In fact, the dustproof and waterproof grade of electronic products is generally expressed by IP. According to the waterproof technology and manufacturing process, the products of Hengmei Technology can basically reach the level of IP67 and IP68 waterproof. After factory testing, the products show waterproof performance in a specific environment, which can play a protective role in a short immersion.

What is IPXX Waterproof

IP68 is the highest level of dustproof and waterproof grade standard. How to evaluate the shell solid and waterproof performance, mainly to see IPXX after the two digits XX.

The first X is the dustproof level, from 0 to 6, with the highest level being 6.

The second X is a waterproof rating, ranging from 0 to 8, with the highest rating being 8.

IPX0 unprotected

IPX1 water drops into the housing without effect

IPX2 has no effect when the housing is tilted to 15 degrees

IPX3 water or rain drops from 60 degrees have no effect

IPX4 liquid in any direction to the shell has no effect

IPX5 can be rinsed with water without any harm

IPX6 can be used in the cabin, big waves environment

IPX7 can stay in water up to one meter deep for up to 30 minutes

IPX8 can stay in water up to 2 meters deep for up to 30 minutes

This is a product of our company, product name: H68. After the test by our engineers and testers, the use of the watch has not been affected by soaking in water one night. Waterproof ability on the lever.

Why is it not recommended for hot showers

In the case of a bath, you need to take a hot bath or a cold bath.

Generally, it is difficult for electronic products with waterproof function to enter water when taking a cold shower. However, due to the strong permeability of water vapor molecules in a hot bath, water vapor generated by hot shower, sauna and hot spring is easy to enter the inner part of the bracelet, which will cause the function of the bracelet to be unable to be used in serious cases.

Waterproof and vapour proof are two different concepts.

General equipment is unable to protect water vapor into, such as generally advertised 30 meters diving waterproof watch in a hot bath still have the possibility of water vapor. It is also necessary to pay attention to swimming, if diving and other operations will still have the risk of water, and if swimming in the sea, because of the corrosive sea water is easy to cause the corrosion of charging contacts, sealing rubber ring and other rapid aging, and the waterproof function of the equipment is not permanent, may be weakened as time goes by. No matter how waterproof the smart bracelet is, it should not be used underwater for too long. The smart bracelet is always an intelligent electronic product. No matter how high the waterproof grade of the smart bracelet is, if you use it underwater all the time, there will be a moment of water accidentally. Therefore, daily hand washing, cold shower, rainy day, sweating can be worn, it is not recommended to wear hot bath or contact with water for a long time, in order to extend the service life of smart wearable products. In addition, the equipment falls, bumps or suffers other impacts, contact with soap water, shower gel, detergent, perfume, lotion, oil will also affect the water resistance of the bracelet.
