Every electronic device we buy these days comes with certain terms & conditions. Certain boundaries to what we can and cant do with the device. “You can do this… But not that.” “You can use it here… But definitely not there.” The same is true when it comes to “waterproof” devices. Consider these quotes:
“This means that the phone can survive up to 1.5 meters underwater for 30 minutes (note, however, that you shouldn’t use it in salt water).”
-CNET Xperia Z3 Review
“No more worries about getting sand in your E-reader, though all of this only applies if you keep the flap on the bottom shut.”
-Jamie Carter TechRadar (Kobo Aura H2O Review)
Q: Can I use my Galaxy S5 device in Sea water or a Swimming pool?
A: We advise not to expose the device to water at high pressure, and avoid immersing the device in hot water, salt water, ionized water, or soapy water.
-Samsung.com FAQs: Galaxy S5
“In compliance with IP65 and IP68, the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact are protected against the ingress of dust and is waterproof. Provided that all ports and covers are firmly closed…”
-Sony Terms & Conditions
What do all of these quotes have in common? Limits. Whether its temperature, port covers or salt water, every device claiming to be fully waterproof has its limits – except for HZO. HZO technology offers a solution without limits; without boundaries. By protecting devices from the inside out, HZO creates a barrier between the vital circuitry of the electronics and any liquid or debris that could potentially harm it, while allowing device designers the freedom to design their products completely unconstrained by the need to add seals, port covers, or cases.
With HZO protected devices you can go anywhere you want to go, and do anything you want to do. Salt water? You’re covered. Soapy water? Of course. Hot water? Go for it. Dirty water? Gross, but why not. In an HZO Protected World there is no “fine print,” no conditions and no limits.
