Apple has announced the media event for its upcoming wearable, the Apple Watch on March 9. Invites have been sent and the night will reveal many new info and specs of the watch. One thing that every Apple fan is pondering about is “if the watch will be waterproof” after it starts shipping in April.
No doubt CEO Tim Cook has cleverly talked about the watch and showed-off many cool features. For example, Apple Watch will help you get rid of your car keys and so on, but Tim Cook has yet to say anything about the watch being waterproof.
EPIK Apple Watch Waterproof Case from Lunatik
During September’s unveiling, Apple revealed much about its upcoming smartwatch endeavor, and now the company’s head honcho Tim Cook has shed some more light on this matter during a recent trip to Germany.As per reports, Cook told an employee at a Berlin-based Apple Store that he wears his personal Apple Watch all the time. “Even in the shower,” he continued.

Cook also mentioned that he takes off the watch only to charge at night. This undoubtedly gives us some hope, but not to say, there’s a big difference in being waterproof and being splashproof. Apple had previously noted that the device would offer a degree of water resistance, but it remained unclear as to what kinds of terrain it would be able to endure.
In the initial demo clip we could see sweaty runners interacting with Apple Watch, so this means the device is waterproof up to some extent. But again, there’s no clear info if one can use it while swimming or bathing. That’s all said, there’s one company which has already made a waterproof case for the Apple Watch. Yes really!
Lunatik, an accessory maker company has announced the EPIK Apple Watch Kit which it says will make your new Apple Watch waterproof. They claim that with this case you can even go swimming with the Apple Watch on your wrist. So right now we have only Lunatik to our rescue.
The company has not revealed any release data or shipping details about the case, but it will do that before the Apple watch starts shipping. Like us, probably, the company is also waiting for Apple to reveal the exact specifications, to see if there’s a certain word about the watch being waterproof (or not).
As far as our expectations are concerned, Apple will make the watch waterproof. If not, will anyone with a multi-grand gold Apple Watch want to put it into a plastic case? What do you think? Shout off in the comments.
