Is Amazfit Verge Lite waterproof?
Amazfit Verge Lite is water-resistant but not waterproof. It is IP 68 certified which means resistant to dust, rain, splashing, and accidental submersion. It shouldn’t be used when you are taking a shower/bath, having a spa, swimming or in the sauna or steam room. Specifically, the IP rating is a number that indicates what level of protection it has against both solids and liquids.
6 – The first digit stands for its resistance to dust, but also general dirt and sand.
8 – The second digit provides certification for water resistance.
Amazfit Verge Lite shouldn’t be used when you are swimming, taking a shower/bath, having a spa or in the sauna/steam room.
When you move your arm to begin swimming, water pressure can change quickly. It would be much higher than the static pressure at the depth of 1.5 meters and it’s possible water could force its way into the device.
When you are taking a shower/bath, rapid changes in temperature may cause expansion and contraction damaging the watch and its water-resistance rating. Shampoo, soaps and other liquids are highly corrosive to the wristband and the casing of the watch.
