Water resistance is one of the best new features Apple added to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus last year, but it’s not necessarily worth spending $649+ just to upgrade for water resistance. Instead, you can spend a small fraction of that and get a waterproof case. But what do you picture when you think of waterproof smartphone cases? Those big ugly transparent sacks with the plastic clamp on top, right? Well guess what: there’s a much better option out there. Check out the TETHYS Ultra Series iPhone 6/6S Waterproof Case, which is thinner than some regular cases and on sale for under $20 on Amazon.

Here are the key details from the product page:
