It’s time to start looking for useful gadgets and accessories that will improve our lifestyles during upcoming summer days and my first suggestion is the BeachBuoy Waterproof Case from Proporta. This case was designed to keep your essential gadgets, like cell phones, protected from water while on the beach or at pool. It’s made of durable and flexible materials to allow you to continue using your smartphone even at five meters under water.
Proporta sent one of these for review and although it’s too early for beach, I’m anxious to use it this summer. Still, I was able to test it in one of my salad bowls filled with water and it works as advertised.
The sealing system is simple. There are two solid click seals and a Velcro strip that you have to set and roll. Instructions are right on the closure. What I like is that in case you drop the handset in the water, the case will bring it up and keep it floating so you won’t have to dive to rescue your device.
You can find Proporta BeachBuoy cases for any of your smartphone models. My case measures 185 x 135 x 5 mm and is guaranteed to keep water away even at five meters under water. There is also a lanyard attachment.
Having your smartphone sealed doesn’t compromise accessibility. You can continue to place or answers phone calls, browse the web and read your messages through the transparent screen.
Did you know that smartphone producers have found a way to make these devices 100% waterproof by applying a special solution in the form of a spray, during the manufacturing process, and that new smartphones prepared for production in the near future will all have this feature? Well, until then you can use the BeachBuoy case and even if you’ll get your hands on a 100% waterproof smartphone, you can still rely on it to protect other accessories from water, dust and sand, such as your digital camera, keys, chargers, and earphones.
