Best Waterproof Fitness Tracker


This would have to be a tracker obviously designed to be able to go deep underwater and still work. You want a tracker that you can jog with go snorkeling, scuba diving, run, jog, walk, play baseball, basketball, and football with. You get the idea it has to be a tracker that is usable for playing all sports activities. Let us throw in there that a waterproof timer would be very practical for white water rafting. In rafting, you can be dumped overboard and completely submerged underwater and you really want that tracker to be working then.

The waterproof tracker would be nice for swimming as well. You will find that online that these waterproof trackers range in price from over $230.00 dollars to around $27.00 dollars. Why the big difference in price? The $200.00 one must have all the bells and whistles and last a very long time in comparison the cheaper ones. Is it really worth spending over $230.00 dollars on a waterproof tracker? It all comes down to how much value you put on a waterproof tracker and what you want one to do for you. Of course, it really depends on how much money you want to spend on one. Let us move forward into the reviews.

waterproof tracker is a small-sized and large-sized tracker

Benefits and Uses: This waterproof tracker is a small-sized and large-sized tracker and sells for a whopping $269.00 dollars. Is it worth this much money? It can be immersed down to 30ft. of water. Considering the high price of the tracker, that is not really that deep. You would expect to be able to submerge down to a couple hundred feet at that price. You can become familiar with yourself as you track your vitals and this gadget has a new function called the “Cardio Fitness Score” which may be the same thing as saying it will monitor your heart rate. The display screen is bigger than ever and easier to read. On the screen, you will read all the vitals you care to look at.

You can track your vital signs every day 24-hours a day. The battery is rechargeable and will last for five days. The company has attached a one -year warranty on the product. The tracker’s charge 2 was completely waterproof by the altimeter being completely sealed. This will affect “floors climbed” but it will not influence any other readings. It weighs 10.6 ounces and its measurements are 8 x 4.1 x 2.1 inches.

Feedback: The user said the tracker worked well for the first 4 months and they wore it everywhere even in the shower. It would hold a charge for 5 days just like it is supposed to. Then the charge would not last through the afternoon. The consumer still thinks it is a great product despite the fact it quit working after only 4 months. The product has a one-year warranty but it should not have stopped working after 4 months. It costs $269.00 dollars and it stops working after 4 months? Either the customer bought a defective tracker or the product is made very poorly. At the $269.00 price, it should not stop working after only 4 months.

Another person states the tracker is fun and they are still figuring out all the functions it can perform. They have found out how active they are or how inactive they are. It also has indicated to them their lack of a restful night of sleep. They seem happy with the tracker. This woman originally purchased the tracker in June of 2016 and it was defective. The next one she received in early July 2016 and she loved the tracker especially a few functions she mentioned in her review. It worked great and she wore it everywhere then in July of 2017 it died. She contacted customer service and they were of no help to her. They said the product was one week out of the one year warranty and they could not replace it. You would think of the price they charge for the tracker they could have given her a new replacement it was only one week out of warranty.

They offered her a 20% discount on a new one which is not that much. It would have brought the price down to $249.00. She had owned that type of waterproof tracker for years. She says she cannot afford to be paying $200 dollars every year for a new one. She cannot be blamed for this way of thinking. She will never buy this company’s tracker again and she is looking into other options. She said it seemed kind of suspicious that the tracker would break just after the warranty expired. She could be right. The company refused to take a look at the tracker when she offered to send it in for them to look at. This too seems very suspicious.

The tracker should not be breaking down after barely being used for one year. Remember the other tracker broke down after only 4 months. There seems something really wrong with the reliability of the tracker. The first one she got was defective that seems kind of fishy as well. The company did not provide her with quality customer service in her time of need. They lost a long time customer because of their poor customer service response. It makes one think twice about buying a tracker from this company. This consumer said beware of buying a Waterfi Fitbit tracker.

valuable for tracking health issues

Benefits and Uses: This tracker can be valuable for tracking health issues and they continually keep one aware of what their body is doing during the day. They could even potentially save a life. This tracker will monitor your light and deep sleep hours. It also has an alarm function for that morning wake up call. The tracker will vibrate to remind you to rise and shine. If you connect to the matching application via Bluetooth the tracker will send you notifications regarding the particular applications you are tracking.

This device will record data from these sports precisely. This is a great feature the tracker provides and this tracker is reasonably priced. It is compatible with some common devices and it even has a USB charging port for convenience. One charge lasts for 8 days and it comes with an 18-month warranty. ( The $200.00 tracker comes with a 12-month warranty and one charge lasts for only five days compared to this tracker’s 18-month warranty and the battery charge lasts for 8 days on this tracker. This tracker is a fraction of the cost of the $200.00 tracker.)

Feedback: The face is dim without it being plugged into the smartphone. But once it is plugged into the smartphone it works very well and the face is easy to read. The customer likes all the benefits they get for the price of the tracker. They bought this one just before Christmas and they love all the things it can do. They also like the price.

Another consumer could not bind this to his phone like he could fitpro to his phone. There is no music mode like it says in the manual. The company needs to clear up this problem they need to add music mode to the tracker. They say it has it in the manual but it is not on the tracker. This could be conceived as false advertisement by the company and if the word gets around it could cost them a lot of future customers. One consumer said this is not a fitpro. He also says that he bought this to see if he liked wearing something on his wrist all the time and he did not want to spend a lot of money.

The SMS does not work and he entered his personal data in the tracker and the next day it showed he lost 20 lbs. and he grew 4 inches dream on. He entered the realistic information. He says the sleep application works but the alarm does not vibrate to remind him to wake up. The manual is confusing and very hard to follow. He is not sure if the heart monitor and pedometer work accurately or not. He is not sure if the sleep alarm works he will give it time. If it doesn’t work he will give it away. He gave it 3-stars because of the display, date, and time work.

This product is a good price but that price is beginning to reflect the quality of the product and that quality is going downhill. The manual is confusing, the manual says there is a music mode there is not. The one consumer’s SMS doesn’t work his heart monitor may be inaccurate and it displays his personal information inaccurately. It doesn’t fit into another client’s phone and the display is weak without being plugged into a client’s smartphone.

They recommend others should try it. A woman consumer says she likes the size of it on her wrist and the display is easy to read. It motivates her to exercise more as she can track her progress on the tracker. Another consumer says it is easy to use and he can activate his phone camera with it. He did not want to spend a lot of money on one so he tried this one. It has many features he enjoys using. He likes it so much that he will buy two for his sons at Christmas. This guy is sold.

The father bought this tracker for his son as a Christmas present. He wanted to test it before he gave it to him. He is impressed with all the features it has and it has been running for 5 days without having to be recharged. The display is clear to read and the data is kept accurately. He likes the weather application the best and he was impressed that it still collected data when it was away from the phone. Now, he is thinking about keeping it for himself and not to give it to his 9-year-old son. It has everything the son wants all the bells and whistles and gadgets. The father likes the price.

This disgusted consumer says he either got a lemon or all the rave reviews on this product are fake. The tracker doesn’t count steps then erases the steps programmed into it. It also may be a good application for Android but if it doesn’t work it is useless. The consumer says this tracker is a no go and he will not use it anymore. Why would the rave reviews be fake? This seems like an unreasonable assumption on the part of this consumer.
