Recommendation needed for a P&S waterproof/tough camera

I am looking for a P&S waterproof camera as an all-around, day to day carry. I don't have any experience regarding these type of camera. I just need it for inclement weather, a day at the beach/lake/etc. I don't dive, just snorkel and swim so depth is no concern. I just want a decent waterproof/tough camera on hand. Might do some video footage too if need be so need one with decent video. Low light (both stills and video) is a higher priority.

I see the following models:

Nikon has the AW120 (I have used the older model (AW110) for a day and it's ok. Hoping this newer one is better)

Panasonic has the Lumix DMC-TS5 (I have an LX7 so I know what kind of quality Pana have and I know the TS5 is not in comparison. Hopefully the TS5 will come close)

Olympus TOUGH TG-3 (I've read that this has the bigger sensor compared to the rest - leaning towards this due to its bigger sensor, hopefully better IQ)

Pentax WG-3 (No clue about this)

If anyone has experience on one or more of these models, please advice.

Thanks in advance.
