Heading to the beach or pool? There’s no need to leave your tech behind. You can listen to music, read a book, take pictures and keep in touch with the help of water-resistant cases and products.
The key to keeping your gear safe is checking their water-resistance rating, or IP code (Ingress Protection rating), to determine just how water-safe it is. It’s the second number after «IP» that you’ll want to check for water resistance. Something that’s splash resistant will have a rating of 4, 5 or 6. For a product that will survive a brief dunk in the pool, you’ll want a rating of at least 7. And, for continuous use underwater, look for an IP rating of 8.
Once you have the proper protection in place, you’ll be able to really relax. So check out my picks for making your tech beach or pool ready.
