Can Your Phone Stand Up to the Challenge of Oyster_The Race?
Getting in shape for Oyster the Race? We hope your smartphone is getting in shape too. Oyster is no ordinary race. In fact, “it dares you to combine ATHLETICISM + INTELLIGENCE,” and smartphones are encouraged (not that we doubt your intelligence, we’re just sayin’…).
Upgrade, baby. This option isn’t for everyone, especially if the Oyster is the most rugged thing you do all year. But, for those of you who live on the edge of a cliff, or on the white water, regularly, you now have another reason to upgrade. Some of the top contenders based on the map app capabilities and voice commands are:
Case it. Whether or not you upgrade, you should definitely invest in a protective case. Our favorite case manufacturer is Otterbox. Firstly, Otterbox cases are made in Fort Collins, CO (shout-out to the Denver Oyster peeps!). Most are both drop- and waterproof. But other cases work too. Just make sure you look for features like:
- Polycarbonate/gorilla glass
- A good fit
- All-angle protection
May the best smartphone, er, we mean team, win!
