Replacement hero 5 - doesn't seem to seal properly

Hello! Just received a warranty replacement on my Hero 5.

The first one screen stopped working and gopro were fantastic in organising a replacement!

But, just opened the unit and it doesn't feel as tight on the battery seal as my new one. Looking at it...not doesn't seem completely snug...

WORRIED TO TAKE IT SWIMMING NOW... :(

Re: Replacement hero 5 - doesn't seem to seal properly

your new one was tighter then the replacement which is neweer?  if you're experiencing an issue get right back on the phone with them film it while  just getting the lip wet, pat dry see if water gets in?????
