Fitbit has long been the foremost fitness tracker brand on the market—so much so that the term Fitbit is virtually synonymous with the whole concept of fitness trackers as a whole. And they’ve stayed at the vanguard of the trend by integrating its tech with the Amazon Echo and catering to the style-conscious enthusiast with its Blaze smart watch. They’ve even introduced the Aria smart scale, to track your weight relative to all those steps you’re taking.
But for all its ubiquity, Fitbit had one major weakness: water. While its trackers were generally advertised as water-resistant—they can withstand plenty of sweat and the occasional spill—wearers were advised against wearing a Fitbit for a shower, let alone a marathon ocean swim.
That all changed Monday as Fitbit launched its new Flex 2, the brand’s first “swim-proof” tracker. Together with the newly launched Charge 2, which adds some new features to the do-it-all original, the Flex 2 marks Fitbit’s latest attempt to add some muscle and versatility to its calorie-counting lineup.
