Waterproof Fitness Trackers

What are Waterproof Fitness Trackers?

We just love the idea of waterproof fitness trackers, an equipment that is tough enough to go wherever you go, even when that involves a dozen laps in the pool or a post workout shower. At the gym, in the pool or for the outdoors, a waterproof fitness tracker is an ideal equipment to track body performance and fitness levels. There’s a wide range of waterproof fitness trackers in the market, varying in styles, shapes, features and sizes, ones that are dedicated for swimming, steps tracking and triathlon tracking. We can expect top quality waterproof fitness trackers to be more sturdier than average smartwatches, with the ability to handle bumps, shakes, and most importantly, sweat, that comes with workouts.

Things to consider when buying Waterproof Fitness Trackers

1.100% Waterproof

If you’re going to use the fitness tracker for swimming it needs to be completely waterproof. Which means it has to be tightly sealed and should have the ability to handle the underwater environment for long time periods. Water resistant is regarded as the lowest level of water protection and essentially means the device in question is designed to made difficult for water to infiltrate.

2.Waterproof Rating

It’s an important factor to look out for when buying waterproof fitness trackers. We need to understand the IP and ATM standards – the numbers indicating how well protected is the device against water.

IP – This stands for Ingress Protection, the level of protection provided against intrusion, dust, accidental contact, and water. This is a rating system that’s set up by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

ATM – ATM stands for atmosphere pressure unit. ATMs are translated into water depth to indicate how deep can a device be submerged. So if you have a waterproof fitness tracker that promises 10ATM waterproofing, it is able to withstand pressure equivalent of 100 metres depth.

3.Design & Functions

Fitness trackers needs to be user-friendly, lightweight and comfortable to wear, while giving accurate readings at the same time. The software included in the tracker must be able to sync with smartphones.A good waterproof fitness tracker should have these key performance functions,

  • Calories consumption counter
  • Distance measurement
  • Stroke count
  • Stroke rate sensor
  • Stop watch
