Rated 1ATM( waterproof up to 10meters), the Connect 2.0 is water resistance, but I don’t recommend you wear it to the pool or ocean.
With 3100 chip onboard, the Connect 2.0 has a longer battery life than its predecessor. It has been tested to last about 24 hours from a single charge on regular usage. Moreover, the 3100 chip brings battery saver modes that’ll see it last a couple of days with battery saver mode activated.

This enables it’s to track your steps, distance, sleep, heart rate, and outdoor activities such as locations, routes you take and distance.
