4 Ways to Protect Your Digital Devices from Disaster 1 of 5
LifeProof Case 2 of 5
This summer I watched my kids' dive coach hop on the diving board repeatedly with his iPhone and wallet in his pocket. "You're going to fall in and your phone will be toast, " I warned. "You need a LifeProof case." He swore he wouldn't fall in but I knew that at least if he did, a LifeProof would keep his phone dry even at the bottom of the diving well.
LifeProof cases are sleek, elegant, and fully sealed to protect phones from the elements. The company tests each one of their cases to ensure that it remains dryin inside before sending them out to consumers and encourages users to immerse the case in water to test it themselves before encasing their device in it. It's the best waterproof case I've found yet.
And what about our coach? He never fell in the pool. His phone remained dry. I still think I'm getting him a LifeProof Case as an end of the season gift just in case because there's always next season!

DryCASE 4 of 5
Those ready to set sail in a canoe, kayak, raft, sailboat, dinghy, or other vessel should plan on stashing their tech in a DryCASE before leaving the dock. DryCASE is a flexible, clear waterproof bag for your smartphone and tablet cases that works by vacuum sealing your device inside. Despite the watertight seal, you can still use your device while it's in the DryCASE. Attach the included lanyard or buoyant neoprene armband help ensure that your devices don't sink to the bottom of whatever body of water you happen to be traversing.
DryCASE makes cases for iPhone, Blackberry, Samsung, HTC, and Motorola smartphones, as well as tablet cases designed to fit iPad, Kindle, Playbook, Surface, and Nexus products.

Asurion Technology Protection 5 of 5
Despite the aforementioned products that can help protect your device, what happens when you lose it in a body of water or it finally succumbs to too much sand or baby drool? A device is just a device but as long as you have the content backed up, it can be easily restored but technology replacement insurance helps avoid costly replacement fees.
Asurion is a technology protection company that not only backs up your content but also provides location services in case it gets lost, security from mobile hackers, and covers your device past the manufacturer's warranty. It's like an insurance policy for your digital devices. If your device is lost, stolen, or damaged, just file a claim, pay a deductible, and get a replacement without any heartache or too much trouble.
