Seconds from disaster.
Got home this evening to the sound of our salt water chlorination alam beeping.

Open the pool gate and lifted the hatch on the swimmer box to find a tennis ball lodged in the intake.

Went to thrust my left hand into water to wrench it out and pulled up Millimiters from my brand new X5 plus plunging into the water elbow deep.

Holy crap. Almost had a heart attack as I flung my arm into the air and danced around on the spot checking for water.

Neighbours must of thaught I was a write twat.

Anyway all good now , gave myself an upper cut, and thought I might share my near miss with other like minded smart watch enthusiasts .

FINOW , please make it water proof some time in the future.:grinning:

I understand. But - with microphone and speaker openings - it will be difficult to make these watches any more than splash proof without raising the cost of the product by a very considerable amount…

All good Pablo,
I need to be more careful. I am a diver and have worne dive watches that have a similar look and feel of the X5 for the last 30+ years.

Would be nice to be water proof , but I totally understand why they are not .

X5 has lived up to everything I expected it to be, even the limited teather to IOS meets all my needs.
