Waterproof Fitbits – Which Tracker Is Water Resistant?

It’s not as easy as it seems to figure out which ones are waterproof Fitbits or water-resistant.

While no Fitbit tracker is fully waterproof, the majority of them are water-resistant to some degree.

The Fitbit Ace 2, Fitbit Versa, Fitbit Charge 3, Fitbit Charge 4, Fitbit Inspire, and Fitbit Ionic are all water-resistant Fitbit devices.

Water exposure is rarely covered by Fitbit warranties, so just how much water the system will handle is crucial.

Fitbit watches aren’t fully waterproof. While any Fitbit is water-resistant to some degree, none of them are suitable for deep-sea diving.

Let’s get the tech terms out of the way before we talk about how water-resistant Fitbits are.

The majority of devices have an IP (Ingress Protection) number, which indicates how waterproof they are. Anything with an IPX5 or IPX6 rating is water-resistant (sweat, fog, etc.) but not waterproof (full immersion, for example).

Fitbit, on the other hand, is noteworthy for not assigning official IP scores to any of their devices. As a result, it’s difficult to say how water-resistant all of their timepieces are.

Another thing to keep in mind: we’re talking about the Fitbit itself, not the bands, which can be rubber and water resistant, or cloth or metal and not do well when wet.

Each Fitbit’s water resistance:

At depths of up to 50 metres, the Fitbit Ace 2, Fitbit Versa, Fitbit Charge 3, Fitbit Inspire, and Fitbit Ionic can be used. When you get out of the pool, bath, or ocean, just dry it off because water will hinder it from properly testing the biometrics.

Versa Lite by FitBit

The FitBit Versa can handle water pressure of up to 50 metres.

Older Fitbit versions, such as those from the Alpha generation or earlier, are not marked as water-resistant on Fitbit’s support site and are unable to survive submersion.

The Fitbit Ace, one of the more recent versions, is listed as “shower-proof,” but it is not rated for submersion, so keep it away from the pool.
