Australian-based technology company, Dog & Bone, announced a new, slim water and drop proof case featuring a first-of-its-kind pairing for the new iPhone 6S with a flexible glass impact screen rated the world’s highest impact standard.
The Wetsuit Impact for iPhone 6S and for the 6S Plus fuses ever-so-slim durable technology with flexible glass impact screen protection, making it more than capable of enduring the bumps and mishaps of a full and active life. Dog & Bone’s newest all-protection case joins an innovative product line-up that includes the world’s first topless direct touchscreen waterproof smartphone case, and the first shockproof wireless charging case with fast wireless charging.
To absorb the knocks and bumps of daily life, the Wetsuit Impact exceeds tough Military standards (MIL STD 810G) withstanding drops and water immersion to 6.6 feet (two metres). It has an Ingress Protection rating of 68 – the highest level from water and dust. With its combination of water, snow, dirt and sand protection, the Wetsuit Impact is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts whether on the slope, mountain biking or shooting rapids.
The case blends the highest standard impact screen protection – 9H – with sophisticated protective technology, style and function. A premium rubber overmolded bumper adds a second durable layer of protection, and provides for a better grip. While the flexible glass screen is finished with a high performance coating for resisting fingerprints, smudges, scratches, and for touch screen sensitivity and clarity.
Lee Ranchod, Dog & Bone’s Founder and Director, says the new Wetsuit Impact reflects the company’s mission to deliver all-protective cases to suit the way we live.
“We love to push the boundaries of mobile technology and, by doing so, help to reshape its future,” Mr Ranchod said.
“This means listening to consumers and understanding their wants and experiences, and using the knowledge to develop innovative products that make available features and benefits previously not afforded.
“We know consumers want slim protection that is both functional and looks good. Two other priorities our customers have repeatedly told us they love when it comes to mobile protection is all-weather protection, and impact screen protection. It was an obvious choice, then, for us to ‘marry the two’ together,” he said.
As well as providing added screen protection, Mr Ranchod said the flexible glass screen provided added benefits of touch screen sensitivity and maintained screen clarity.
“Dirt and grime easily wipe clean rather than absorbing into the screen, discolouring it and affecting the user experience – a pet hate of standard pet film coverings,” he said.
Wetsuit Impact iPhone for 6S/6S Plus will be released this month in three colour options – Blackest Black, Silvertail and Electric Orange with an SRP of USD$79.95 for the iPhone 6S/6 and USD$89.95 for the iPhone 6S Plus/6Plus. For more information go to www.dogandbonecases.com
