SAN DIEGO, May 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The season for capturing memories on backcountry trails, raging rapids and perfect waves is in full swing. The water-resistant Samsung® GALAXY S® 5 is designed to handle the occasional splash of water, but with new LifeProof® cases, it is transformed to take on all of summer's adventures. Introducing the waterproof, drop proof and dirt proof protection of LifeProof fre® for Samsung GALAXY S 5.
LifeProof fre gives GALAXY S 5 users the freedom to ride through rough terrain on a mountain bike, surf at the beach and hike remote mountains without their smartphone holding them back. The case provides IP68 protection for submersion in up to 6.6 feet of water for one hour and complete dust protection. While the GALAXY S 5 isn't designed to take on drops and dings on its own, LifeProof fre passes military standards for shock and impact protection and can handle drops of up to 6.6 feet, taking the GALAXY S 5 to the next level for active lifestyles and leaving worry at home.
"With its great camera and variety of fitness apps that encourage an active life, the GALAXY S 5 is the smartphone to have this summer," said LifeProof CEO Brian Thomas. "A LifeProof case lets you take the GALAXY S 5 from water resistant to waterproof, and guards against drops that the device isn't designed for. LifeProof fre goes above and beyond to ensure you can take your GALAXY S 5 into the action with you, instead of leaving it on the sidelines."
LifeProof fre includes a built-in screen protector to help guard against display scratches without inhibiting touch screen functionality. The waterproof GALAXY S 5 case is designed to complement all device features and functions including heart rate monitor, fingerprint sensor speakers, volume controls, touch screen and cameras.
LifeProof fre for GALAXY S 5 is now available in black and white for $79.99 on lifeproof.com and select retail locations.
