What is the mean of Waterproof on Android Watches?

Got an email from our friend from South Asia, she asked what is the mean of waterproof on Android Watches?

You want to know the  truth about waterproof watch.  The actual truth is that no watch is waterproof, since  there will always a limit to how much water pressure a watch can handle.

Here is what I got to know from  Tourneau.com.   The term “waterproof” implies that a watch can’t leak under any circumstance, that no moisture will permeate the case and get into the movement. However, under certain circumstances anything can leak. Therefore, in the watch industry, we refer to a watch’s ability to withstand water pressure as water resistance.

Life Waterproof

Well , it may look a weird jargon for many. What the hell if Life Waterproof? Don’t get confused  with it, life waterproof simply means you may wash your hand wearing even the best android watch or smartwatches but is you go for swimming with it you may need to throw it thereafter.

The IPX Rating

The IPX standard gives you a better view  of how water resistant your Android watch is, compared to vague marketing terms such as waterproof.  According to Boy’s Life

  • IPX1 means that an item is not really protected against water.
  • IPX8 means that you can safely take the item underwater — although the depth and time that it is safe underwater can vary.

A lot of ‘waterproof’ electronics are IPX7, which means that they will be OK if you accidentally drop them in a stream and get them out immediately.

We encourage shoppers to read through description of the products sold at arimoney.com to determine levels of waterproof best android watches at here.

A lot of consumers simply misunderstood the meaning of waterproof by jumping into swimming pools or into the ocean for diving activities.
