Re: Samsung gear s3 and water ?

JUMP TO SOLUTION

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"

"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.
