Turn Your Smartphone into a Waterproof Underwater Camera

Aryca WS12W TIDE Waterproof Smartphone Case, White

The mortal enemy of the Smartphone has always been water. These wonderfully fun devices are attached to us at the hip but when our daily activities take us to such places as a beach, lake or pool we either need to not bring them with or hide them somewhere we perceive to be safe from water and sand. This, however, is now a problem of the past. The TIDE Waterproof Smartphone Case from Aryca is designed to safely protect Droid Smartphone’s from sand, snow and water. This waterproof case is IPX8 certified which means it will protect the contents within even while submersed in water. With this case you can safely bring your Smartphone underwater with you up to 20 feet (6 meters) and use it to snap underwater pictures or take videos. The case has a clear silicon protective membrane on the front which supports touch screen giving the phone full functionality to still text or make calls. Even if the idea of bringing a phone underwater makes you tremble the case can at least bring peace of mind that your phone will be safe when brought around water. By also protecting the phone from sand, places such as the beach, river or lake are no longer a cell phone danger zone. Also included with the TIDE Waterproof Smartphone Case is a floating lanyard that attaches to the top of the case. Keeping with the peace of mind theme, this helps make sure that your phone won’t sink whether it is brought into the water on purpose or falls in accidentally.

Make the Most of Each Workout by Monitoring Your Pulse Via an iPhone or iPod Touch

February 27, 2012 Leave a comment

Scosche IPTM myTREKTake your workouts to the next level with the myTREK armband from Scosche. With the myTREK armband users will get real-time pulse readings and audio prompts while working out to help guide intensity levels. They will also be able to track calories burned, distance traveled, speed, workout duration, progress relative to goals and even map out a running or biking route. This is beneficial because it lets the user know when they are not pushing themselves hard enough as well as when they are over-training. By monitoring intensity levels users can make sure they are working hard enough to achieve training goals and stay motivated by seeing results.

The myTREK armband is able to connect to an iPhone or iPod Touch wirelessly via Bluetooth which means bulky chest straps and wires for measuring a pulse are a thing of the past. The armband contains dual LED optical sensors which send light into the skin and are able to provide a pulse reading while on the move. The way this works is that the myTREK assesses how much light gets through the skin and how much is reflected back to its optical sensor. This then gives an indication of the oxygen saturation of the blood and the frequency of the blood flow from the heart and lungs. Thousands of these readings are taken over several seconds and the myTREK is able to give a pulse reading using algorithms designed to calculate the data. The armband also comes with a remote control pad that will allow the user to control their music because it is connected through Bluetooth. A lithium-ion battery powers the myTREK and gives it up to 5 hours of workout time when fully charged and is easily recharged via an included USB charging cable. Working out around your home? Because the myTREK connects via Bluetooth users can workout up to 33ft away from their phone or iPod Touch and still have data readings sent to it for tracking. Read more
