Can I swim with a 5 ATM watch?

Can I swim with a 5 ATM watch?

5 BAR / 5 ATM / 50m / 165ft: Your watch can withstand splashes, shower and is suitable for swimming. It is not suitable for water sports, pool-side diving or sea diving.

How far underwater is 10 ATM?

10 ATM corresponds to approximately 10 bar, which is approximately the pressure that prevails at a depth of 100 meters. This is where the term “100 meters waterproof” comes from.

What does waterproof up to 5 ATM mean?

5 ATM means that a watch can withstand a pressure of 5 bar or a water column of 50 meters. In practice, this corresponds to the pressure of a flowing water jet when washing hands, showering or bathing.

What does waterproof up to 5 atm mean?

Is 5 ATM dust resistant?

Devices with a resistance level of 5ATM are water-resistant when you are swimming. You can wear this type of device when swimming or taking part in other water-related activities in your daily life. Dust-resistant level: If devices comply with the IEC 60529-2013 standard (level 6), it means that no dust can get inside.

Can I swim with a 3 ATM watch?

3 ATM = limited waterproof, splash-proof: The watch is protected from splashes such as rain, must not be immersed in water, and must not be used in swimming or sauna. 5 ATM = limited waterproof: The watch can be used in humid conditions, eg in surface water. In principle, you can swim, but it is not recommended.

What is 5ATM in feet?

The ATM or “atmospheres” is the amount of pressure a watch can withstand. 5ATM will withstand pressures equivalent to about 50 meters, or 164 ft under water. It is important to note that this is a measure of pressure NOT depth.

Is 3ATM waterproof?

3ATM is splash resistant. Ok for wearing in the rain, hand washing, other occasional contact with water. Most Grace & Co fashion watches are 3ATM. 5ATM is suitable for swimming, fishing, other outdoor activities.

How deep can a 10 bar watch go?

328 feet
100 meters/ 328 feet/ 10 bar: are often called divers watches and can be used for snorkeling, swimming, and other water sports, but not high board diving or sub aqua diving.

How waterproof is 3atm?

The water protection of the watch can be expressed with a rating system called atmospheric pressure (ATM) or an equivalent depth meter reading. For example, the reading “3 ATM” corresponds to water protection up to a depth of 30 meters.

Is 5ATM waterproof better than IP68?

Clearly a water resistance of 5ATM is going to be better than IP68. Even though, in the case of IP68, you may not know how much further than a meter the watch is resistant, more than likely it won’t be too much. And it most probably won’t exceed 50 meters!

Can I swim with a 1 ATM watch?

This is why a watch (or device) with a 1 ATM rating offers no submersion protection or general water resistance. Simply putting a watch under the surface of a body of water immediately exposes it to a slight increase in pressure and for many watches that is more than enough to allow water to enter.

Is 3atm enough for swimming?

Is swimming 10 ATM good?

10ATM is suitable for snorkelling and swimming but not for scuba diving.

How deep is 5 atm of water?

Using another route to check answer, 5 ATM is 505,000 Pascals. ~249 Pa is 1 inch of water column, then 39.37 inch/meter… 51.5 meters deep

How many ATM are there in a dive?

If you now dive into the water, then for every 10 meters of diving depth, there is also about 1 ATM or 1 bar hydrostatic water pressure in addition to the atmospheric air pressure of 1 ATM or 1 bar. At a water depth of 50 meters, a watch is then exposed to an overpressure of 5 ATM or 5 bar. What does 5 ATM mean?

What is the water resistance of a 5 ATM Watch?

This is why a watch with 5atm water resistance has a water resistance of 50 meters. Because 5×10 is 50. The same would apply to a watch that has a water resistance of 3atm. That would be 30 meters, because 3×10 is 30. And a watch that is has a 10atm water resistance, would be water resistant 100 meters, and so on, and so on.

How deep can a 5ATM watch go?

Simply put, a watch that is 5atm water resistant, can withstand the equivalent to a depth of 50 meters, or 164 feet underwater. But there is much more to this story! Read on to find out more! We previously did an article on the Wr20bar, which explains that 1 bar is equal to a depth of 33 feet underwater.
