Supplier of mobile device protection introduces plan designed for wireless accessories and wearable technology.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (August 23, 2016)  Fortegra, a Tiptree Financial Inc. company (NASDAQ:TIPT), today unveiled a new addition to its ProtectCELL mobile lineup, a plan created expressly to protect wireless accessories and wearable technology. Designed to help consumers safeguard their entire mobile experience, these plans meet the demands of the growing accessory market.

Standard coverage will include mechanical failure or breakdown, as well as physical or liquid damage. However, a loss/theft component is not included. Pricing is separate for accessories and wearables, with lower tiers for items under $40, and a top tier that reaches $1100 for high-end products. The plans will include Fortegra’s ‘No Hassle’ claims process, zero deductibles, and a replacement accessory shipped directly to the customer.  

The new plans will be available for a variety of wireless accessories including: headphones, Bluetooth® speakers and headsets, power accessories, smartphone lenses, and more. The wearables category includes both smartwatches and fitness bands.

“High-end accessories have quickly grown to be an integral part of consumers’ day-to-day activities,” said Fortegra Vice President of Retail Sales Kevin Cundiff. “Much like smartphones and tablets were hot sellers, accessories are now allowing wireless retailers to deliver the whole experience. Adding ProtectCELL Accessory is a logical next step for better supporting the needs of our partners’ customers.”

Fortegra will be signing up wireless retailers for ProtectCELL Accessory beginning at CTIA 2016 in Las Vegas. Retailers interested in adding ProtectCELL Accessory to their protection lineup can request a meeting here. Plans will be available at authorized retail locations by the end of September.
