I love snorkeling and just started scuba diving, but I only go a few times a year. It’s fun to know how far you’re going down when snorkeling (most scuba apparatuses should show you), but I don’t want to buy a diving watch. I don’t see the point in spending a lot of money on a watch that you only use a couple of weeks a year.
My Apple Watch Series 7 is water resistant and can reach depths of 50 meters. That is plenty deep and snorkelers don’t go anywhere near that depth. I enjoyed seeing how deep I could go before the pressure started bothering my head. It wasn’t that deep. I used DiveWatch – Dive Tracker for Apple Watch. It was perfect for what I needed.

Our trip schedule was flexible, but it was still important to have some idea about what time it was. While on our vacation in the British Virgin Islands, we had a general idea of when to make it back to the boat. It was helpful to have a waterproof watch while snorkeling and while hanging out on the beach.

If you’re looking for a smartwatch to take to the beach and for water sports, an Apple Watch is a good watch to go with. Invest in a stronger watch band though than the one that comes with the watch.
