I have read that water resistant does not always equate to suitable for scuba, even when it is certified to 150m. I assume this watch is certified for diving since it is on a dive site. Is that correct?
Correct, unless the watch says DIVERS 100m, DIVERS 200m, or 200m water resistant, you should not use it for scuba diving.
Although It says it is water resistance to 150 M i wouldn't take it diving since it is not a certified diver. To be certified has to say Diver's 200 M or more like the Seiko's or Citizen's. But for the pool and snorkeling will be fine. Hope this helps.
Don't even get it wet washing the dishes, it will die. That's what happened to the one I had before I bought this one. I scrupulously avoid water while wearing it.
I purchased this for my husband for fathers day this year and we went to Grand Turk the end of June. We made several 110 foot dives and it worked great....he loves it!
