Hero 7 black in hot water

[ New ]
Can I submerge my gopro hero7 black in hot water without a protective case. I know it is water proof but am not sure about hot water (hot tub/hot springs).

I wouldn't recommend it as this may cause overheating issues with the camera (hot camera battery + hot springs w/o cooling = overheat).  It could also soften the rubber gasket seals.  You can pick up a cheap protective case online and it may be just worth the investment, don't risk your camera if you don't have to.
