The Waterproof case for the Osmo Pocket is now in stock, US$ 49.As we can see, it doesn't look like it was shown before. Covered by black opaque plastic, except for the part of the screen.
Here is the link to the store: https://store.dji.com/product/osmo-pocket-waterproof-case

(What it looks like before)


In the latest firmware, we can see there is a 'Waterproof Mode' for the New Waterproof case. If you turn the mode on, the Osmo pocket will fix it's angle while avoiding unwanted movements. Otherwise, you're going to take a black edge in other modes.


I will share some points, just for your information.

Cons:

1# After you put your Osmo Pocket into the Waterproof case, the little screen in below will not work anymore. You can only click the right side button, which convenient for you to switch the shooting mode. So you have to take a lot of pics or videos, because you can't check your work under water.

2# Cannot selfie. Means you can't see yourself through the little screen while you are using the waterproof mode.

3# You have to move your smartphone adapter out before you put your Osmo Pocket into the case. It is not a big deal, but I think it is not very convenient, and you might lost your little adapter.


Pros:

1# Supports water resistance at depths of up to 60 m, Which means we can take the Osmo Pocket into the pool or sea, and In ordinary diving. There is no need to worry about the deep-sea environment's pressure.

2# The anti-fog lens effectively prevents the case from fogging up. So we needn't worry about the fog caused by the temperature difference. (But we only have 3 Osmo Pocket Anti-Fog Inserts, and we don't know if we can recycle them, or we have to buy some new).

3# It's is very tiny(Only 110g) and comfortable to hold it. The ergonomic design enables users to work a long time without fatigue.

4# You can use the Waterproof case with some third party products.




Overall:
I think it is a good product. For someone who already has Osmo Pocket and wants to take photos or video underwater, you needn't worry about the pressure of the water.
The price is not high, you can get one if you want.

When you say ‘fix its angle  while avoiding unwanted movements ‘  do you mean there is limited gimbal movement / stabilisation?  Will there be any benefits to using it underwater as opposed to something like a GoPro or even the OA?  (I’ve got a GP Hero5 but would prefer the stabilisation that the OP in a waterproof case should offer)

Well, it means it only has one angle, will not move when you turn on the Waterproof mode, kind like the FPV mode.

Do agree with that, but quite not that convinient, you have to move the  smartphone adapter out before you put the OP into the case. You have a certain chance of losing your adapter.

"You have a certain chance of losing your adapter." - That's inherent with this design no matter what.  I know for a fact that I'm going to lose that gizmo at some point.

What do you think about trying to get it back out? You have to pretty much pull on the gimbal which can’t be good for it.

That's a point, but fortunately, its fuselage will reveal part of it above the case, so I can get it back out easily without hurt the gimbal.

1 - how do you put the antifoam insert ?
2- it is hard to pull off the Osmo pocket from the case. Is there any tip to do it easily ?
