Default Best Waterproof WiFi Capable Camera

What would you recommend for a wifi waterproof camera? I'm an Olympus fan (XZ-1, OM-D), but I don't believe their waterproof cameras have wife capability. Any suggestions welcome.

Now that's a weird typo! Wife capability! You know what I meant.

What conditions for the camera? "Waterproof" is a broad comment. How are you going to use the camera? Scuba? snorkeling? Pool? The ability to keep components dry is dependent upon depth (pressure) and time exposed. So, how waterproof do you need?

I'm just looking for a camera that I can take to the beach, kayaking, snorkeling etc, like the Olympus TG, Nikon AW, or Pentax WG series. Ease of use, durability, picture quality are relevant factors, but mainly I want to be able to transmit photos after taking them.

I believe the waterproof one with wifi is the Nikon Coolpix AW110.

Also the Fuji XP200. I just wondered if anyone here has had any hands-on experience with these cameras, or whether there are any others that have wifi capability.

The other option may be to get an SD card with wifi in it. So that might add wifi to an Olympus TG-2 or Pentax WG-3. Although I've not tried that.
