DIVEVOLK Unveils Full Touchscreen Housing for Smartphones

DIVEVOLK presented a new model of their underwater touchscreen housing at DEMA Show 2019, which allows all functions of a smartphone underwater.

The new model is more steady, robust and universal because it accommodates all the brands’ major models (iPhone6 – 11, Samsung S8 above, Note 9 above, and Huawei P10 and Mate 10 above).

Function wise, this is the only housing where you can use the entire touchscreen underwater. No buttons! Waterproof to 80 meters/262 feet, you can use all of your apps, camera for photos and change any settings just as you would on land. If there is an emergency, you can still use text and phone features at the surface. If your smartphone has a wireless charge option, that function will still be maintained whilst in the housing, so no need to take it out of the case to charge.

There are a few apps and features available, too. For example, you can broadcast audio underwater. Imagine being an instructor and needing to ask students to look back at you. Create a pre-set recording then play it for them to hear underwater. And imagine being able to listen to music underwater.

The DIVEVOLK touchscreen housing retails for US$159 (~€262).

Additional accessories to enhance photography like wide angle and macro wet lenses, that you can change underwater, are $35 (~€32). Different attachments from clamps to add lights or a tripod range from $45 – $54 (~€41 – ~€49).
