Can I swim or shower with my Fitbit device?
Learn about water resistance on your Fitbit device and how to clean and dry your device if it gets wet.
Most Fitbit devices are water-resistant to 50 meters. They're designed to be swimproof and stand up to even the sweatiest of workouts. See the table below and our user manuals for specifics as to whether your device is swimproof or splashproof.
Keep in mind that not all of our accessory bands should get wet, like those made of leather, metal, and woven materials. For more information about wearing your Fitbit device, see our Wear and Care page.

|Ace||Showerproof (don't swim with Ace - it's designed to survive splashes and spills)|
Water resistance may diminish over time and can be negatively impacted by any of the following:
- Dropping the device.
- Exposing the device to soaps, shampoos, conditioners, perfume, insect repellent, lotions, or sunscreen.
- Exposing the device to high-velocity water (for example, during water sports).
If your device gets wet, it’s important to take it off and dry it well before putting it back on. If your device comes into contact with any liquid other than fresh water, you should clean it with fresh water and a soap-free cleanser (like Cetaphil) and dry it with a lint free-cloth.
Even though it may be ok to shower with our water-resistant devices, not doing so reduces the potential for exposure to soaps, shampoos, and conditioners, which can cause long-term damage to your device and may cause skin irritation. We also don’t recommend wearing any of our devices in a hot tub or sauna.
Turn on the water lock setting when you're in water, for example showering or swimming, to prevent the buttons on your tracker from activating. When water lock is on, your screen and buttons are locked. Notifications and alarms still appear on your tracker, but you must unlock your screen to interact with them.
To turn on water lock, press and hold the buttons on your tracker > tap Water Lock > firmly tap your screen twice. To turn off water lock, double-tap your screen again.
Note that water lock turns on automatically when you start a swim in the Exercise app on Inspire 2.
