@Maverickbrfc95  Water resistant isn't the same as waterproof. Follow @MI5's advice above, but don't get your hopes too high.

i gotta say surpised by this ,i thought XS had IP68 which says 1.5m for 30mins in water, so dropping in the bath shouldnt really affect it, unless it hit the bath on the way in?
