When swimming, headphones and players are especially vulnerable to water, so you need to select special models with moisture protection. Moisture protection must be at least IP68, the best option would be IPX7/IPX8. Some headphone models have interchangeable earbuds for different situations, such as running or swimming, please pay attention to this when purchasing.
For watches, the index WR is used, where the numbers following the letters indicate the possible diving depth.
