UK based healthy living brand desirablebody.co.uk have released the ToneFone -- the world’s healthiest iPhone case. Weighing in at 1 or 1.5kg, the case is designed to turn your iPhone in to a dumbbell you can carry around and use.
The case was initially launched at the beginning of this month -- with just 50 produced as an experiment. After selling out within 72 hours, backorders are now being taken here for delivery in April.
“We can all agree spending too much time on your phone’s not good for you. We wanted to change that” said Matt Morgan, MD of desirablebody.co.uk. “What makes the ToneFone special is the ability it gives you to workout wherever you are. It’s that freedom, we think, that’s meant the ToneFone’s been a surprise hit”.
It’s simple: you get a text you get fitter, your mum calls you, you get fitter, you order a takeaway - you're still getting fitter. You can take it with you anywhere and every time you pick your phone up you’ll be working out.
The case is primarily constructed from steel, which is then wrapped in a protective layer of rubber. The heavier version replaces steal with lead to increase overall weight to 1.5kg. It’s on sale in white for £22.90 and £25.40 for the heavier version. Gold and space grey models are due to launch in June this year. The ToneFone is probably also the heaviest iPhone 5s case ever to be designed.
