Best Waterproof Gadgets to Take Anywhere

Love to travel? Tend to get wet everywhere? Not a problem.

By Riley Raul ReesePublished 7 years ago 4 min read

We live in a society that loves convenience and mobility. That's why so many gadgets are wearable, portable, and of course, waterproof. Today, you can find waterproof speakers, waterproof phone types, and even water resistant computer chips.

If you love gadgets but tend to find yourself getting soaked in the rain, jumping into swimming pools with the wrong stuff on your wrist, or just falling into the occasional puddle, these are the best waterproof gadgets to invest in.

The Fitbit Flex 2 is one of the best waterproof gadgets for people who want to get in shape, stay in shape, and track their health habits with ease. The Flex 2 is totally waterproof, which means you can keep wearing it while swimming, and like other Fitbit fitness tracker products, links up with the Fitbit app to make weight loss a breeze.

If you're looking for a flexible health and fitness wearable that can help you get results, the Flex 2 is a steal.

Adata makes a mean portable hard drive, especially when it comes to large storage amounts with small bulk. That's why one of the best waterproof gadgets for people who take a lot of photos or play a lot of PS4 games is their rugged-build 2 TB storage drive.

If you're super clumsy, you needn't worry if you have an Adata drive. They're shockproof and come with military-grade protection. So, they're as rugged as they come — and a typical drop won't hurt them.

Without a doubt, one of the best waterproof gadgets audiophiles you can buy is a waterproofed iPod bundle from Audioflood. These iPods are just like the ones you'd buy at the Apple store — except they've been treated with waterproofing stuff.

This bundle comes with waterproof earbuds, a carrying case, and a pair of standard earbuds, too. It olds up to 500 different songs, and offers you 15 hours of straight play, just like your regular iPod does. If you love your regular mp3 player, you'll love the waterproofed version even more.

Fugoo makes some of the best waterproof gadgets ever — especially if you're in the market for a Bluetooth portable speaker. A long battery life, awesome bass, and an incredibly rugged design means that you'll be able to play music loudly, clearly, and without worry about your favorite gear going on the fritz.

The Tough Speaker takes Fugoo's ruggedness to a brand new level. You can drop it, kick it, and get it soaked in rainwater...and it'll still sound just as crisp as it did right out of the box.

The Olympus Tough TG-5 Digital Camera is all about bringing photographer-quality shots to new places. That's why it's built to be rugged enough to withstand the most extreme environments possible. It's shockproof, dustproof, waterproof, and even heatproof.

Rugged as it is, it works just as well as some of the most delicate cameras out there. 4K video recording, 35mm-quality photography and a pro capture system means that you'll always get the shot you want without having to do *too* much work.

One of the best waterproof gadgets, outside of a waterproofed mp3 player, would have to be waterproof headphones. Panasonic's WINGS are a perfect example of what waterproof tech can do with the right design.

These headphones deliver high quality music, have hours of battery life, and also are comfortable enough for you to wear without too much discomfort or issues with earbuds falling out. These make great tech gifts for audiophiles, as well as folks who tend to sweat it out at the gym.

Everyone should have a flashlight in their home or car. After all, it's one of the only ways to get light during emergencies and inclement weather. Of course, a flashlight can only do so much if it isn't waterproof. That's why a waterproof flashlight is one of the best waterproof gadgets you can buy — and one you really have to own.

This small handheld LED flashlight puts out up to eight lumens of power, which is enough to let you see everything you need to see up close and at a distance. It's simple to use, and doesn't require too much charging, either.

GoPro is known for making some of the best accessories for drone users and professional videographers. The GoPro Hero5 is one of the best waterproof gadgets for travelers and people who want to get amazing shots of their every day adventurea — or when they're flying a DJI through the air.

Admittedly, it's pricey, but it's one of the most multi-functional and high-quality cameras of its kind. The Hero5 also works with all the best drones, too. So, it's safe to say it's worth the hefty price tag.

In the past, we have all lost at least one or two phones by dropping them in the toilet — or accidentally swimming with them in our trunks. Seeing your phone die from water damage is a nightmare, which is exactly why Samsung made waves by making one of the first waterproof smartphones in history.

It's water resistant for up to 30 minutes, as long as it's in less than 5 feet of water. Though it's not shockproof, this is still an amazing advancement in terms of keeping your most important things intact. If you love to swim or just tend to have phones drop in toilets, then this is one of the best waterproof gadgets money can buy.
