> > I used to wear a digital watch because it is just a teeny bit easier to tell time with, but I always got tricked by that "Water-resistant to 50m" they'd put on there, and I'd wear it in to a pool and ruin it.

"Water-resistant" on a watch is usually an outright lie. This is the way it really works:

"Splashproof" means you can get raindrops on it and it won't matter.

"Water-resistant" means you can drop it in the water and if you grab it out quickly and dry it, it *probably* won't matter. I have no idea why they put "to 50 metres" in there, because anything that's only water-resistant is going to DIE if you take it scuba diving.

"Waterproof" means waterproof.
