    I just looked at the 1 atm rating and converted meters to feet. 10 meters is 32 feet, that's pretty deep and a lot of pressure. My dog isn't gonna be diving that deep!

    I called Garmin, here's what they told me. The collar is designed to be in the water on the dog swimming. Water intrusion would not void the warranty but they would ask a lot of questions like was...
