The Fit 2 Pro features 5 ATM water resistance, meaning it can survive up to a depth of 50 meters, which is far superior to IP68, a rating that doesn’t specify an exact upper limit but can endure at least 1 meter of immersion.

Additionally the Fit 2 Pro will support music playback and even while offline through the Spotify app and feature GPS functionality.

Lastly the Pro model features a watch-style clasp that should help for workouts and the band will be compatible with iOS and Android smartphones. According to VentureBeat the device will come with a one year subscription to Under Armour’s premium tier of digital services, though as of right now it’s unknown if that will make its way to Canada.
