Add me to the list of unsatisfied customers. No more Samsung for me.

 

 

I never went swimming with it, only mild showers/hand washing.

 

"We regret that we were unable to complete the repair of our Samsung product. After performing a thorough examination of your device, it has been found to be un-repairable, due to liquid damage"

 

1)

"Devices backed by an international standard rating of IP68 are deemed fit enough to withstand dust, dirt and sand, and are resistant to submersion up to a maximum depth of 1.5m underwater for up to thirty minutes."

Reference https://www.samsung.com/global/galaxy/what-is/ip68/

2)

"The Gear S3 has an IP68 rating, which means it is dust-tight and protected against immersion in up to 1.5m of fresh water for 30 minutes"

I swim with my watch all the time.  I don't shower because of the soap, but I have never had an issue with my watch after swimming.

 got the newest Samsung watch, and it died after 2 months. sent in, water damage, on a watch advertised to use for swimming. What a joke. This is a defect on the seals. So I need to spend 200 on a 400 dollar item that will now not be under warranty.
