Watch water resistance? Answered
I recently got a new watch for my 18th birthday. On the back of it, it said "5 ATM". I looked it up, and supposedly it should be water resistant to 50 meters or 165 feet.
However, all places I went to online said to only have it around sinks, "slight splashes", shallow water, and to not use it for snorkeling.
I live near the ocean and would most likely use it for that; not for any real diving though.
Shouldn't a 50 meter tested watch be able to handle a few feet of water, or is it because it's saltwater that it would not be able to?
