Tech toys and liquids don’t mix. It's almost cliche, and for the most part, totoo naman, which is why we're always reminded to empty our dirty pockets of our smartphone when we're about to go swimming lest we want to cry over our wasted katas ng dugo't pawis.
But a true-blue geek will tell you that this isn’t always the case. So with this in mind, we present to you waterproof gadgets that can work with a healthy splashing of the dreaded H2O.
One of Sony's recent mobile gems, the Xperia Z is one helluva packed phone. Think 5-inch Full-HD touchscreen, quad-core processor, blazing-fast LTE connectivity, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. And it looks elegant, too! But what makes the Xperia Z a stand-out device is the fact that it's can take a beating and a splashing, thanks to a tempered glass panel that's surrounded by anti-shatter film. That's protection we'd like with our condoms!
Waterproof-ability: Up to a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes.
