* IP67 is short for 'Ingress Protection,' which is an IP number used to specify the environmental protection of enclosures around electronic equipment. These ratings are determined by specific tests. The IP number is composed of two numbers, the first referring to the protection against solid objects and the second against liquids. The higher the number, the better the protection. The number ‘6’ the G Watch obtained, is to certify the device is ‘totally protected against dust,’ while the number ‘7’ means it is protected from water submersion of 15cm and 1m for 30-minutes.
