I wish new Apple watch is water resistant to 30m or better. Will it be?

Apple and water damage

Apple has a history of using a water detector material that is extremely sensitive to water vapor and using it as an excuse to jack up the cost of a repair. I had a similar experience with an iphone 4 that I knew had not gotten wet and it showed as positive. I think they have settled several lawsuits over this the last couple of years

"How did you manage to post a link??!! I thought they were temporarily disabled... I just tried & couldn't!!"

I'm not sure, but maybe only posters with certain ranks - like "Blogger" - are allowed to post links. Hopefully that won't be a permanent fix to address the spam issues!

@Rich.Pell: regarding your comment below:

Water damage is apparently a very common problem with mobile phones.  See the following related article at EDN:

@prabhakar: Very sorry to hear that! :( Paying a high premium for a phone for just the great "user experience" alone makes us to repent when it also fails in rain like other cheaper phones. The even more pathetic part is the service/support here in India for iPhone...

@Zeeglen,

 

We were told that the warranty is void because  water has seeped into the mobile.

And that is what I am wondering about this Marvellously Engineered product. becuase my daughter had carried this phone in her prouser pocket .

@_hm... "But vowed against Apple for life time may be highly streesful. It will be very difficult and no need for that."

Apple would be wise to bear in mind the well known maxim:  It takes 10 times more effort to win back a dissatisfied customer than to keep an existing customer happy.

@Prabhakar: Our full sympathy with your daughter for missing her iPhone 5S.

But vowed against Apple for life time may be highly streesful. It will be very difficult and no need for that.

In the hindsight, it could have happened with Android or any other device. Do you thing they can repair it? Probably not.

@ Prabhakar My daughter boiught a brand new Apple Iphone 5S just a couple of months ago  ... declared that it was unrepairable and the only option was to buy another phone for half the price

No 90 day warranty?
