The Great Outdoors Take Your iPhone for a Walk

When the iPhone was first released on 29 June 2007, it was heralded as a true game changer.

This was primarily because the iPhone and its cornucopia of different Apps and iPhone accessories allowed you to realise infinitely more value from your iPhone than was previously possible with standard mobile handset.

By installing Apps and buying accessories based on your own individual preferences and tastes, you could customise your iPhone however you so pleased. By allowing each individual iPhone user to customise their phone with an endless range of different Apps and accessories, they will be realising much more value because their iPhone can have the features that they want it to.

For most people, the iPhone has now become indispensable; this is especially true for the iPhone users that utilise the phone’s built-in GPS system. This allows users to use their phone in multiple, dynamic ways, such as finding local businesses, finding directions and updating your friends and family on your whereabouts.

One of the best uses of the iPhone’s built-in GPS system is to take it with you when you go out walking; especially if you make use of some of the fantastic walking Apps and accessories that are available to buy.

Instead of just going on an amble through the countryside on a Sunday afternoon, you can take your iPhone with you and have access to an endless source of information, including duration, distance, elevation, speed, pace, and calories burned; you can even see the route that you have walked on an interactive map. This information can then be shared on various social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, so your friends can be incredibly envious of your athletic prowess (or not so envious if you have just tracked your walk to the corner shop)!

In my opinion, one of the best walking apps available on the market is iMapMyWalk; this has all of the features mentioned above, as well as the ability to store all of your walking history and data on their easy-to-use website.

In terms of iPhone walking accessories, I never go walking without my Griffin Survivor iPhone Case and Belt Clip. This iPhone case is called ‘survivor’ for a valid reason; Griffin have manufactured it from a shatter-resistant polycarbonate frame, which for added ruggedness, is then coated in shock absorbing silicone.

The case also comes in handy when having to deal with the unpredictability of the British weather; the Survivor iPhone case comes with a built-in screen protector, which protects your screen from elements.  As an added bonus, the Survivor case comes with a heavy-duty detachable clip, which can be secured to your rucksack or your belt; much better for tracking your route than having to fish through your pockets every 5 minutes!

Seeing as I am undeniably image conscious, one of the best things I love about taking my iPhone out when I go walking is that my Survivor iPhone Case matches perfectly with my Hunter Wellies.

Both my iPhone case and my wellies come in a sleek matte black finish, which means that I look as effortlessly cool in the countryside as I do on the high street.

If you would like to mimic my rural-aesthetic, by matching your iPhone case to your walking attire, I got both my iPhone case and my Hunter Wellies from Uttings Outdoor. They have an extensive range of Hunter Wellies in a myriad of different colours and various other outdoor clothing and technology, meaning you are sure to find everything you need for your next outdoor adventure!
