    Thanks for your feedback.

    The Nike+ SportBand is water resistant but not waterproof. The SportBand is water resistant up to 5 ATM (Atmospheres).

    You can wear the SportBand in the rain or for general everyday use, such as showering or washing dishes. Swimming with the SportBand is not recommended.

    Here are a few additional SportBand guidelines and reminders:

    • Water damage can occur if the buttons are pressed underwater

    • Do not wear the SportBand in steaming shower, spa, or hot tub because hot steam may cause damage

    • Rinse the SportBand thoroughly in fresh water after being exposed to salt water

    • Make sure the USB leads are dry before plugging the Link into your USB port
