Is my Spacetalk water resistant?

Learn more about water resistance levels of your device and what they mean in the real world, especially for children.  

Kids

Your Spacetalk Kids watch is splashproof only.

We advise against using this device during any activity where it risks being submerged in water or exposed to high-pressure water spray.

With an IP54 rating, your Spacetalk Kids will survive light water splashes. But if your device gets wet, we recommend wiping it down immediately with a dry cloth.

Adventurer

Your Spacetalk Adventurer watch has our highest level of water resistance (IP67), but it’s not waterproof.

It’s designed to stay protected if submerged in water up to 1 metre deep and for up to 30 minutes.

This means you can wear your watch in the rain or occasionally in the shower, but we don’t recommend swimming, diving or bathing with it.

Life

Your Spacetalk Life watch has our highest level of water resistance (IP67), but it’s not waterproof.

It’s designed to stay protected if submerged in water up to 1 metre deep and for up to 30 minutes.

This means you can wear your watch in the rain or occasionally in the shower, but we don’t recommend swimming, diving or bathing with it.

Things to avoid

Please note, water resistance of your device may diminish over time with normal use. The water seals in your watch may degrade due to:

  • Exposure to soap or soapy water

Exposure to detergents, insect repellent, lotions and sunscreen

  • Exposure to high-velocity water like water skiing, hose jets or pressurised water guns
  • Exposure to salt water or chlorine
  • Dropping your device
  • Excessive wear and tear

How devices are tested

To earn IP certification levels, our devices are tested in special labs to meet strict water resistance requirements. These tests are performed in highly controlled laboratory conditions using static and pure water. In everyday usage, your device may encounter water that is not static and purified, but contains various minerals, chemicals, salt and other elements that can affect water resistance performance over time.

Please note that the certified splash, dust and water resistance levels of any device are not permanent conditions and may decrease over time.
