True! I've never tried mine in the pool, but I previously had a Nike Imara, and the display was ruined pretty much instantly on contact with water. Like, condensation inside because I washed my hands while wearing it, and then completely ruined in the pool. And it's supposed to work underwater. I mean, maybe it was still monitoring my heart rate, but that is not all that helpful if I can't read the display!
