The advancement of technology in the past decades has been nothing short of phenomenal. We now heavily rely on various gadgets to enable our transportation, communication, livelihoods—basically anything and everything that makes the world go. Technology has succeeded in making living in this age so convenient and enjoyable that the phrase “What a time to be alive!” cannot be any truer.
Just when we think it cannot go any further, there are now waterproof gadgets that can withstand harsh elements. You can use them anywhere, be it during your morning jogs, your outdoor adventures, or even just under a rainy weather. If you’re the type of person who’s on the go whether it rains or shines, here are a few waterproof gadgets for your shopping bucket list.
The COMPLEX Digital Watch has a warranty of one year for its machine feature.
Skechers doesn’t just bank on reliable sneakers for business; they also have an array of digital watches for you to choose from. Their COMPLEX Digital Watch has a diameter of 5cm, can function as a stopwatch, an alarm clock, countdown timer, and even a calendar! To top it off, it has a water resistance of up to 100 meters. It also has a stainless steel back cover, a Polyurethane strap, and comes in a striking bright red.
The gadget was specifically designed to withstand your toughest sport trainings and workouts.
Sony’s home appliances and cameras have always been top of the line, but their wireless speakers, portable chargers, MP3 players, and other handheld devices also give you more than your money’s worth. One of their waterproof gadgets is the WS410 Walkman® WS Series, which is a world’s away from the bulky Walkman CD players that were so popular decades ago. In this new model, you can choose and transfer your music with a USB 2.0 cord to the device with ease.
Its design can also handle temperatures from negative 5 to 45 degrees Celsius, can withstand sand and dirt, can be used up to two meters underwater for both fresh and saltwater, and has a total memory size of 4 GB or around a thousand songs. The WS410 Walkman® WS Series comes in four colors to choose from: lime green, ivory, blue, and black.
