It isn't a watch. While it does show the time, it is a fitness/activity tracker. It will count your steps, monitor your heart rate, sleep patterns, etc. It is rain-proof and splash-proof. However, FitBit doesn't recommend showering with your tracker on.
The only activity tracker that can be in the water is the Surge.
From the Fitbit website:
"The Fitbit Surge™ is water resistant to 5 ATM, or 50 meters, and the Fitbit Charge HR™ is water resistant to 1 ATM, or 10 meters. This means the trackers can be submerged and will still work when removed from the water. However, this does not mean the trackers can withstand the force associated with swimming strokes, so as mentioned previously we don't recommend swimming with the trackers."
