Old Dog; New Knowledge

Have you ever learned something new that rocked your world in the best way possible? That’s what happened to me this morning

It all came about because a couple of months ago I found an amazing water aerobics class populated by the smartest, sweetest, funniest, most beautiful women in Tallahassee. And they’ve let me into their queendom! They just didn’t know what a dolt I can be.

Every class session I work as hard as I can while having as much fun as I can, and I’d begun wishing I could keep track of my water workouts on my Apple Watch. But like a dutiful fool, prior to class I’d remove my watch and store it in my pool bag.

Then today, one of the lovely women in the group asked, “Why are you taking your watch off?”

“Because it’s not waterproof.”

“Is so.”

“Is not!”

It was an intensely mature conversation.

She then proceeded to show me how to activate this little water drop 💧 icon that keeps water from getting into the works and mucking everything up. At least that’s how it was explained to me. Technical AND mature.

Then when the workout’s over, one simply removes the watch and twists the knob on the side until an image of dissipating droplets fills the screen. Bye bye water! It’s just cool beyond belief.

So someone please tell me I’m not the only one who didn’t know about this feature. What’s that? Crickets?


Peace, people!

  1. Well I had no idea, but then I don’t own Apple products so… That is a nifty feature. Smart of Apple to incorporate it and lovely of your new friend to inform you about it!

    1. Oh, my rings hit numbers I didn’t think possible! You can access that water droplet a couple of ways. 1) by going to the Pool Swim feature of your workout section or 2) on the Home Screen of your watch—whatever click face you use—press the bottom of the face and push up to reveal other features, like find my phone and flashlight. If you scroll through the functions, you’ll come to the water droplet. Just press it and watch it appear at the top of the watch face.
