SeaLife SportDiver Ultra Smartphone Housing

Posted in:

The SeaLife SportDiver Ultra is a compact and lightweight underwater housing designed for smartphones, enabling divers to capture photos and videos down to depths of 40 metres (130 feet). 

The housing is compatible with most Android models, including larger models such as the Samsung S Series Ultra and Google Pixel devices, as well as all iPhones from iPhone 8 through iPhone 15 Pro Max. It pairs seamlessly with the free SportDiver App, which is available on the App Store and the Play Store.”

Constructed from polycarbonate, stainless steel, aluminium, and optical-grade glass, the SportDiver Ultra combines durability with portability. It weighs less than 808 grams (1.78 pounds) and offers nearly neutral buoyancy underwater, depending on the smartphone model used. Its ergonomic design features a large shutter lever and rear control buttons, allowing for easy operation even with dive gloves.

Improve your underwater photography and videography with advanced camera settings, including zoom, exposure (EV), auto/manual focus, white balance, tint, lens selection, RAW+JPEG mode, and video stabilization (available on compatible phone models). Unlike other smartphone housing apps, the SportDiver App is free from in-app purchases or ads. It supports both current and previous OS versions and is updated to align with new OS releases.


The app's playback mode displays full-size photos and videos with a vertical thumbnail strip for easy navigation. All files are automatically saved to the phone's camera roll. The SportDiver Ultra connects wirelessly to your smartphone using Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) 5 technology. It offers ultra-low power consumption and is powered by two AAA batteries, lasting over 50 hours of continuous use.

The housing comes with a detachable underwater colour-correction filter for accurate colours. It also has seven 1/4-20 tripod mounts for attaching accessories such as SeaLife’s Sea Dragon underwater lights. Safety features include a robust holding spring, rubber grip tabs for securely placing the smartphone, and "Dual Leak Alarms" to warn divers of any waterproof seal issues.

To ensure clear vision, the SportDiver Ultra is equipped with an anti-fogging agent and has a TPE O-ring-sealed door with a sturdy cam-lock latch. Please note that certain settings may be limited depending on your phone's make and model. Users should regularly check for SportDiver app updates to access the newest features and ensure compatibility.
