Put Some Splash into Your Summer

Water-readying your devices for summer fun.

Swimsuit? Check. Sunglasses and hat? Check, check. Towel? Check. Waterproof cell phone case? Check.

With Memorial Day here, it’s officially water sports season. Whether you head to the beach, the lake or to a backyard pool, water-ready and wireless devices are essential to summer fun.

Moisture can take a toll on a wireless device if you’re not careful. Waterproofing your smartphone with a protective case, like the Incipio ATLAS or the LIFEPROOF Waterproof Case, will help protect it from unexpected splashes or sun showers. Yurbuds Inspire Sport Earphones are sweat and water resistant so you can take a call poolside. 

The Jawbone BIG JAMBOX Bluetooth Speaker lets you play your music from your mobile device no matter if you’re sitting at the pool, taking a boat ride or fishing off a pier. Tablets are another beach bag necessity. You can download a best seller to catch up on your summer reading list or keep the kids entertained during downtime. Plus, if your dog is joining you at the beach, enjoy peace of mind thanks to the Tagg Pet Tracker. The GPS-enabled device is water resistant and built to withstand an occasional swim to retrieve a Frisbee thrown into the ocean.

Apps like the Surfline Surf Report and Boating Weather will help you plan the best time to hit the water. And if you are California dreamin’ but can’t make it to the shore this summer, download tropical-themed live wallpaper like My Beach HD and bring the waves to your device.

Kick back, relax and enjoy the sun without the worry
