Catalyst Announces the World’s Most Waterproof, Fully Functional Cases for iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and 38mm & 42mm Apple Watch Series 2

Next generation designs set new industry benchmark for waterproof ratings while providing complete protection for the device

HONG KONG – November 1, 2016 Catalyst, the manufacturer of the world’s most protective, versatile and waterproof iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch cases and accessories, today announces newly designed, high-performance waterproof, drop proof cases for the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus as well as the 38mm and 42mm Apple Watch Series 2, available for pre-order today.  Catalyst sets a new industry standard for protective, waterproof cases for the latest generation of Apple devices. Each case is tested waterproof to 33ft (10m) for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus cases and to 330ft (100m) for the Apple Watch Series 2 cases. This doubles the waterproof rating of current Catalyst cases.

The newest cases from Catalyst protect against dust, dirt and sand particles that can scratch and ruin the device. The cases are designed to meet or exceed Military Standard 810G for drops and shocks up to 6.6ft (2m).

“Catalyst has developed a new line of waterproof cases that sets a new industry leading standard for total protection.  Our latest products offer the highest level of waterproof protection using our proprietary air and water tight case construction featuring our True Sound Acoustics that allow clear audio transmission over a frequency range of 50Hz to 20,000Hz. Our solutions protect your device from all the elements,” said June Lai, CEO of Catalyst Lifestyle.

Catalyst case for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is designed to be the Ultimate case for the Ultimate device ™ for everyday life. The cases are made of impact resistant polycarbonate, a soft-touch rubber bumper, silicone seals and air and water tight acoustic membranes.

Available for both 38mm and 42mm Apple Watch Series 2, Catalyst cases for Apple Watch are designed with True Sound Acoustic membranes and the case and band materials are compatible with outdoor use and in seawater.  Other key features include the military grade impact protection, the ability to access the touchscreen and pair with Bluetooth as well as monitor heart rate and charge the device, all without removing the case. The ultra-slim profile compliments Apple’s sleek design and features Catalyst’s signature rotating crown dial and tactical side button. 

“I am incredibly proud of the products our team has developed and brought to market over the last several years.  Our latest creations are hands down the most high performance, rugged, everyday cases that we've ever made” said Josh Wright, Catalyst Chief Creative Officer. “But we do more than protect.  Catalyst enables people to take and use their devices at the beach, snowboarding or skiing, in turbulent weather and in rough and dirty work environments.  I’m excited to introduce this new line of products to the market.”
