    The band is NOT waterproof. A few splashes while washing hands OK. Shower - NO

    A shower would be ill-advised because of the soap and the possibility of the Band being exposed to the force of the water stream from the shower head. I wouldn't worry about rain, but a shower is pushing your luck.

    I've been riding my bike trough quite some rainstorms (love the dutch weather) and it is still working. But yeah, shower might be a different thing with the force of the water and soap as well.

    IP64 rated (not recommended to expose directly to water, light splashing is OK)

    Definitely not waterproof and not even water resistant. Rumors suggest Band 3 will be at least resistant

    I like to think of it as 'lightly resistant' to water. I wash my hands and sometimes splash it a bit, I sweat when working out, etc, and it doesn't see to hurt it. Sometimes it gets rained on. But I wouldn't submerge it, I wouldn't shower with it on.
