Okay this is my 2nd Samsung watch. That's right 2nd one, I love Samsung but these watches needs more work. Now look, my first watch went out because I sweat really bad when I work. So yea the "motherboard" short circuited from that. The recent one I have I barley had my hand under water "for seconds" not minutes SECONDS! Now I'm having problems with my touchscreen response. I can't even change my watch face or nothing now. I have the time, that's it. So I ask, what is REALLY considered "Waterproof"? Because these watches aren't. Not buying another you have taking enough money from me already.
Well they aren't waterproof. They are water resistant. There is a difference and with water resistance it can only be in water for so long at a certain depth. I can't speak on why your watch was ruined. But I recently upgraded from a original galaxy watch after 3-4 years maybe and haven't had those issues. I also work in extreme conditions hot/cold and in water at times. I'd warranty it and call it a day. I also think water temp might affect it and also if you are in salt water or not. But the watches aren't waterproof. Just water resistant. Hope this was a little help.
Get the galaxy watch active 2, it's waterproof, I have been scuba diving with mine, I have been swimming, I shower with it daily, wash dishes, no issues. Sorry you've had rotten luck
