In terms of water resistancy for kayaking/pool: I do a lot of high level whitewater and Sea Kayaking. Works Great, even after changing the battery. I'm also a swimming instructor and spend about 4 hours a day in the water, since my 'city' watch died I've been wearing this in the water a lot and it holds up well. Very good watch.
