   -   August 26, 2019

Do you think twice about taking your mobile phone with you every time you go on an excursion? Do you never know where to put it to keep it out of harm’s way? Have you broken several before in the past? Do you never have enough battery life and are always worried it will get wet when it rains? Here are 6 good reasons to choose a smartphone designed by CROSSCALL, the leading company for outdoor MOBILE technology based in Aix-en-Provence, France.



All CROSSCALL phones have been designed to withstand impacts and resist the most challenging sports terrains! Thanks to their structure and Gorilla™ Glass, CROSSCALL smartphones are highly impact- and drop-resistant. They are also designed to cope with extreme temperatures, especially sudden temperature changes.



When you’re out in the rain, you no longer need to bring along a bag or waterproof cover for your phone. CROSSCALL smartphones comply with IP67 or 68 standards, which means they are completely waterproof during temporary or extended immersion in both fresh and salt water, depending on the model. Rain and storms will no longer be an issue.  You can even capture your most precious memories of being in the water since our smartphones also enable you to take photos and create videos under water.

On your long excursions, you probably use tracking apps to see the distance you’ve covered. CROSSCALL smartphones have a long battery life, meaning they can easily track your route throughout the day.

For example, the TREKKER-X4, can track you for up to 32 hrs in 4G mode, which is perfect for ultra-trail lovers. Our battery life, combined with our accurate GPS systems, give you ideal geolocation whatever your activity

Since safety should be a priority, your phone is also your best ally in the event of a problem. Over and above their long battery life, which means people can contact you for longer, our smartphones have a programmable button, which you can press to send a preset message with your GPS location to your chosen contact person. The X-SENSOR app also enables you to find out your GPS coordinates with a single click, which is ideal for informing rescue teams of your location.
