    200 meters might seem like a long way down, but a 200m watch shouldn't be taken on diving expeditions. You can, however, swim or snorkel with it. Water-resistant to 300m or 30 Bar/Atmospheres. You should be able to take this watch diving, although it is not certified to the standard of an ISO 6425 (diver's watch).11 Sept 2019

    Seems strange to me... why would a watch be rated (even certified?) to 200m pressure, but apparently you cannot use it! It should be rated to what you can use.

    If you went diving you should know this,anyhow if you want to dive perfect for the job or if you just want a watch that is waterproof for your needs perfect or a watch to pose in perfect it is a sales thread after all, recreational Driving the max speed limit is 70mph just to say

    Water resistance classification
    Watches are classified by their degree of water resistance, which roughly translates to the following (1 meter ≈ 3.28 feet):[35]

    Water resistance rating Suitability Remarks
    Water Resistant or 50 m Suitable for swimming, no snorkeling water related work, and fishing. NOT suitable for diving.
    Water Resistant 100 m Suitable for recreational surfing, swimming, snorkeling, sailing and water sports. NOT suitable for diving.
    Water Resistant 200 m Suitable for professional marine activity and serious surface water sports. Suitable for skin diving only. NOT suitable for scuba diving.
    Diver's 100 m Minimum ISO standard (ISO 6425) for scuba diving at depths NOT suitable for saturation diving. Diver's 100 m and 150 m watches are generally old(er) watches.
    Diver's 200 m or 300 m Suitable for scuba diving at depths NOT suitable for saturation diving. Typical ratings for contemporary diver's watches.
    Diver's 300+ m for mixed-gas diving Suitable for saturation diving (helium enriched environment). Watches designed for mixed-gas diving will have the DIVER’S WATCH xxx M FOR MIXED-GAS DIVING additional marking to point this out.
    Note: The depth specified on the watch dial or case represents the results of tests done in the lab, not in the ocean.[34]

    Some watches are rated in bars instead of meters. Since 1 bar is approximately the pressure exerted by 10 m of water, a rating in bars may be multiplied by 10 to be approximately equal to that based on meters. Therefore, a 20 bar watch is equivalent to a 200-meter watch. Some watches are rated in atmospheres (atm), which are about 1% greater than bars. In the United Kingdom, scuba divers and others often use the word atmosphere interchangeably with bar (1 atm = 1.01325 bar, or 101,325 Pa).
