    Someone said he did, the speaker got very wet (apparently because he tried music in the shower). The device's speaker stopped working until it dried out. It's not recommended by Samsung however. IP67 is water resistant, not waterproof. Personally speaking, it's not worth the risk.

    I did yesterday and forgot to take it off. Nothing happened and it works just fine but I probably won't do it again. For minor splashes and such I am comfortable with it but continual water flow in a shower...not so much.

    I can't think of one single reason to wear a watch, of any kind, in the shower.

    Seems like a watch in the shower would hinder my washing abilities or bother me at the least. Usually when I want music in the shower, I blast my speakers from my computer. Non-conducive to the kids sleeping after 8 though. lol

    Can't stop laughing at this. Too funny. I'm such a fan of dry humor.

    I forgot I had it on till I was almost done. So ..... I can say, yes, I did and no problems at all. It's been over 13 hours now and no side affects as of yet. I think it should be fine as long as your not drowning the watch continuously under the shower head. I'll do it again. My last watch was water resistant for up to 100 meters and after always having it on the last 6yrs. You don't even know it's there. And the Gear 2 is so much more lighter than my last watch I didn't even give it a thought this morning.

    I know that this is an old thread, but reading it I thought I would throw this out. IP67 does not mean water resistant, it means waterproof for 30 minutes at less than 1 meter. So based on standards, the water from a shower shouldn't bother the watch. However, that doesn't account for soap, shampoo, etc..., which lower the surface tension of water and can cause it so seep into places that it would normally not go.

    FWIW,
