I am not again willing to take that risk with a 300.00€ watch. The manual gives crystal clear guidelines and the gear cannot be submerged nor immersed in water. IF water damage is found in the watch Sony will not pay for the replacement or repair, nor should they after making it clear its water capabilities, or lack of.
Like it or not the watch should have been manufactured to a higher IP level. Further models will be.
I have this gut feeling the Gear is going to cause Samsung some real headaches? They can afford it though
