iDive300 Waterproof Case For The iPod & iPhone

By Andrew Liszewski

I always thought that diving itself was supposed to be an enjoyable activity, so I’m scratching my head as to why anyone would need to bring along some other form of entertainment while down there. But that’s exactly what the iDive300 deep dive waterproof case is for. It’s designed for the iPod, iPod Touch and the iPhone and allows you to watch movies or listen to music (with an included pair of over the ear speakers) at a depth of up to 300 feet underwater. And while down there you’ll still have control over your media thanks to a set of waterproof buttons on the side of the case.

With a price tag of $349.99 the case is kind of hard to justify, even if it does make decompression stops a bit less boring, but it does come with peace of mind thanks to a replacement warranty for your iPod or iPhone should anything ever happen to them as a result of the iDive300 failing.

    Okay, so the new iPhone 3G S is $299…

    I imagine people who work underwater (welders, etc), would enjoy this. And they make a ton of money to afford it.

    So, how does that case allow you to control the iPhone's touch sensitive screen? Does it at least allow you to take photographs or videos with your iPhone while underwater? I've been on hundreds of dives, some with very long decompression stops and never wished I could watch a movie while decompressing. Even if decompressing at 20 feet, you really want to pay attention to your surroundings and not get caught up in the latest update from GeekBrief. It's grossly overpriced, so I wouldn't be remotely tempted at $300. In case you would want to buy one so you could call your friends from under the sea, remember that saltwater is a conductor and you probably couldn't make or receive calls, even from 10 feet below the surface, unless the case included some kind of shielded antenna that extended to the surface. But, why go diving if you want to chat on the phone.
