LAND ROVER EX­PLORE OUT­DOOR PHONE

Men's Health (South Africa) - - GEAR -

It's sleek enough to take out to din­ner, but tough enough to hang on your back­pack – lit­er­ally (it comes with a cara­biner). We put it through its paces, tak­ing it quad­bik­ing and zi­plin­ing in Her­manus; plus we dropped it in salt wa­ter while shark-cage div­ing in Gans­baai. It gave us long bat­tery life (2 days), dou­bled thanks to the mag­netic bat­tery pack. There was no re­ly­ing on cell­phone tow­ers to pin­point our lo­ca­tion, as it boasts the same GPS an­tenna used by Garmin. We also took some de­cent footage along the way (the 16MP cam­era can be used with gloves when the screen's wet). The Ex­plore is wa­ter­proof, drop-proof (IP 68 rat­ing), and when dawn hits, the Night red fil­ter mode re­duces screen glare. It also sur­vives -30 to +60 de­gree tem­pra­tures. It's tough. Just like you, right? R13 500, agentzero.co.za
