Brett’s iTip: I finally went swimming with my Apple Watch ON! So I’m sharing a couple of tips on the “Water Lock” feature of the Apple Watch (make sure it’s Series 2 or higher!!). You can manually turn on Water Lock from the Apple Watch Control Center or frankly the easiest way for me was to start a swimming workout and that automatically puts the Apple Watch in Water Lock mode.

While in Water Lock mode, you can’t tap the screen (something about the water interferes with this) but pressing and holding the side button will still dial emergency services where possible. And you can pause your swimming workout by pressing the Digital Crown and Side Button at the same time - and this is a good way to dry off first before you unlock the Apple Watch. To get out of Water Lock, do the oh-so-fun twisting of the Digital Crown to have the Apple Watch expel excess water with sounds and vibrations!

Jeff’s iTip: There is a “hidden” battery graph in the Apple Watch Battery Settings that allows you to see charging details. You must be running at least watchOS7 and just simply visit the Battery page in Settings.
The graph here is similar to the one that you can see on your iPhone
