The Kraken Universal Smart Housing has an adjustable shim system allowing you to fit most popular smart phones on the market into it. Kraken also have another great feature built in, a vacuum port system! No longer worry about if your seal is safe. Simply give a couple pulls on the vacuum pump (included) and the housing will let you know that it has a vacuum and is safe to dive. Kraken has a wide-angle, and macro lens available too. Free app for both Android and IOS smartphones available to download. Housing is made of anodised aluminium.
There are two versions of the housing, one includes a temperature and depth sensor, the other does not. THIS HOUSING DOES NOT INCLUDE THE SENSORS.
Maximum phone dimensions are 158 mm in height, 83mm in width, and 9 mm in thickness. The phone should have a flat back, curved back phones will not sit in the housing properly. If your phone is the above dimensions or less you should have no problem using the housing.
Some people have difficulty understanding this. To find your phones dimensions try looking at
www.gsmarena.com, if the dimensions are less than the ones provided above your phone should work fine in the Kraken housing.
The housing will fit Apple iPhone 5/6/7/8/X including the 6+/7+/8+/X, they are slightly over the maximum dimensions but will still fit. THE IPHONE X WILL FIT.
The housing will fit most flagship Android smartphones including Galaxy S8/S9, LG G6, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2. Just check the dimensions, if it's within those maximum dimensions, it will work!

Please everyone, we do not have the ability to test every phone on the market, look up your phones dimensions, if they are less than the maximum dimensions stated above your phone will work. If your phone is greater than the maximum dimensions the phone will not fit in the case.

We are proud to announce the Kraken housing now supports the Dive+ app. With built in colour correction, dive computer, compass, and auto dive log feature (KRH01) it is a game changer! Full manual camera control supported for iOS currently, and about another 30 days for Android. You can find the app on the playstore, or app store, or visit
The original Kraken app is still functioning and can be found in the app store, or to download for Android at the button below. All further development will happen on the Dive+ app though.
PLEASE NOTE, DO NOT CONNECT TO THE HOUSING FROM YOUR BLUETOOTH MENU. YOU MUST LET THE APP DO THE CONNECTION. If you connect through your Bluetooth menu, you will not see the housing in the app. If you have connected through the Bluetooth menu simply forget the 'Kraken' housing.
Android users — Please try out our latest app option. Download 'Kraken Housing Camera' in the Playstore store or from this link.
To use it simply go in to the settings, enable the remote control, and then select your housing from the available remotes. This was adapted from Open Camera, and was done by one of our users, thanks Edouard.
