    Hi, I know this is probably asked too many times but there is no FAQ and it is not on the web. Do watch batteries freeze out in the arctic and cause the watch to stop? Can a watch be worn in jungle environments or in a U2 spy plane? What about in the shower if your watch is water proof to whatever?

    Thank you.

    Can't tell you abut low temperatures (artic etc.) but can say I've worn battery powered watches in temperatures exceeding 40 deg C in both dry and humid conditions and never had any trouble. After all, watch batteries are freely available in even the tiniest villages in many very hot countries - they wouldn't be if they didn't work.

    And although I usually take off my watch before a shower, I have on occasion forgotten and had no trouble.
