You buy a case to make it more so, but if you read the various group discussions there are numerous examples of folk who like me forget they have it on, 1st in the shower, then swimming, windsurfing, kiting, sailing etc and it is still going strong, the term 'resistant' correct me if I'm wrong means down to a depth of 3 mtrs which more than covers what I get up to.

gen 1 apple watch is IPX7 water resistant, i.e. 1 metre for 30 mins but they do say the water resistance will deteriorate with age/use!!!!!

the second gen is rather better and apple say "Apple Watch Series 2 has a water resistance rating of 50 meters under ISO standard 22810:2010."

I use a Suunto Ambit - its waterproof durable and ideal for sailing (and it shows speed while sailing - here's a confusing track from yesterday's Frostbite at Alton Water) I like the link into Strava for cycling and running when on dry land too.
