    I am excited to get it in the next few days. As noted in the recent Youtube videos, we need to keep humidity, liquid, and moisture from the watch, especially near the sim card and display area (for me the speaker area too). Since many of us seem to love the gym, running, and maybe doing dishes...how can we prevent these precautions from possibly damaging our watch?

    When I saw that I actually was alarmed. What's the point of promoting IP67 and then say that. Makes me wonder the quality of the water resistant as I can go as long as 6-8 miles on a jog/hike

    IMO, doing all you mention, except the DISHES. IMO, the dishes would be out of place. Example, if you were sporting a ROLEX, would you wash dishes with it on??????

    This is definitely a concern of mine as well. While I can compromise and not use it while swimming I most certainly should be able to use the Gear S when it is hot outside while running. So it seems a protection/replacement plan might be needed if the Gear S can't really handle common moisture conditions like perspiration or a rain shower that might happen when on the beach while running.

    I wonder if these can provide some protection since it is for the screen and body.

    If you guys are wanting something more fitness based I highly suggest the Basis Peak. I had the second version and I loved it but it was hideous. The basis peak will be out the 10th so I highly suggest looking into it.

    Ehosey2. The videos show screen protectors are not recommended on the watch. Besides, it also isn't nescessary to prevent scratches as I have initially thought.

    Agreed...I pre-ordered it from Amazon to take a look. Hope I don't need to keep it.

    I saw where it said that screen protectors can interfere with the sensors but I was a bit curious about what amount of protection the body protector might provide... probably just cosmetic and nothing more.

    Ah, got it.

    As for preventing sweat accumulation, I would have a small micro fiber cloth with me during my run and tennis, and even on a super humid day...just to wipe off the sweat off as needed. I know, sounds like a hassle, but I guess it's worth it as a trade off.

    Work that much hassle I'd be better off just buying the SW3

    If I had a Rolex I most likely would not do the dishes... But to keep it serious: I went scuba diving to over 30m with a guy wearing a 10k dollar Rolex . His logic: I paid for waterproof luxury watch.
