London, UK, 23 October 2013 – Wahoo Fitness, the leader in iPhone™ powered fitness, running and cycling devices, today announces two new protective cases for the iPhone 5/5s, specifically aimed at cycling and running enthusiasts – the PROTKT Bike Mount and the PROTKT Run. When used alongside your favourite fitness app, the PROTKT case gives the cyclist or runner access to their workout data in a secure, and easy to use case.
The PROTKT has an IPX5 waterproof certification and rugged design, which protects the iPhone in any weather condition. To prove the PROTKT’s durability credentials, watch an iPhone in a PROTKT case being dragged along by a Porsche.
The PROTKT Bike Mount
Building on the success of its predecessor – the iPhone 4/4s bike mount, the PROTKT is a weatherproof and shockproof mounting system that transforms the iPhone into a full colour and powerful bike computer, which mounts easily on a bike’s handlebars.
Offering a simple and secure solution for accessing the full functionality of the iPhone 5s/5, The Wahoo PROTKT Bike Mount includes one Bicycle Stem Mount and Bike Case, with sleek dimensions of 14cm x 7cm x 2cm and weighs only 4.4 ounces. The mount operates with a simple quarter-turn twist that locks the PROTKT into place with a confident click. The PROTKT works with all types of bikes including road, mountain and hybrid bikes. The case also features a headphone port and full access to buttons for full phone functionality. Tested in the most extreme conditions, the PROTKT will keep the iPhone safe through the sweat, the wet, the dirt and the dust, so cyclists can focus on their ride.
The PROTKT Run
Many fitness enthusiasts prefer to run with their iPhone in hand to easily access app information and/or music and GPS. The PROTKT Run is an iPhone 5/5s case that is sleek, slim, weatherproof, sweatproof and shockproof, providing maximum protection while securely strapping the device to the jogger’s hand.
The PROTKT Run’s IPX5 waterproof certification and rugged shock resistant construction, ensures that the iPhone is ready for an intense workout whatever the weather, while the comfortable, neoprene hand band makes it easy to view fitness data and interact with fitness apps, music, or the phone during a run.
Offering full functionality along with protection, the protective screen cover allows the user to access all of their phone’s functions, such as taking and making calls, listening to music, taking photographs and more.
Free Wahoo Fitness app
The PROTKT Bike Mount and PROTKT Run come bundled with the Wahoo Fitness App for cycling or running, transforming the iPhone into a powerful fitness tool, which users can combine with fitness sensors to wirelessly monitor all their vitals.
Additionally, users can pair their PROTKT’ed iPhone with the Wahoo Blue HR Heart Rate Strap to connect to their iPhone 5s/5 and receive accurate real-time heart rate data through the Wahoo Fitness App. In addition, users can attach the Wahoo Blue SC Speed and Cadence Sensor to track cycling speed, cadence and distance.
