Ever been pushed into a pool with your iPhone in your pants? Wanted to take underwater pictures with your iPhone? Make sure that your pricey Apple smartphone is water-prepared with these cool new cases.
The iPhone Scuba Suit (a.k.a. The driSuit Endurance)
Designed for the iPhone 4 and 4S, this “Scuba Suit” is designed to protect your device from water damage. Slip the scuba gear on your phone, and you can take clear underwater shots at up to 15 feet. According to the retailer Photojojo, each Scuba Suit has been factory-tested to guarantee that not a single drop of water will get inside your precious iPhone. The case is a liquid airtight barrier that has a touch-sensitive gel screen cover that ensures you can shoot photos underwater easily. Now you can bring your phone for pool parties while snorkelling, while fishing, or even while climbing a snowy mountain. The Scuba Suit is priced at $60 at Photojojo (and it may be even less through Amazon, depending on what specials happen to be going on at the time you look).
LifeProof iPhone Case
Do you have the latest iPhone? The LifeProof iPhone case for the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5 is one of the waterproof jackets of choice. Wired gives it the highest waterproof rating at IP-68 (Ingress Protection Rating). This IP code is the gadget’s rating protection against solid objects, accidental contact, and water in electrical enclosures and mechanical casings. An IP-68 rating means that the LifeProof iPhone Case proved to be dustproof and waterproof — giving full protection underwater, even if the device was submerged for a long time during testing.
By using this case, you also have access to all of your phone’s buttons and ports, so you can be sure of full functionality while diving, surfing, singing in the shower, or any other situation involving water. LifeProof also says that its LifeProof Fre iPhone 5 case is dirt-proof, snow-proof, and shock-proof. LifeProof sells its multi-colored cases for $79.99, but with the holidays fast approaching, you can now have one of these cases for $69.99. If you want extra protection, also grab the LifeProof Lifejacket Float for LifeProof iPhone 4/4S ($39.99), which ensures that your phone will float in case you lose it in the watery depths.
Amphibx Go Waterproof Case for Smartphones
Priced at $39.99, the Amphibx waterproof case is one of the best accessories you can buy for your iPhone (including the iPhone 5). The case is durable and works in depths of up to 12 feet (3.6 meters). Amphibx uses a patented LatchTight locking closure to keep the moisture out. The ClearTouch pouch also lets you use your touchscreen, buttons, and camera.
The best part is the SealTight headphone connector that also lets you place phone calls on your RingCentral business phone and listen to music. The Amphibx Go Waterproof Case also works for iPod, Android phones, BlackBerry, other smartphones, and large MP3 players. Clip it on to anything and go!
Waterproof your smartphone and you’ll never feel limited when exploring the great outdoors or going into the murky depths of the sea. These cases make great gifts, too!
