If you're someone who enjoys the benefits of a sauna or steam bath, you may be tempted to wear your smartwatch while you sweat it out. However, doing so can damage your device and potentially even void its warranty.
One of the main reasons you shouldn't wear your smartwatch in the sauna or steam bath is because of the high temperatures. These environments can reach temperatures of up to 150°F or more, which can cause the battery and other components of your smartwatch to malfunction or fail. Additionally, the humidity in the air can cause condensation to form on the device and lead to water damage.
Another reason to avoid wearing your smartwatch in the sauna or steam bath is that the heat can warp or damage the materials of the device. For example, the heat may cause the straps of your smartwatch to stretch or the metal parts to become discolored.
We specifically warn against exposing our devices to high temperatures and humidity, and doing so may void the warranty on your device.
In short, it's best to leave your smartwatch at home or in a locker when you head to the sauna or steam bath. Not only will this help protect your device from damage, but it will also allow you to fully relax and enjoy your time in the sauna without any distractions.
