A majority of phones now are waterproof or water resistant. That doesn’t do you much good if your phone is sitting at the bottom of the lake or river.
Don't be afraid to use your phone on the water again. The Phone Hawk is placed between your phone and the back of your phone case to securely tether your phone. Our Phone Hawk is tethered with a small tool leash to give you enough stretch to use your phone, but to keep it nearby if you accidentally drop it.
