    Title says it all really, has anyone been brave enough to swim with the watch yet?

    I've always swam with my pebble, and as I always keep my watch want to with the G.

    Its only IP67 rated so swimming really is not an option for this watch. Its only meant to withstand rain drops or an accidental spill really. You should not swim or shower with it on.

    I dunno about swimming but you can shower with it just fine. I do. Sometimes I use it to go running and afterwards just wear it in the shower and clean it.

    I've showered with it, and apart from the watch getting mighty excited with the droplets hitting the screen it was fine.
    Think I'll give it a week and then go swim. The build quality looks up to it.

    It's only rated for 1 meter. So good luck.

    I can't swim.

    Just kidding. I don't even wear it in the shower because like it was said before, the screen reacts to the water hitting it.

    I swam with mine the other day thinking it was waterproof. Don't do it.

    It started vibrating and the screen started to flicker so I got out quick. I was only in shallow water and never put my wrist in too deep.

    No long term damage from what I can tell, but I won't do it again.

    Casio makes a whole range of robust digital watches. This is their take on water resistance: Degree of Water Resistance of CASIO Quartz Watches - Watches - CASIO

    The new smartwatches may not conform to this. Good luck, anyway. If it was me I'd wear one while washing the dishes, and nothing more adventurous around water than that.

    It doesn't sound like you did any damage to the watch, it was just the water interacting with the touchscreen. Same thing happens when I shower with it on. There's an app called "baby time" that helps mitigate this problem by locking the touchscreen.

    A week later and all seems fine.

    I wouldn't shower with it either. If any of you actually read the user manual and safety advise, it states NOT to use it in the shower as soap and other chemicals could cause damage. I usually charge mine when im in the shower as charging only usually takes about half hour. Safes it from being needlessly being on charge all night.

    the vibration you feel is the watch informing you that it has lost contact with your phone. WiFi and Bluetooth don't work under water. My G and my Samsung do the same thing. I swim daily in my swimming pool, (only 5ft!)

    I think IP67 just means rain drop kinda protection. I even don't let it go in heavy rains.
