Whether you’re fishing from a pier, out on a kayak, or deep sea fishing with friends, keeping your mobile phone dry while near or on the water is always a priority—which is why we recommend having waterproof phones. While numerous mobile phones have become water-resistant, it’s always good to know what you’re buying and whether your phone will survive a fall into the water while fishing. What consumers need are waterproof phones that feature excellent IP ratings, sealed screens and ports, and protection at the deepest submersion.
Modern rugged phones are now built for tough environments, from construction sites and farms to extremely rugged terrains. Without compromising on design, most waterproof phones are now more than just splash-proof. They have been designed to perform in the wettest of environments—meaning you can use them without worrying about whether they’ll survive a fall in the water.
Furthermore, the touch-screen feature has been redesigned with innovative wet finger tracking technology, so you can use your smartphone even when the screen is wet—very helpful if you’re a fisherman, a windsurfer, or a kitesurfer.
