US diver finds numerous Apple Watches, cautions on bands.

Diver Darick Langos, hailing from Illinois, shares a crucial cautionary tale for Apple Watch wearers, particularly regarding the risks associated with the original bands. Operating his Scuba Bear Diving Recovery Service in Indiana's Chain O' Lakes, Langos has amassed an astonishing collection of 200 submerged Apple Watches during his underwater expeditions. Notably, he observes that many of these recovered watches still sport their original bands, a factor that, in Langos's experience, renders them prone to slipping off during aquatic activities.

In a statement to Shaw Local, Langos underscores the vulnerability of Apple Watches equipped with sports bands, emphasizing their tendency to come loose underwater. Beyond simply retrieving items commissioned by clients, Langos also happens upon lost belongings during his dives, consistently ensuring their safe return to their rightful owners without any intention of profiting, even from valuable items like a white gold ring.

Although Apple Watches rank among his most common discoveries, Langos's underwater ventures yield an eclectic array of items, including smartphones, jewelry, and prescription glasses. His overarching message remains clear: Apple Watch users must exercise caution with the original bands, especially when engaging in water-related pursuits.

Langos has adeptly transformed his twin passions—scuba diving and metal detecting—into a thriving enterprise through his Scuba Bear Diving Recovery Service. Operating on a fee basis and contingent upon the nature and location of the lost item, Langos's services extend to locating lost property with impressive success rates. He emphasizes his commitment to affordability, citing himself as one of the most cost-effective options in the field and expressing willingness to forego charges if unable to locate the lost item.

Regarding the Apple Watches recovered from the lake, Langos notes that while most retain their ability to hold a charge, unlocking them poses a significant challenge, hindering efforts to reunite them with their owners. However, by initiating a "call this number" message that redirects to a cellphone, Langos has successfully facilitated the return of certain watches. Despite his expertise, Langos remains transparent about the limitations of his retrieval capabilities, acknowledging that success hinges on factors such as the likelihood of pinpointing the lost property's location.

In summary, Darick Langos's experiences offer valuable insights into the risks associated with original Apple Watch bands and highlight the commendable efforts of individuals like him in preserving lost belongings and fostering a culture of integrity and responsibility within their communities.
