    I'm headed to a water park today with all the fun slides and pools associated with it.

    Is the apple watch water resistant enough to withstand the rigors of being in and out of pools and slides like this today? I have the Sport model.

    Probably, although Apple doesn't recommend it. I wear mine regularly in the shower and often when taking a quick dip in the pool.

    After pool report -- no issues. Still working like a charm.

    I'm totally going to swim with my Apple Watch when I get it. Apple just doesn't want to advertise it as waterproof (for good reason) and opts only to claim it's water resistant, but I'm confident in its waterproofing from what I've read. I'm waiting for version 2.

    Get the bragi dash and you'll be able to enjoy music as you swim. I got them and find them awesome!
