Going for a swim? Your smart watch is always ready for a dip. Just make sure you turn on Water lock mode to prevent accidental touches on your screen. It will also prevent you from accidentally activating your watch with a wake-up gesture while you're swimming.

 

Note: Water Lock mode is available on Galaxy Fit, Galaxy Watch, the Galaxy Watch Active series, Gear Fit2 Pro, and Gear Sport. Whenever your watch gets wet, lightly shake it to remove any water before using it.
