or WATERPROOF A watch whose case (s.) is designed in such a way as to resist infiltration by water (3 atmospheres, corresponding to a conventional depth of 30 meters; 5 atmospheres, corresponding to a conventional depth of 50 meters.)
Refers to a unit's ability to resist water. Water resistant devices can get wet, but should not be submerged.
See Water Repellant.
A face that has had some treatment to make it resistant to the damage or deterioration caused by water. A face that is water repellent.
Describing a face that has been treated to make it resistant to the damage or deterioration caused by water.
The surface of the fabric is sprayed with a water-repellent substance. This substance renders the fabric non-absorbent and allows the rain to bead up and slide off the garment.
Application and Use Property of a bond to withstand prolonged contact with water whilst retaining adequate bond strength and other properties necessary forits intended purpose.
Will not be ruined by water up to a measured depth or level of pressure. Not waterproof. If you'll be wearing a watch swimming, look for water resistance of more than 165 feet per 50 meters.
The ability to withstand water pressure to avoid water from entering a watch. The type of tests varies depending on the depth of water resistance required, e.g., bathing, snorkeling and scuba diving.
Able to withstand splashes of water from rain or a shower. Higher degrees of resistance indicated by phrases such as â€œwater resistantâ€ to 100 meters.
Refer to the term waterfastness. Water resistant and waterfastness have very similar characteristics.
a treatment to fabric that actually allows water to "bead" and fall off a garment.
Made to prevent water from entering. Water-resistant case, watch-case whose joints are made to prevent moisture from entering.
Any substance that resists the passing or joining of water or water vapor (for example, caulking materials that are used to seal cracks around windows, or silicone-type treatments of brick surfaces and joints).
The ability to resist penetration by water, not the rigorous as waterproof.
Repelling moisture or water; not readily removed by water.
A water resistant GPS receiver can be used in a damp environment, however, the unit was not designed for complete submersion in water. An IPX7 designation means the GPS case can withstand accidental immersion in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes.
The ability to withstand splashes of water. Terms such as "water resistant to 50 meters" or "water resistant to 200 meters" indicate that the watch can be worn underwater to various depths.
A watch bearing the inscription "water-resistant" on its case back can handle light moisture, such as a rainstorm or sink splashes, but should not be worn swimming or diving. If the watch can be submerged in water, it must state at what depth it maintains water-resistance, i.e. 50 meters (165 feet) or more on most sport watches. Below 200 meters, the watch may be used for skin diving and even scuba diving depending upon the indicated depths.
Will withstand splashes of water or rain but should not be worn while swimming or diving.
