Today ADATA announced the launch of their latest external hard drives, which will join their current line of hard drives with the ADATA HD710 and the ADATA HD650.

Both of these new drives feature a design that has a rugged purpose, it exceeds IP68 dust and waterproofing ratings according to ADATA and has successfully completed Military-grade shock resistance tests, meaning that it should be a pretty great drive for on-the-go activities.

ADATA says that it is capable of withstanding up to 60-minutes worth of submersion in up to 2 meters of water, along with being able to survive shocks and impacts that are often associated with drops from up to 1.5 meters, passing the MIL-STD 810G 516.6 requirements.

The HD710 Pro is the bigger and better version, featuring a custom triple-layered protective build and a G-Shock sensor that will stop and restart the hard drive’s activity if it detects a shock or vibration to prevent data corruption.

The drive also features a USB port cover for keeping the wet out and you can pick it up in red, yellow, or blue with 1TB/2TB capacities or in black with a 3TB/4TB capacity.

The new HD650 is an updated version of the previous one that includes a new light blue colour scheme and up to a 4TB capacity.
