Underwater Tech: Aquabeat MP3 Player, iPhone Swimsuits & More
For your upcoming underwater excursions, you'll need to dress your tech up with waterproof or protective accessories. Since so many people use their phones to take photos and record video content, there are quite a bit of "swimsuits" we've found to put on your phone. We also looked into underwater music players and camera cases for those who like to bring the digital camera into the sea.
iPhone Waterproof Cases 1. Scuba Case: We like to think of TAT7's case as a scuba suit for the iPhone. It's engineered so you can bring your iPhone while you scuba dive down to 100 feet. It offers enough protection to go swimming or do more extreme water sports like jet skiing, surfing or sky diving without worrying about damaging your phone. Just make sure it's fastened securely to you.
2. MarineCase: If you just want to take your phone with you on more leisurely water activities (like scuba diving 20 feet versus 100) the MarineCase could be a better outfit for your phone. It comes in black or white and is made of a clear silicon that supports iPhone use. It was designed for the iPhone4/4S, and apparently you can even respond to text or email if your reception reaches out to wherever you are.
Underwater MP3 Players 3. Speedo Aquabeat: This is the new and improved version of the first generation Aquabeats, with double the data storage. Perfect for those who plan on spending a lot of time swimming this summer — you can liven up your underwater workout with your own music. It functions up to 10 feet underwater, is iTunes compatible, and can play up to 9 hours of music.
4. Amphibx Fit: There are so many generations of the iPod, and anyone could have any version. The Amphibx is an accommodating solution for small MP3 players. It fits the iPod nano 6th generation and iPod shuffle 2nd and 4th generation, along with any other small MP3 players you might have.
Underwater Cameras 5. Nikon COOLPIX: This camera is like a Swiss Army Knife. It has a 16MP image sensor, a GPS, and shoots 1080p full HD video. You can go up to 33 feet underwater with it and it's simple, yet rugged.
6. Sony CyberShot TX10: A camera that works well both in and out of water — you can take the Sony CyberShot 16 feet underwater, and it's shockproof up to 5 feet high. It's highly recommended for shooting low light photos and has a nice slim design.
