Can I shower with an Apple Watch Ultra?

Apple Watch Ultra is designed to endure tough outdoor activities and adventures. So wondering whether or not you can take a shower with your Apple Watch Ultra is something you should consider.

Despite what you may think, Apple Watches are all water resistant but not waterproof. So technically you should be able to shower with your Apple Watch Ultra right?

Well, that’s the tricky part. Despite being water resistant, don’t forget that Apple watches are not waterproof, which means you can’t expect to submerge it in water for an extended period of time and not damage it in the process.

If you’re wondering whether or not you can shower with your Apple Watch Ultra, we’ll talk more about that in this article.

Is my Apple Watch Ultra waterproof?

As we just said, Apple Watch Ultra is water resistant but not waterproof. So you can use it during recreational and adventure activities such as hiking, trekking, etc.

However, Apple suggests that you do not expose your Apple Watch Ultra to soap or shower gel while showering. So if you only shower with water with minimal exposure to water, it’s fine to use this while showering.

But if you indulge in an extensive shower routine with lots of soaps, oils, or creams, we recommend not wearing your Apple Watch during that phase.

Can I go diving with an Apple Watch Ultra?

The Apple Watch Ultra is water resistant up to 40 meters in water, which means you can wear it while diving, swimming or even snorkeling and other water activities.

However, we recommend using it only for shallow water activities and not for the more deep water diving expeditions as this will eventually cause problems with the device. Submerging the Apple Watch Ultra in water is not recommended at all.

In addition to the actual watch, you should also pay attention to the straps. Not every Apple Watch Ultra band is suitable for prolonged exposure to water. If you are wearing a stainless steel or leather strap, they are not water resistant, so you have to be careful.

Should I be concerned if my Apple Watch Ultra is wet?

If you’ve exposed your Apple Watch Ultra to water for an extended period of time, removing the water isn’t as hard as you think.

You can start with a lint-free absorbent cloth to wipe off the excess water and then dry as much as possible. If you’ve been wearing it while showering, make sure to wipe off the excess immediately after getting out.

If you notice that the sound is muffled, do not put anything in the speakers or ports. You could end up damaging it even more. What we recommend is to let it air dry for 24-48 hours first and then check that everything is working properly.

Conclusion

Apple Watch Ultra is a lot more resilient, especially when you go on an adventure. So while you can shower with it, there are certain limitations to be aware of. We hope this article gives you a basic overview of all the basic information about it.
