Hands-on Reviews / Water Resistance Update
We have also heard loud and clear your questions regarding the level of water resistance of the Leikr device.
Leikr was designed from the beginning to be used in the water. From a technical standpoint we believe our current performance to be at a level of IPX-6 (thus the statement of water resistant). Our goal for this product is to be capable of IPX-8 and are working diligently towards that goal. The main area of focus for us to obtain this level is the gluing process of the front window and back plate. There is a video below which shows our automated robot going thru this process. As we continue to refine this we will begin to see additional improvements in water resistance so that users can feel comfortable using their Leikr in extreme conditions both on land and in water.
