If you’re not into the tech industry, you might not have heard of the Waterproof Watch.
This waterproof watch is meant to be worn in rain or rain-soaked conditions, with the wearer’s feet in contact with the screen.
The waterproof version of the Watch comes in a variety of colors, and it comes in black, red, blue, and yellow.
You can pick one up for under $100, or if you’re looking for a cheaper option, you can get a $50 waterproof version from Amazon for a whopping $300.
It’s a pretty attractive deal for a smartwatch that doesn’t even come with a charging station.
But that’s not the only reason you might want a waterproof watch.
A waterproof phone might not be as waterproof as you think.
The watch’s waterproof rating is based on the amount of moisture it contains.
Water that gets in the water will evaporate faster than water that doesn.
This means if you wear a waterproof smartwatch in a water-logged environment, the phone might be more susceptible to damage from rain.
Waterproof phones also aren’t always waterproof, so if you want to protect your phone from drops or splashes, you should consider using a phone that has a water resistant coating.
The best waterproof phones are made with a material that’s resistant to water.
The type of material determines how well a phone can withstand a drop or splash.
You’ll want to choose a phone with a waterproof coating, since it will prevent water from entering your phone, as well as absorb some of the splash damage it may cause.
There are three types of waterproof phone materials: silicone, which is an insulating layer on your phone’s glass; polycarbonate (PC), which is a flexible polymer made of carbon; and mineral glass, which provides a surface that’s water-resilient.
The main difference between waterproof and non-waterproof phones is the water resistance rating.
While the water resistant rating of the watch is based solely on the number of water molecules in the phone’s casing, non-durable phones can have a higher water resistance value.
For example, the iPhone 7 Plus with a water resistance of 10 is rated as having a waterproof rating of 15.
That means the phone will withstand a 3.7 meter drop of water from the side of the table.
However, if you drop it from a height of 15 meters, it’s rated as only having a rating of 14.
It’ll still take a good amount of water to completely break the phone in half.
If you decide to go with a non-warranty-free waterproof phone, the waterproof rating will also have a little bit of a drop.
The iPhone 7 and the Nexus 5X have a rating from 10 to 14, while the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have a water rating of 11 to 14.
A watch that has water resistance will be more resistant to splashes than a phone without one.
If your phone breaks in half, you’ll be able to get a splashing repair done for free, since you won’t have to shell out for a replacement.
You won’t be able the same kind of warranty repair you might get from a traditional repair shop, so you’ll have to shop around to find a repair shop that’s willing to repair your phone for you.
Water resistant phone materials aren’t all the same, either.
You might not want to get an anti-water resistance coating on your waterproof phone because you’re more likely to accidentally break it in half in a rainstorm.
The same goes for the kind of waterproof coating you get on the case of a non-, waterproof-, or waterproof-free phone.
The anti-splash coating comes in two types: a polyurethane-based one that is water-resistant to up to 10 meters, and an antiabrasive one that’s a water barrier to up 1 meter.
Antiabrasives are not just good for the phone, but also for your eyes, so they’re also a good option if you get a cracked or scratched screen.
Anti-splashes and antiabrams are the most common types of phone water resistance, so there’s no one waterproof phone to use all the time.
If it’s too hard to tell which type of phone is water resistant, try using a waterproof, anti-abrasively phone in your pocket, purse, or laptop case.
It won’t take much damage to break a phone in two if it’s water resistant.
If, on the other hand, your phone is getting damaged in a rainy environment, consider purchasing a waterproof case, as this type of case can provide extra protection against water splashes.
It might be a little harder to find one that has antiabramatic coating, however.
