Will the Apple Watch be waterproof?

It appears that the forthcoming Apple Watch will work fine in the shower – judging by comments from CEO Tim Cook.

According to 9to5Mac, Cook told a Berlin Apple Store employee that he wears his watch all the time – “even in the shower”. As 9T5M notes, whilst water resistance has been mooted before, it is interesting to hear confirmation that the watch will be able to take a little more than just light rain.

Full water resistance isn’t outside of the realms of possibility: the watch itself uses induction charging meaning that it should be fully possible to seal up the device to prevent water getting in. We’re looking forward to the YouTube testing videos already.
