Giood morning thanks for sharing. I recently dropped my watch in a cup of juice, it was in there for at least 30 minutes. Once I took it out and waited for like 15 minutes it started to work. No problems since.

I was also told that the watch was unrepairable due to water damage. I have never used it in a manner other than what the Samsung manual stated. When it went out, it rebooted several times, and then eventually turned completely black. I still have 8 months left on my warranty. I feel like I have been duped by Samsung.

I have encountered the same issue/problem with GEAR S3. It took forever to reach a human to have me send in the watch. After all of that frustration, I was told there was liquid damage. It has never been submersed. There was sweat obviously, because I worked out with it. I am so livid that they did not honor the warranty. I thought the GEAR s3 was the best thing ever, but now I consider it a piece of Sh*t. I have lost my faith in Samsung USA mobile.

I go running and lifting weights (so a lot of sweating) 2 to 3 times a week for the past 2 months.  I somtimes forget and shower with it on afterwards and never had a problem.

I experienced the exact scenario exactly as you described and Samsung would not take responsibility.
This watch is for training, there was no warning regarding sweat!
I wish samsung would honor the warranty

There is a class action lawsuit for the Galaxy S7 and S8 series for the failure to be water resistant as advertised.
