Alright, so I know having a fitbit in some shorts when you jump into a pool is hard to explain, but it happened....a month ago now. Fortunately, some of my other friends had already ruined their fitbits by getting them wet. What did I do differently? When I took the fitbit out of the water, I didn't press the button on the device and then i dropped it in a bag of rice for 3 days before I did push the button. It was dirty, but it worked. Everybody else said that their battery wouldn't hold a charge after getting wet, but mine is doing great.
Hope that helps somebody someday.
