What is the difference between water-resistant and waterproof devices?

1 minute, 9 seconds Read

Water-resistant and waterproof are two terms commonly used to describe devices that can withstand exposure to water to some extent. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water to a certain degree, but they are not fully waterproof. They are typically designed to be able to withstand splashes of water, rain, or snow, but they may not be able to function properly when submerged in water. On the other hand, waterproof devices are designed to be completely resistant to the penetration of water. They can be submerged in water for extended periods without sustaining damage, and can still function normally.

When it comes to cameras and trackers, water-resistant devices are suitable for use in mildly wet environments, such as during light rain or snowfall. They can also be used for activities like swimming or snorkeling, as long as they are not submerged for long periods. Waterproof devices, on the other hand, are ideal for use in harsher environments, such as during heavy rain or when submerged in water for extended periods. They are also suitable for activities such as scuba diving or surfing, where the device will be constantly exposed to water. It is important to note that the level of water resistance or waterproofing can vary between different devices, so it is important to check the specifications of the device to ensure it is suitable for the intended use.
