Is The Fitbit Charge 4 Waterproof?

The Fitbit Charge 4 is a great health and fitness tracker that has received many positive reviews throughout the years, but Is The Fitbit Charge 4 Waterproof?

Fitbit Charge 4 Open Water Swimming

Open water swimming is a discipline that takes place in open oceans, lakes, and rivers.

Charge 4 is a fitness tracker that is water resistant up to 50M. This means that the tracker can be worn when doing open water swimming.

However, keep in mind that there are certain bands materials that are not made for swimming, for example you should avoid wearing the woven band if you are planning on getting your Fitbit Charge 4 wet.

Despite the device being water resistant, Fitbit recommend users to dry the band straight after wearing the tracker while swimming or showering.

They also recommend not to wear the Fitbit Charge 4 in a hot tub or sauna.

Can I Shower With My Fitbit Charge 4?

Yes, as mentioned above the device is water resistant up to 50M, so wearing this health and fitness tracker while taking a shower is perfectly fine.

Can I Swim In Deep Water With My Fitbit Device?

The tracker is only water resistant to up to 50M

Is The Fitbit Charge 4 Waterproof or Water Resistant?

It is actually against international laws to use the word waterproof with any electronic or mechanical device. The correct term is “water resistant”. 

When something is said to be waterproof, it means that it will be able to cope with any type of water ingress, even beyond 50M. A watch or any other electronic device can never be advertised as waterproof.

So yes, the Fitbit Charge 4 is water resistant, not waterproof. But you won’t find any waterproof fitness trackers out there.
