FORT COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today’s top smartphones can do just about everything, and with the newest case from OtterBox, they can go just about everywhere. From the No. 1 trusted case brand for smartphone protection comes a new line that allows technology users to embrace all the wet, messy, spontaneous fun life has to offer.* Introducing the OtterBox® Preserver Series® available now for the Apple® iPhone® 5 and coming soon for the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and Samsung® GALAXY S®4.

The OtterBox Preserver Series allows smartphone users to take on life’s daily adventures and extraordinary pursuits without thinking about the safety of their devices. This slim-line case provides the following protection**:

  • Waterproof: fully submergible up to 6.6 ft. for 30 minutes (IP-X8)
  • Drop proof: protects device from drops up to 6.6 ft. (MIL STD 810G-516.6)
  • Dust proof: blocks entry of dust and debris particles (IP-6X)

“About 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered in water, and technology is almost as pervasive,” said OtterBox CEO Brian Thomas. “We take our smartphones with us everywhere, and OtterBox is dedicated to making these activities as worry-free as possible. The Preserver Series is dependable, seriously waterproof protection that you can trust.”

The two-piece case snaps together for easy installation. It boasts a solid plastic frame lined with device-cradling foam and overmolded bumpers to absorb and deflect shock away from the device inside. The built-in screen protector guards the vibrant display from scratches without inhibiting touch sensitivity.

Protection doesn’t come at the cost of functionality with these precision-engineered GALAXY S4 and iPhone waterproof cases. All features are fully accessible and audio quality is uncompromised. The Preserver Series includes an adjustable lanyard for convenient, confident carrying.

The Preserver Series is seriously waterproof protection for every moment in life. To learn more, visit otterbox.com.
