Are you tired of unintentionally triggering your Apple Watch while swimming or washing your hands?
Learn how to turn off Water Lock on your Apple Watch 7 and prevent any unwanted taps on the display with just a few simple steps.
How to Turn Off Water Lock on Apple Watch 7
One of the features of the Apple Watch 7 is Water Lock mode, which is designed to prevent unintended taps on the display when the user is wearing the watch in water.
To turn off Water Lock mode and eject water, the user can press and hold the Digital Crown on the side of the Apple Watch until the display says “Unlocked.” If the user has an Apple Watch with watchOS 8 or earlier, they can rotate the Digital Crown instead of pressing it to turn off Water Lock mode.
To turn on Water Lock mode, the user can touch and hold the bottom of the display when the watch face or an app is visible, wait for Control Center to show, and then swipe up. From there, the user can tap the Water Lock button, and the Water Lock icon will appear at the top of the watch face.
Additionally, Water Lock mode turns on automatically when the user begins a water-based workout, such as swimming, surfing, or scuba diving with an Apple Watch Ultra.
When Water Lock mode is enabled, the Apple Watch 7’s display will not respond to touch, which helps avoid unintended input while the user is in the water. Once the user disables Water Lock mode, the watch will eject any water remaining in the speaker by playing a series of tones.
In summary, Water Lock mode is a useful feature for Apple Watch 7 users who plan on wearing their watch in water. By enabling Water Lock mode, users can prevent unintended taps on the display, and the watch will eject any remaining water once the user turns off the mode. The user can turn on Water Lock mode by following a few simple steps, including tapping the Water Lock button in Control Center, and the mode will also activate automatically during certain water-based workouts.
