Ever wanted to take your Google Pixel or Pixel XL in the pool or drop it a couple of metres? If the answer is yes, or you’re generally just a klutz, the LifeProof FRĒ cases are for you -and they’re now available in Australia.

Selling for $99.95 for the Pixel and $124.95 for the Pixel XL,both in an ‘Asphalt Black’ colour, the cases are ruggedised and will protect your case from drops as well as dirt, snow and water. The cases are waterproof up to 2 metres and drop proof to 2 metres as well.

The cases also come with a built-in screen protector to keep scratches off your display.

Bonnie Soon, LifeProof General Manager for APAC said of the cases:

With the new Pixel, Google has created a smartphone that has raised the bar delivering a truly incredible experience for its fans. With its brilliant camera and unlimited storage for photos and videos, Google Pixel users want to be able to capture every moment no matter when or where they happen. And with the LifeProof FRĒ they can have on the go protection.

Lifeproof are selling the FRĒ case for the Pixel and Pixel XL through their website where you’ll pay around US$20 to have them delivered to Australia. There’s no Australian option on their e-commerce site just yet, but Lifeproof expects to have a dedicated Australian website up soon.

If you’re not totally on board with ordering from the US you can check out local options at ‘select retailers’ which includes JB Hi-Fi who are selling the cases on their website.
