Galaxy Watch 4 Classic Swimming.

Has anyone tried swimming in their watch? I swim a couple of times a week and want to use it, but I am scared it will drown! It's a lot of money to risk it!

I usually do breaststroke, so while watch is always in water, it isn't very deep. Seems a bit of a grey area. 
Thanks in advance.

@Saxy: The Galaxy watch 4 is designed for regular use in normal swimming conditions, so you'll be fine to use it at your local pool. The manual does advise against diving into the pool while wearing the watch, due to the sudden change in water pressure. You should also rinse it with fresh water and dry it with a clean, soft cloth or towel following your swim.

I used the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic 46 mm for swimming without problems.

I even used it in a chlorinated water pool on 2 occasions (alongside a 2nd hand Galaxy Watch ("1")...). No problems, but I took care to rinse it in fresh water after swimming.
