All PV watches have a water resistance of 5 ATM. 5 ATM means that a watch can withstand a pressure of 5 bar or a water column of 50 meters. In practice, this corresponds to the pressure of a flowing water jet when washing hands.
Using the attached table, you can determine how much water load your watch can withstand (orange colored is norm for all PV watches):
|water depth||rain, splashes||showering||bathing||
swim / snorkeling
|diving without equipment||diving with equipment|
|30 meter = 3 bar||Yes||No||No||No||No||No|
|50 meter = 5 bar||Yes||No||No||No||No||No|
|100 meter = 10 bar||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||No||No|
|200 meter = 20 bar||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||
