4 Tu e sd a y, Ja n u a ry 7 , 2 0 1 4 NEW SEALCASE FOR GALAXY S4 IS PERFECT FOR PARENTS For years, smartphone case manufacturers have promised that their underwater, IP68-certified cases keep phones dry and safe from the thrills and perils of hiking, whitewater rafting, scaling Kilimanjaro, or – you name it. Although Concord Keystone can make those same claims with its new SealCase™, its new customers are the weekday warriors – those brave souls known as parents. The company just launched a new super slim, smart-looking case in the most desirable colors, which keeps the Galaxy® S4 safe and dry from, well, children, and features all the convenience and ease that parents love. Sure, Mom and Dad could be lounging poolside in San Tropez with a desire to take their smartphone for a dip, but more than likely, the potential- ly wet and wild scenario has the smartphone in the hands of a fast-moving toddler with an eye toward the nearest toilet. When the phone is flung into the bowl, parents can be sure the SealCase will keep the Galaxy S4 bone dry with sturdy watertight latches, seals and port covers. If families do finally make it to a beach or pool, the SealCase is waterproof up to 6.6/2 meters below the surface so they can capture images or record family video. Installing the S4 in the case is easy and quick, so there's no need for a lengthy study of diagrams. The onepiece, clamshell design opens on a single hinge. Slide the phone in the case, and click to lock it. That's all there is to it. No separate parts to disappear down a drain or drop into the hands of curious tots.
