    The OBEX can go down to 2 meters for up to 30 minutes or down to 1 meter for continuous submersion.

    So quick question; i know the deepest you guys said was 2 meters for 30. So if i go deeper; say 8-10ft will water get it? Have you guys tested it in deeper water?

    When will the pink and white one be available? I had a Lifeproof for my iPhone 5, but didn't keep either very long before switching back to an android phone. I can't wait!

    My Obex was delivered yesterday. Very good build quality, no issues with sound or when placing a call, everyone I called said I sound fine. Excellent design, very tight port covers, actually a littel hard to open the port covering the charging port. So far so good!

    The deeper you go the more water pressure that could cause the case to let in water. We do not suggest you go further than 2 meters for 30 minutes, however, we have had some customers go down to 8-10 ft depths and recovered the device/case with no water leaks.

    I will update this post as we get more concrete dates for the September releases.

    Sweet! And another question, i saw a guy put his Otterbox Armor for his Iphone 5 in water and water got in when he put his Iphone in the case. Turned out that the screen protector he had on his phone was the cause of the leak cause it made the phone less than .1mm thick so it affected it somehow. Does it matter if a screen protector is installed on the phone b4 put into the OBEX? Will that affect the Waterproof-ness? I know screen sensitivity might be affected but that's a non issue for me.

    Just got mine in the mail today and after doing the water test I must say that it is very slim and form-fitting. Although it's early if I have one gripe it's that the back is a little slicker than I had anticipated. Luckily there is good grip on the sides though. I was hoping for the black and Grey one but I couldn't wait and ordered the black and red instead.

    We will open up pre-orders for the other color combinations in the coming weeks. When we get a more concrete date, I will be sure to post on this thread.

    While we have had some customers use their screen protectors with the OBEX, we suggest not doing this as it can reduce the sensitivity with the two screen protectors on at the same time. The case is precisely designed to fit the device with no other accessories on it, so the thicker the screen protector, the more risk of not allowing the case to close properly.

    I apologize for this issue! I have not seen this type of issue with anyone else's case, so I will need to have our product team look into the issue further. In the meantime, I would suggest trying to take off and re-install the device in the case to see if that resolves the issue.
