Hammerhead’s “droplet rejection technology” keeps user interactions accurate, even in wet conditions.

The Hammerhead Karoo 2 just may be future-proof, operating on a special version of the Android that allows for customization and updates.

The USB-C fast-charging should power up the battery from 0 percent to 30 percent charge in just thirty minutes.

A refundable $99 deposit on the $399 Hammerhead Karoo 2 ensures delivery in late-October; first-come, first-served, depending on availability.
