At least two of our mods do have experience with TomTom watches so check back later today to see if there are any replies. (It's 4:35 am local time for one and 2:35 am for the other so not likely either is up right now .....:) )

Waterproof to 50 meters. It is at the bottom of the specs page on the tt website.

Have had my equivalent version (the 'Multi-Sport', just a bit different software, same case) in a swimming pool and at the beach any number of times without issue. When received, that was one of the test scenarios. Haven't tried it during any snorkeling or diving, not that a GPS signal is going to penetrate any water anyway! But you will have absolutely no problems in shallow water.

They also run them in New Zealand. A friend of ours went in one last year. Quite the mess........
