If you ask whether Fitbit Flex Waterproof or not, the answer is no. But it is splash and rain proof. So you can take it in rain but you cannot wear it in activity involving swimming. But there are ways to take it into the water. You could track your steps with your iPhone, but wearing tracker is more convenient. Fitbit Flex is not waterproof. The Fitbit official page says that the Flex is water resistant so it is fine taking spatter and rain, but it swim or shower is activity to prevent when wearing it. Other better Fitbit models, Surge and Charge, are allowed for swimming. However, you can find Swimproof model from Fitbit which is the Fitbit Flex 2.
Fitbit Flex Waterproof is not intended for showering and swimming. Without some additional measures, you should not regularly plunge it for best product resilience and endurance. Some great options are available if you are looking for something waterproof for your new fitness tracker. But make sure the tracker can be submerged by reading specs and reviews. A great choice is the Waterfi’s completely waterproofed Fitbit Flex. The waterproofed lineup includes a Fuel Band, Fitbit Charge HR, and Fitbit Alta by Waterfi. The only swimproof Fitbit you can buy from Fitbit is the Fitbit Flex 2. Waterfi is the only swimproof solution for other Fitbit models.
How To Make Fitbit Flex Waterproof
You can keep trackers dry but handy by putting into some waterproof case. A Ziploc bag can be a good idea but you will not be able to attach it to you, so putting it somewhere safe is your best option. To make Fitbit Flex Waterproof, you can use waterproof match case. Putting it in a pocket is the only way as you cannot attach this to anything. For swimming or water exercises, a good choice is waterproof cell phone arm band as you could still attach the tracker on your arm. You won’t jiggle and lose the tracker by putting the whole band in.
You can also put the tracker into DRYPAK Waterproof wallet and slip it into the swim wear. But you need to keep it to stay in place. Or use a key loop to attach Waterproof Pill Container to a swim wear strap or within swim trunks. Another method is using the carabineer to attach Witz Keep It Safe Case and clip a strap on your swim suit or inside your trunks. These methods can be handy and safe to make your Fitbit Flex Waterproof but it’s difficult to say how long it would last.
