Good morning,

Looking through my list for what I need to pack for BMQ and on the list is "1 water resistant sport watch". Does anyone know offhand if a Fitbit is acceptable?

Thank you in advance

Is it waterproof?

Are you going to be okay if you break it on course?

If you answered "No" to either one of these questions then a Fitbit is not acceptable.  I recommend getting a cheapo digital watch that has an alarm and a timer on it.

Your fitbit will not make it through course. Don't chance it. Buy a low-end Timex (approx. $40 at Walmart). It will sustain any impact, scuffing, water/rain and other general abuse it's guaranteed to encounter. Good luck!

Takes a licking. Keeps on ticking.
