If water gets into your Apple Watch, it might appear like the screen is foggy. This is called condensation, and it happens when warm air hits a cold surface. You can remove the condensation by wiping your Watch and band with a nonabrasive, lint-free cloth.

If you think water might have gotten into your watch, follow these steps:
-Remove your watch band.
-Hold your watch underwarm running water for 10 to 15 seconds.
-Wipe your watch clean with a nonabrasive, lint-free cloth.
-Pat dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
-Dry your Watch band separately.
If you see water under the glass of your Watch face or in the Digital Crown, it means that water has gotten into the speaker port. To get rid of the water, flip your Watch over so that the face is down on a flat surface and wait for the water to be expelled through the speaker port.
