Cracked my Go Pro Hero 5 Black touch screen

Hey Guys, I accidentally dropped my Go Pro Hero 5 and now it's cracked. I was wondering if I want to use it under water again, will it work if I use a super suit?

If the screen is working, just use the SuperSuit when you are in water. Otherwise, the camera is probably fine the way it is.

With the SuperSuit it will be fine.  Just make sure the white gasket is frimly pushed into the housing and that you rinse the Super Suit well with clean water after use.

Thanks Daniel! Should I replace the screen and then use the supersuit? Or since the touch screen works just fine is it not necessary?
