Is Fitbit Sense waterproof? Can I swim with Fitbit Sense? Fitbit Sense water lock? Fitbit Sense waterproof rating?
Are you wondering if your new Fitbit Sense is waterproof? or do you want to know how to use the water lock on your device? Well, in this post, we will be answering the popular and must trading question that many people want to know.
Is Fitbit Sense Waterproof?
Well, on the Fitbit official website, the answer to this question is not entirely yes. Your Fitbit Sense is not waterproof. Instead, the device is water-resistant. Just like the Samsung S22 and the iPhone 13 are water-resistant not waterproof.
Your device comes equipped with a water resistance rating which helps it to survive a sweaty workout or swim in a pool. Generally, most Fitbit devices are water-resistant to 50 meters. However, you should note that water resistance may diminish over time and can be negatively impacted by dropping the device, exposing it to soaps, shampoos, conditioners, perfume, insect repellent, lotions, and high-velocity water.
What to Do When your Fitbit Sense Gets Wet
If your device gets wet, you should take it off and dry it well before putting it back on. In case it comes in contact with any liquid or other than freshwater, you should clean it with fresh water and dry it with a lint-free cloth.
Can I Swim or Shower with My Fitbit Sense?
Yes, you can shower or swim with your device. However, you should also know that not taking your device to the shower reduces the potential for exposure to soaps, shampoos, and conditioners which can cause long-term damage to it. The company doesn’t recommend taking your device to a hot tub or sauna.
Fitbit Sense Water Lock
You need to turn on the water lock to prevent your device screen from activating when you are showering or swimming. When the water lock is on, your screen locks, and the water lock icon appears at the bottom. Both notification and alarm will still appear on your tracker, but you must unlock your screen to interact with them
