There is nothing worse than taking your smartphone swimming. 

Save yourself the heartache and opt for a sturdy smartphone that can cope with a little water. 

Sadly, iPhones aren’t quite there yet. But, the latest Samsung Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge can both be submerged in to up to 1.5 metres of water for around 30 minutes. So they're ready for a quick dip in the pool or splash in the bath, but maybe not a proper swim or dive.

6. Armor-X Waterproof Soft Case

Tablets need a lot of love and care because, let’s be honest, they cost a lot, hold all your precious data and can be easily ruined by any spillages or knocks.

You still have full control of the touch screen, and it has  a floatable design as an added bonus. For less then a tenner, you can’t go wrong.

7. Tag Heuer Connected

If you’ve become addicted to the fitness tracker hype, then you won't want to leave yours at home. 

Forget water worries by snapping up a waterproof tracker  that you can wear all day to track your workout and calories burned in the pool.

The Tag Heuer Connected is the ultimate luxury choice with a premium feel, high quality display and a pretty fancy watch face. Billed as the perfect fusion of modern wearable technology and 150 years of watchmaking craftsmanship, this pricey option is made with titanium and sapphire to make it durable, waterproof and as beautiful as you’d expect. It also has 1GB of main memory, 4GB of storage memory and an impressive battery life of up to 25 hours. 

The only downside is the £1,000+ price tag that you would expect from the Swiss brand but if you can’t afford a Tag, try out these budget-friendly options that will also do the trick.
