Scope a cell case
Ready to upgrade from that plastic baggie you used last year? Some options:
Get rugged: To defend a phone from more than the occasional splash or bump, go with a heavy-duty case. Look for one like LifeProof's Fre for iPhone ($80), which guarantees safety even when the phone is submerged.
Stay charged: Photos and videos will drain your battery quickly. If that's a concern, try Mophie's splash-resistant Juice Pack PRO ($130). So far, the case fits only iPhone 4 and 4s, but a version for the 5 is coming later this year.
Put on a coat: Don't like the bulk and weight of a case? Liquipel offers a water-resistant coating for $60 to $90. The company claims the coating protects against spills, although it can't stand up to a full dunking.
Samsung unveiled its brand new smartwatch, Galaxy Gear, priced to sell at $299.
