Now it’s possible to swim and text at the same time

If you are sensibly leaving for a sneaky bit of beach to avoid this, the rubbishest month of the year, the problem of what to do with your phone comes nearer to a satisfactory solution with this glorified plastic bag, the Proporta BeachBuoy waterproof case.

Simply slide your phone into the BeachBuoy, seal it (not without difficulty) and you have a sand- and waterproof jacket for your precious technology. Unlikely as it may seem, it keeps the contents safe from water down to a depth of 5m, so you’re even free to drop your phone in the drink. The phone will also work in the BeachBuoy, so you can even text while swimming. If you must.
