How to Use Water Lock on Apple Watch Series 3 or Series 2 in watchOS 4

You shouldn't fail to use Water Lock on Apple Watch running watchOS 4 to ensure your smartwatch has additional protection during your great water-based workout.

You can use Water Lock on Apple Watch running watchOS 4 during your fun-loving watersport to offer an additional shield to the smartwatch. When this new feature is enabled, it completely locks the screen of your device to prevent water from entering speaker holes or microphone. Once you have finished your swimming, you can quickly turn off the Water Lock feature.

One important thing worth mentioning is that this new watchOS 4 feature is available only on the Apple Watch Series 2 and 3. Let me show you how it functions.
