20 Best Waterproof Smartwatches That Are Fashionable And Sleek

Smartwatches have always been pretty high-tech, but as time goes on, they get more advanced with added useful features. But sometimes, features are more about where these watches can be used rather than how they can be used. And that’s where a waterproof smartwatch comes in.

While not all smartwatches are waterproof and are, instead, water-resistant — meaning they can be rained on or water can fall on them for a few minutes — it's important to check each smartwatch’s specs before submerging them for a prolonged amount of time. Accidental water exposure and occasional dunking are one thing, but tread carefully before you wear it underwater or for water-based activities.

So, what's the best smartwatch for your wrist? This guide will help you decide.
