I'd like that even if it didn't track in the pool. I lost the bodymedia when I jumped into a pool with it on.

I checked---not for the pool. Wish I could find one that did, too.

There's a chart that compares the various fitbit trackers. It says you can wear the flex in the shower, but I still don't think swimming, or it would say.

On the fitbit.com site it says water resistant. Here is the link: www.fitbit.com/flex

Yes, I remember Rockman saying it was not waterproof which is why I asked.

As I say I obtained this information from a review on Engadet! The link to the review is http://www.engadget.com/2013/01/08/fitbit-
flex-hands-on-at-ces-2013/

If you are still uncertain I would recommend that you contact Fitbit direct via email as they are really helpful, and if anyone knows the answer, obviously they will!

Just picked this up from an article on engadet:-

'The Flex is indeed a waterproof product and can be worn in the shower or even the swimming pool, though we wouldn't advise you take it diving. Despite this H20 resistance, the Flex won't track your butterfly strokes (or doggie paddles), but it will keep count of your steps, calories burned, sleep and distance walked'.

Hope this helps!

Know that they have a new product coming out---and someone said they thought it was waterproof but I think that I heard that it was just water resistant which is not the same. Any imput on this---I would love one that was waterproof for wearing to water aerobics as well as daily.
