetic issues.

  • If the watch is dropped or receives a hard impact, the water resistance may be lessened.

  • Avoid excessive, sudden temperature changes and high velocity activities. Falls and shocks may weaken the structural integrity of the watch.

  • The watch is not intended for scuba diving.

  • The Galaxy Fit, Galaxy Fit2, Gear S3, Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Watch3, Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Watch Active2, Galaxy Watch4, and Galaxy Watch4 Classic can stay under 5 feet of water for up to 30 minutes.

  • The Galaxy Fit, Gear S3, Gear Sport, Gear Fit2 Pro, Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Watch3, Galaxy Watch Active, and Galaxy Watch Active2, Galaxy Watch4, and Galaxy Watch4 Classic have all passed military specification (MIL-STD-810G) testing against specific conditions, including drops from 4.9 feet, extreme temperatures, dust, shock and vibration, low pressure, and high altitude.
