LifeProof for the s5 is out. Why don't you give that a try.

One hour and two meters is far from diving experience.

I guess these guys are coming up with a real solution for your (our) request:

WatershotŪ Smartphone Housings
I hope it comes with a led light because the one on the galaxy 5 is really poor IMHO

no clue about the other products they have, maybe the WP-C1 or c2 could work ??
I've used a similar types of case on my S5. However, it is really difficult to take pictures underwater using the case, as the touch sensitivity under water is practically zero. Above water, no problems, but underwater it just doesn't work well.

I don't know if the Dicapac is different, but it looks about the same as the case I had.

On edit: Just realized, the Verizon S5 does have an option to use the volume key to take a picture. Haven't tried that option yet, but I image that would be the solution to underwater pictures.

ultraproof pouch or frieq pouch can both do the work. Search on amazon, they all have pretty good reviews.
I really don't think it is good idea to use waterproof case on daily basis, hence those cheap waterproof pouches will work pretty well when you really need them!
