iSkin pulse™ Sports+ Adds Function to iPhone 3G/3GS During Physical Activity

17 Aug 2010

Featuring Microban® protection and a unique hand band that stretches to accommodate your hand giving the ability to use seamlessly with workout apps


Created for the developers of PocketCPR® to produce a case that would help the users of its PocketCPR training iPhone application

TORONTO, Canada – August 17, 2010 — iSkin announces today the release of the iSkin pulse™ Sports+ for iPhone 3G/3GS.  A new concept in protection and function, iSkin has added the benefit of an integrated hand band to the iPhone, designed to let your hands remain free while holding your iPhone during physical activity.  The pulse is the perfect companion for a number of iPhone workout apps and the PocketCPR® application for iPhone.

The pulse™ Sports+ features a dual layer design from two silicone layers that combine for full iPhone protection.  The inner layer serves as the basic protective layer and the outer portion reinforces and doubles as a hand band.  When blended together, it creates a durable scratch, shock and impact protective case for your iPhone.

Most notably is the pulse™ Sports+ unique hand band, which is incorporated into the design of the case, giving it its color and functionality.  The band stretches to accommodate your hand and securely connects you to the iPhone without slipping.  The hand band snaps flush on the surface when not being used, allowing the pulse to stay on the phone at all times.

Additionally, the pulse features embedded Microban® antimicrobial product protection (exclusive to iSkin’s iPhone, iPod, BlackBerry and ProTouch products) that works to inhibit the growth of fungus and bacteria that can cause stains and odor on the product. Volume, power and home buttons are protected from sweaty hands, while the integrated port cover blocks impurities from entering the charging port and causing damage.

There are numerous ways to take advantage of the pulse’s unique hand band feature: riding a bike, running, walking, rollerblading and generally working out.  However, aside from fitness apps, the pulse makes a perfect companion for the PocketCPR iPhone app.  iSkin has teamed up with the developers of PocketCPR to create a case that would help the users of the app train for CPR properly.

By using the pulse and the innovative PocketCPR app, you can effectively be self-trained to perform accurate CPR.  The app provides real-time feedback and instruction on CPR by actively utilizing the accelerometer built into the iPhone. It measures the actual rate and depth of your compressions and lets you know if you need to push faster or slower and whether you should push harder or softer. With the pulse strapped to your top hand while doing the compressions, you can easily view the onscreen prompts, making it the perfect accessory to assist you just when every second counts.

iSkin pulse Sports+ will be available for $29.99 MSRP at iSkin.com. PocketCPR is available from the Apple iTunes store for $3.99.  For additional information on this or other iSkin products, contact PR representative Jessica Darrican at Jessica@maxborgesagency.com or 305-576-1171 x.16.
