Best Waterproof Fitness Tracker 2018

Weather you live at the gym and are a fitness junky or are just beginning your weight loss journey, fitness activity trackers have become all the rage in helping you succeed with your fitness goals.  In fact I think more people have them then don’t.  When fitness activity trackers first came out they were pretty basic, but now fitness activity trackers come with more advanced features such as personal coaching, real time statistics, guided breathing sessions, music player and being waterproof. I feel that it is important for a fitness tracker to be waterproof even if you don’t use it to track swimming. I owned a fitness activity tracker and it was not waterproof, I can’t tell you how many times I got into the shower with it on. I have had a lot of friends ask me what I think the best waterproof fitness activity trackers are, so I decided to do some research and here is what I came up.
