Well, my gen1 Pixel Watch went out in a blaze of glory. I've taken it for a swim countless times. Last night I guess it was done. About 20 minutes after getting out of the pool and drying everything off, it started vibrating and the screen flickering. I saw what looked like the battery percentage which was red and appeared out of power, then it turned off. It will no longer charge or do anything. :cry:

I tried all my charging cabling, confirmed the contacts were clean and dry, and countless other fruitless attempts. It was a good servant until then. So, now the proud owner of a new PW2 w/LTE on Xfinity Mobile.

Neither the 1 or 2 are waterproof by the way. Only water resistant. It is not recommended for you to submerge them.

From what I'm seeing it actually doesnt even have an IP rating meaning water resistant is conservite at best (compared to others).

OP, fact that it survived once, let alone a few previous swims were the cats 9 lives which you hit the quota.

RIP.

When you by a new one, keep in mine IP rating are also standing water, meaning, splashes are OK but movement in water is not in that rating, only if it dropped and you pull it out.

I don't even trust expensive 5ATM watches. 10ATM is where I consider anything "waterproof" (waterproof does exist).

Thanks all. I thought it was good for swimming as I've had been using Google FIT to track. Shows what I know.

So far no real noticeable differences.
