Buy a Water-Resistant Watch Band
There are a few ways to protect your watch from harsh elements like rain. You can keep it in a protective case when you’re not wearing it, or you can give it a quick wipe-down with a dry cloth if it gets wet.
Another option is to purchase a water-resistant watch band, which will help keep your watch safe from moisture and humidity. Just be sure to read the product specifications before you buy, as not all bands are created equal.
Finally, if you know you’re going to be in an environment where your watch is likely to get wet (like on a boat or by the pool), consider purchasing a waterproof watch instead.
