Apple Watch 8 could rival Casio G-Shocks with new waterproofing technology

Apple quietly published a patent for the new waterproofing technology in April of this year, which now makes sense given watchOS9’s advanced fitness metrics and multisport capabilities.

The patent, which we covered at the time it was published, shows a ‘smart water detector’ that uses a thin membrane to detect whether water has entered the device. This system would be more accurate than Apple’s current water resistance technology, allowing it to turn off or run water ejection programs automatically.
