    Yes. Apple Watch Series 1 is rated IPX7, meaning it can be immersed in up to 1 metre of water for 30 minutes, but it is recommended you treat it as 'splash proof' and 'rain proof'.

    Apple Watch Series 2 is waterproof up to 50m, and is designed for swimming. You can wash your hands with either.

  • Yes you can the series 1 is water resistant-meant for everday useage. The series 2 is waterproof so you can wash your hands

  • Yes, I have had the series 1 watch since it was released, with sports band, and never take it off to wash my hands. It has been fine.
