I've had several Misfit Rays and they are water proof. I've worn them in showers, the ocean, the pool. They have a Speedo lap counter that you can pay per month for, so I'm assuming the waterproofing is central.

None of them will be perfect for step count or distance, so it's best to check them out for yourself. However, the first thing I would check is whether it's water*resistant* or water*proof* and make sure that part of their claim is covered by warranty first... then test it while still covered by warranty. When I was shopping for wrist devices it seemed like the biggest fail to reviewers was waterproof claims. Then I would find a measured course (most high school tracks if open to the public) and test the step and distance accuracy. I went from Garmin Vivofit to Garmin Fenix and the Fenix came up with about the same step count, but somewhat less distance. Turns out the Fenix is almost dead on for distance and I was kidding myself for a long time with the Vivofit. Regardless of their accuracy though, they are usually consistant and you can see if you're making progress from day to day even if the numbers aren't exactly perfect. Good luck!

I have an Apple Watch but sometimes wonder how accurate it is so I ordered a Misfit. I also like the idea that it's waterproof and it can monitor my sleep. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

When you want to succeed as much as you want to breathe, then you will be successful.
