    What does everyone think on the iWatch being waterproof? I really hope it is! My watch just started getting condensation in it, so I'm now eagerly anticipating it!

    I'd be surprised if it wasn't waterproof.

    I've read it will be waterproof, and it won't.

    The difficulty will be the charging. If they use a typical corded charger with plug in, it's gonna be a problem? They could use nano coating tech I believe they acquired. Or, they could use solar power.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't. I think Tim Cook is a big fan of Nike's fuel band. Which I think will influence the thinking behind the iWatch.

    Well, it would be one less reason for people to buy a product they don't really need.

    I think we can agree that Apple hasn't exactly been on the ball as of late.

    I think it would be stupid to not to make the device waterproof. As for charging, I'd like to see contactless charging :p

    One can dream!

    Kinetic charging would probably be a good idea.

    I agree, that would make perfect sense.

    Be careful though John. You wouldn't want to overcharge it... ;-)

    Considering that my rechargeable Ambit is waterproof to 100m I'd say that making a rechargeable device waterproof is not impossible. Solar would be nice. Induction would be cool. Lots of options there to make it waterproof. How else are to going to check your email or update your bookface from the shower?

    If it's not waterproof then it is pointless
