Is the Samsung Gear S3 really Waterproof? - August 2019

The Samsung Gear S3 is IP68 certified — which basically means that it is water proof! You can wear it in the shower or swim with it and it should keep on ticking unless you go deep under water.

I really like it when my smartwatches are waterproof because I like to wear them in the shower and I don’t want to have to take them off when giving my kids a bath…and other reasons!

Here’s a good water test:


My name is David and I'm a total tech nerd. I always have been and always will be. I've really gotten into smartwatches since they've come out. They show great potential to change our lives almost as much, if not just as much, as smartphones have. I'm also an internet entrepreneur that makes my living via tech.
