    Ok. So I've had my Apple Watch (series 2) for awhile now but today I'm considering taking it INTO the pool.

    I'm nervous. I know I can but have any of you actually done it?!?!

    I personally would not risk it.

    I'm curious. Did you take it into the pool?

    It should be possible, but I take mine off as well when I intend to go into the water.

    Apple wouldn't have the option of a swimming workout if they didn’t feel perfectly confident that an Apple Watch series 2 wouldn’t be perfectly safe during such usage. It has an official water resistance rating of 50 metres.

    Update I DID take it in the pool. I swam for 5 hours on and off. Everytime I got out I turned the dial to get the water out and I dried it off. Still working fine!!

    It's nice because it tracked my movement and calories so it wasn't like I was a lazy bum LoL

    I'm glad it worked out for you. As much as I love my Apple Watch (Original Series Black Stainless Steel), it never goes near water (pool, beach, sand, ectera). I actually use my $40 Timex Ironman for that kind of stuff.

    The Series 1 isn't made for water, so good thing it doesn't go near water.
