Due to their IP57 (IPX7) rating, they are well protected from water. This rating means you can submerge them in 3ft deep water for 30 minutes, if you feel like doing it, and get them out without damage. This is a very handy feature.
Actually, the environment is not a big problem either because the Plantronics BackBeat Fit also have high dust protection of rating 5 as a well. The Plantronics BackBeat Fit last for long enough. They are made out of flexible, rubbery plastics that can take rather a lot of physical straining that would happen during sports activity. They won’t break easily and certainly, they are unaffected by water or sweat. For Durability Feature, See most durable earbuds
