ION water resistance
Bob Lansdorp Staff member
A common question we have been getting: "is ION waterproof?"
We have not yet completed IP rating testing and so we cannot claim any water resistance. However, we have designed the ION™ Cartridges to fit into the ION™ Wristband with a water resistant seal, as you can see in the photo below. The black ring is an o-ring designed to seal into the wristband and prevent water from entering the wristband and damaging the Printed Circuit Board (PCB):
For now we recommend that you remove your wristband if you're going swimming or doing other water activities since we have not yet tested the seals in real-world conditions, but we hope to be able to provide you with detailed water-resistance testing data in the future.
