Having a waterproof phone is all well and good, but let’s face it, sometimes you just don’t want to hold it to your head while your swimming, or bathing yourself. But you just have to have that conversation with someone right there, right then. Hey, we don’t judge. So what would make the whole thing make more sense? A waterproof Bluetooth headset, of course. And that’s exactly what the Wavetooth is (shocker, right?).
The Wavetooth Bluetooth headset is from Brando, and it’s designed to do exactly what you might expect. It’s waterproof up to 3 meters, which is about 10 feet, and as long as you don’t go any further than that (or let it fall any further than that), you should be able to yak away to your heart’s content. Not that we imagine you’ll be doing much talking under water, mind you.
As you might expect, the Wavetooth will work with any Bluetooth enabled smartphone out there. However, if you have an iPhone, you get some special bonuses. The Wavetooth headset comes with a special thin-lined bag that, if you put your device into it, will let you keep your iPhone dry, too. But! It will also let you use the touch-based device, too, as the material of the bag is thin enough to let you still use your phone, thanks to its “Touch Functionality.”
As for the specs that matter with any Bluetooth headset, Brando is saying that the Wavetooth will last you up to 13 hours of talk time, and give you 240 hours of stand-by time. Pricing is set at $57, and you can order it from Brando’s website.
