Water-resistant and dust-resistant level definition and usage scenario description of wearable devices

Being water-resistant and dust-resistant means that the wearable device prevents water and dust from entering inside and damaging the interior components and the mainboard.

In the following test scenarios, the normal temperature ranges from 15°C to 35°C, the relative humidity ranges from 25% to 75%, and the atmospheric pressure ranges from 86 kPa to 106 kPa (the standard atmospheric pressure is 101.325 kPa).

Water Resistance Level

Resistance Level Definition

Resistance Scenario

Dive (Depth up to 100 metres)

Complies with the EN 13319 standard for diving accessories. Products that meet this standard can withstand 200 cycles of normal pressure (1 ATM) and excess pressure (11 ATM at most), and remain at excess pressure for one minute in each cycle.

The wearable device complies with the EN 13319 standard for diving accessories, and supports diving with a maximum depth of 100 metres. (For safety reasons, please do not dive alone.)

The wearable device is not suitable for use in the following scenarios:

1. Diving activities exceeding a depth of 100 metres.

2. Hot showers, hot springs, saunas (steam rooms), and other activities in high-temperature and high-humidity environments.

3. Platform dives, high-pressure rinsing, or other activities that involve high water pressure or fast-flowing water.

(Damage to the wearable device caused by immersion in liquid is not covered by the warranty if the wearable device is used in an unsuitable scenario.)

Dive (Depth up to 30 metres)

Complies with the EN 13319 standard for diving accessories. Products that meet this standard can withstand 200 cycles of normal pressure (1 ATM) and excess pressure (3.3 ATM at most), and remain at excess pressure for one minute in each cycle.

The wearable device complies with the EN 13319 standard for diving accessories, and supports free diving with a maximum depth of 30 metres. (For safety reasons, please do not dive alone.)

The wearable device is not suitable for use in the following scenarios:

1. Scuba dives and technical dives.

2. Diving activities exceeding a depth of 30 metres.

3. Hot showers, hot springs, saunas (steam rooms), and other activities in high-temperature and high-humidity environments.

4. Platform dives, high-pressure rinsing, or other activities that involve high water pressure or fast-flowing water.

(Damage to the wearable device caused by immersion in liquid is not covered by the warranty if the wearable device is used in an unsuitable scenario.)

10 ATM

It is a water-resistant standard (ISO 22810) defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). It indicates that the wearable device can stand up to simulated 100-metre static water pressure at room temperature for 10 minutes.

The wearable device complies with the 10 ATM-rated resistance level under the ISO 22810:2010 standard, which indicates that it can withstand up to 100-metre static water pressure for 10 minutes. Water resistance is not permanent, and the performance may deteriorate with daily wear and tear.

The wearable device can be used for water activities such as those in swimming pools and at the beach, and diving (the supported depth and diving types vary depending on the specific product model). It can be worn and used during exercise, on rainy days, and when washing your hands.

If a watch with a speaker is soaked in water or the watch is worn in water, promptly remove water stains from the speaker or use the drainage feature of the watch to avoid the impact of the water stains on the speaker.

The wearable device is not suitable for use in the following scenarios:

1. Platform dives, high-pressure rinsing, or other activities that involve high water pressure or fast-flowing water.

2. Hot showers, hot springs, saunas (steam rooms), and other activities in high-temperature and high-humidity environments.

3. Leather and metal straps are not designed to withstand water or sweat. It is recommended that you wear other types of straps, if you wish to swim, dive, or work out.

(Damage to the wearable device caused by immersion in liquid is not covered by the warranty if the wearable device is used in an unsuitable scenario.)

5 ATM

It is a water-resistant standard (ISO22810) defined by the ISO. It indicates that the wearable device can stand up to simulated 50-metre static water pressure at room temperature for 10 minutes, and does not mean that the watch is water-resistant in water that is 50 metres deep. Wearable devices with a resistance level of 5 ATM are water-resistant when you are swimming. You can wear this type of wearable device when swimming or taking part in other water-related activities in your daily life.

Dust-resistant level: If wearable devices comply with the IEC 60529:2013 standard (level 6), it means that no dust can get inside.

These wearable devices comply with the 5 ATM-rated resistance level under the ISO 22810:2010 standard, which indicates that they can withstand up to 50-metre static water pressure for 10 minutes, but does not actually mean that they are water-resistant in water that is 50-metre deep. Water resistance is not permanent, and the performance may deteriorate with daily wear and tear.

Wearable devices can prevent dust from living rooms, offices, laboratories, light industrial studios, and storage rooms from entering. They are not suitable in particularly dusty environments.

It can be used in shallow waters such as in swimming pools and at the beach, and can be worn and used during exercise, on rainy days, and when washing your hands.

If a watch with a speaker is soaked in water or the watch is worn in water, promptly remove water stains from the speaker or use the drainage feature of the watch to avoid the impact of the water stains on the speaker.

The wearable device is not suitable for use in the following scenarios:

1. Dives, scuba dives, platform dives, high-pressure rinsing, or other activities that involve high water pressure or fast-flowing water.

2. Hot showers, hot springs, saunas (steam rooms), and other activities in high-temperature and high-humidity environments.

3. Leather and metal straps are not designed to withstand swimming or sweat. It is recommended that you wear other types of straps, in such scenarios.

(Damage to the wearable device caused by immersion in liquid is not covered by the warranty if the wearable device is used in an unsuitable scenario.)

IPX8

IPX8 water resistance rating is defined in GB/T standard 4208: 2017. It indicates that the wearable device can stand up to simulated 20-metre static water pressure, and does not mean that the wearable device is water-resistant in water that is 20 metres deep.

The wearable device can be used for water activities in shallow waters such as in swimming pools or along the coast. It is not applicable to diving, hot showers, hot springs, saunas, and other water or deep water activities with high-speed water flows.
