ATM or “atmospheres” is the amount of pressure a watch can withstand before leaking. A 5ATM watch will withstand pressures equivalent to depth of 50 meters, or 165ft under water. It is important to note that this is a measure of pressure NOT depth.
5ATM is suitable for rain, splashing and showering but not diving, snorkelling or water sports.
