    Default Is the Gear smartwatch waterproof or concrete-mix-proof? (I work in commercial pool construction)

    Is the Gear smartwatch waterproof? (I work in commercial pool construction)

    I hadn't really thought about it, but my current watch, a Casio Protrek, is immersed in water quite regularly. It didn't even have a problem when I recently got freshly-
    poured concrete mix on it.... just hosed it off and it was still working fine.

    If the Samsung Gear smartwatch is not waterproof, are there other alternatives? I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

    From what I remember Phil Nickinson saying on the AC Podcast, NO. Don't wear it if you plan on being around and water, rain, etc.

    I am the Tegra Champ. What this means is that from time to time NVIDIA might send me new products to try out. This will not affect my thoughts, ideas, or opinions about any product that are discussed in the forums. Those are still my own.

    Get the Sony Smart watch or Pebble smart watch if you want something that'll stand a splash

    Seen mixed reviews...some say that it's not water resistant, others say it is. The manual claims it is made to IP55 standards, meaning it is dust, water and shock resistant.
