Tough enough for trail riding, light enough for rock climbing
Whether you’re planning an all-day trail ride or off for a day of bouldering, DuraSport 5G was designed for the active lifestyle. Kyocera’s second 5G rugged device for the Verizon 5G UW Network, DuraSport’s durable, lightweight design (6.5 ounces/185 grams) is ideal, not only for use on the job, but also for outdoor adventures or the daily adventure of parenting. Sporting an expansive 6.1-inch Gorilla® Glass 6 scratch-resistant display, DuraSport is waterproof to a depth of 6.5 feet for up to 30 minutes (IPX5/IPX8*), dustproof (IP6X*), and MIL-STD-810H tested to withstand drops of up to 5 feet onto concrete, while handling extreme temperatures, salt fog, solar radiation, shock, vibration and more – making it tough enough for work or play. Featuring a 4500mAh lithium polymer battery, DuraSport will carry you through a full day of wakesurfing on the lake or working in the elements without worrying about running out of power1. A programmable key on the side of DuraSport allows customization to fit your needs – whether it’s instant access to a frequently-used app, one-touch connection to Google Assistant or hundreds of contacts through PTT** (Push-To-Talk). You can play music, ask for a translation, check in with the office, or instantly access your favorite apps, all with the press of a button.
Track your fitness & adventures
DuraSport 5G has fitness tracking built in with ANT+ support. Simply download and pair compatible apps and devices, such as heart rate monitors (HRM), power meters, and cadence sensors to replace stand-alone fitness trackers. You’ll capture detailed real-time performance directly on your smartphone, including speed, distance traveled, heart rate and more. With a touchscreen designed to work when wet or while wearing gloves, this device keeps working through even the sweatiest workout sessions.
Mount DuraSport 5G on your bike and launch Bike Mode with the ANT+ technology to display data such as heart rate, cadence, and power for an even more detailed picture of your adventures. The screen locks when recording to prevent accidental touches and disruptions.
You call the shots — more pixels, storage
With DuraSport, you can immerse yourself in vibrant, true-to-life colors even after dark. Check out detailed action photos on the trail, follow tutorials on the job, or stream your favorite movies and shows. Dual rear cameras (48MP standard + 16MP ultra-wide angle) feature
Multi-camera mode enables both the front and rear camera to capture video and photos simultaneously to fully record your adrenaline-fueled adventures and your reaction to your kids’ craziest moments for social media or family sharing. This simultaneous use of front and rear cameras for picture-in-picture content also streamlines hands-on tutorials, turning DuraSport into a multimedia training tool, or a powerful companion for bloggers on-the-go. Capture underwater pics and videos with Underwater
The Video Bites feature helps even the most novice videographers put together short action videos quickly and easily on the fly -- adjust video size, frame rate, and add filters directly on the device. By simply using the record/pause button or programmable key, you can create a movie in multiple parts and message or post it using 5G’s blazing fast speeds.
“DuraSport 5G packs in a lot of value -- our industry-leading rugged reliability plus 5G performance in a sleek, lightweight device appeals to businesses and adventurers who know the Kyocera brand, as well as busy parents and other consumers who need durability in a slim package,” said
