Best answer: Technically no, but the Charge 3 is water resistant for up to 50 meters, meaning you can go swimming, take a shower, and get caught in the rain without worry about it malfunctioning. If you wanted, you could also opt for the more affordable Fitbit Flex 2 or the smart Fitbit Ionic which are also great when it comes to dealing with water and moisture.

Amazon: Fitbit Charge 3 ($150)

While the Fitbit is swim and water resistant, it's not technically waterproof

You can dive up to 50 meters with your Fitbit Charge 3. Anything deeper than that and you might ruin your Fitbit, bit 50 meters down is pretty deep, so unless you're planning on scuba diving, you're probably going to be fine.

Working out and sweating on a regular basis, or taking a bath or shower with your Charge 3 shouldn't damage your device in the slightest. If you're diving to retrieve salvage from the Titanic, that might be a different story...

Other water-resistant Fitbit options

The Fitbit Charge 3 is an excellent fitness tracker, but if it's not quite what you're looking for today, there are other fantastic Fitbit devices on the market. The Fitbit Flex 2 and the Fitbit Ionic are both fitness accessories that are water resistant but offer different features with varying price ranges.
