What does WR 10 bar mean on a watch?
W. R. 10 bar. W. R. 20 bar. Water-resistant to 10 or 20 atmospheres (Upgraded everyday use waterresistant watch) Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 10/20 atmospheres) means that the watch may be worn while skin diving, but not while scuba or saturated diving using helium gas.
Is swimming 10 ATM good?
Underwater atmospheric pressure is affected by all sorts of things. Whilst a watch may be 10ATM, it doesn’t mean that you can dive into 90m deep water. ATM varies underwater so a 10ATM watch is good for swimming, but we strongly recommend that you only dive in a proper diving watch.
