Rugged phone cases with extra layers of protection.
Our phones go with us to the gym, softball and soccer fields, volleyball and basketball courts, on outdoor adventures and more. And even if you’re one of the few whose phone hasn’t suffered a scratched display or worse during a sporting activity, it’s likely that you’ve had some close calls, or at the very least have been concerned about potential damage.
Verizon has your back with a selection of protective phone cases engineered specially for the sports enthusiast. Here are a couple of examples:
OtterBox® Defender Series® Case for Pixel, Phone by Google.
The OtterBox Defender Series Case for Pixel defends your phone against serious drops, scrapes, bumps and dirt with three ultra-tough layers of protection. A built-in screen protector helps guard your Pixel display against scratches and smudges. And an included holster gives you the quick draw on calls, while providing added protection.

Your workout headphones need to be special, too.
When you’re out for a run or trying to beat yesterday’s treadmill time, the last things you want to worry about are ear buds falling out, wires getting in your way, battery life and moisture damage. Bose SoundSport Pulse wireless headphones are just as special as your needs. And get this: they monitor your heart rate, too.
SoundSport Pulse delivers heart-pounding Bose audio and the freedom to move as rigorously as you'd like. No wires get in your way. The earbuds stay secure and comfortable, and they're made to be sweat and weather resistant. The music can last as long as your workout, with a battery life of up to five hours.‡ And, of course, SoundSport Wireless has an inline mic and remote to make taking calls and controlling your music a breeze. A unique in-ear sensor provides real-time heart-rate readings when used with the Bose Connect app. And Pulse is compatible with a host of popular fitness apps.
*Like all heart rate monitoring technologies, accuracy is affected by physiology, location of device and different movements.
†Based on independent testing.
‡Battery power consumption depends on factors such as network configuration, carrier network and signal strength.
