Miraculous Return of Lost Apple Watch After Hours at Sea Thanks to Find My
Earlier this month, we shared the story of a student who recovered his iPhone days after dropping it into a river. Now, an even more remarkable tale has emerged: that of an Apple Watch surviving hours at sea and being returned to its rightful owner thanks to Find My.
The incident occurred when Rohan Gupta was out on a boat with friends in the ocean off the coast of India. He had been wearing his Apple Watch but eventually noticed that it had gone missing – presumably fallen overboard without him noticing. With no hope for recovery, he assumed all was lost until two weeks later when he received an email from Apple saying they’d located his watch using Find My!
Incredibly, against all odds and despite spending countless hours underwater in saltwater conditions far harsher than those recommended by Apple’s guidelines for use near water, Gupta’s watch had survived intact – albeit with some minor scratches on its casing from its ordeal at sea! After drying off any residual moisture inside and outside the device (and replacing the band), Gupta is now happily reunited with his trusty wearable companion once again – thanks to Find My’s incredible technology!Read more at 9to5Mac
