Why Fitbit?

One of the healthy, technology trends on the market are wearable fitness technology. There are various different styles and brands out there trying to make big bucks. One of the most well known fitness technology producer is Fitbit.


Fitbit has been producing for years since taking off in San Francisco, California.

These are the product line up:

  • Fitbit One
  • Fitbit Zip
  • Fitbit Flex 2
  • Fitbit Alta 2
  • Fitbit Charge 2
  • Fitbit Surge
  • Fitbit Blaze 2

These are activity trackers, wireless-enabled wearable technology devices. Their capabilities include:

  • Tracking number of steps walked
  • Monitoring heart rate
  • Tracking quality of sleep
  • Counting steps climbed

Countless people favor and enjoy wearing these stylish, yet essential fitness watches on a daily basis. Whether you have the old version or the latest in stock, these devices were made for one purpose, to help track our fitness/health goals.

These are very well developed and initiated goals. Fitbit has built so much fandom and respect from over millions of users over the world. However, there is one thing Fitbit really needs to step up.

As much as these products are stylish and efficient, they are not waterproof yet.

It’s sort of funny how a product made and developed for years for the purpose for working out and being a fitness partner, is still limited to just dust-and-water-resistance.

What’s more funny is that imitations of Fitbit products that are way less expensive and uglier than the original is waterproof.

Apple’s 2nd generation of apple watches came out with waterproof capability. Before Fitbit.

Technically, there is only one Fitbit product that is waterproof–Fitbit Flex 2. However, one negative aspect of the Fitbit Flex 2 is that it doesn’t tell time. It’s a unique product that is versatile in various ways you can wear it, but it’s sad how that’s the only Fitbit product that is waterproof as of right now.

My question is “Why not already?”

What is Fitbit waiting for?

I love Fitbit products and I would love to invest my money on one of them, but before that happens I would like to see waterproof versions emerge sometime in the near future.

How cool would it be to be able to swim and shower with your Fitbit Charge or Fitbit Blaze?

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one anticipating this new feature in the next line of Fitbit products. I really hope they do it soon.


I’m excited, Are you?
