Summer is finally upon us, and Verizon has outstanding tech ideas to help you make the most of your warm-weather activities. From smart fitness watches that help you maximize your summer workouts, to simple home security for protection while you’re away, to wireless outdoor audio, to smartphone protection in the great outdoors, Verizon has you covered.
Fitbit Blaze™ Smart Fitness Watch
Summer is the time to trade in the treadmill and the stationary bike for running in the park or riding on your favorite trail. And the Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch helps you make the most of your warm-weather workouts. Fitness Blaze features PurePulse™ continuous heart-rate tracking, which monitors your pulse and supplies you with simplified heart rate zones to help you determine your workout intensity. Blaze’s connected GPS wirelessly links to your nearby compatible smartphone* to map your running route and provide real-time stats, which are wirelessly synced to your dashboard for review later. The water-resistant** Fitbit Blaze wirelessly syncs to more than 200 compatible devices.
Wear Blaze 24 hours a day for continuous tracking of distance walked, calories burned, floors climbed, active minutes and sleep patterns. See call, text and calendar notifications from your nearby smartphone on the Blaze display.
Canary all-in-one home security system
Summer is a time for fun, but because you’ll be spending more time out of the house, it’s also a time to think about home security. Canary is a complete home protection system packed into a single device. It's built to learn and adapt to your home over time. Should it detect something out of the ordinary in your house or apartment, Canary sends intelligent notifications with HD video and audio directly to your smartphone. Canary features a 90+ dB siren, motion-activated recording, auto-arm/disarm, and automatic connection to your local authorities.
With no contracts or required monthly fees and free cloud storage of recent events,*** Canary works right out of the box. Set-up takes minutes. Download the free iPhone or Android app, put Canary on a shelf or table in a central area of your home, plug it in, connect to the Internet, and you're ready to go.

JBL Flip 3 Bluetooth® Splashproof Speaker – Black
Your outdoor adventures are almost certain to involve water at some point this summer. Whether that water comes from a pool or a spilled drink, you’ll need a portable, wireless Bluetooth speaker that not only sounds great but is also splashproof. That’s where the JBL Flip 3 Bluetooth Speaker comes in. The Flip 3 boasts an IPX5 splashproof rating,+++ so it handily withstands the expected occasional summer splatter.
The 3,000 mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery delivers up to 10 hours† of continuous, high-quality, JBL stereo sound to help keep the party going long after the sun goes down. Flip 3 also wirelessly connects with up to three smartphones or tablets at once, so everyone can take turns playing music from their own Bluetooth-enabled devices. Wirelessly link multiple JBL Connect-enabled speakers together to amplify the listening experience.
Flip 3 even has an on-board speakerphone with an echo and noise-canceling microphone so you can take clear, hands-free calls right from the speaker without having to take time away from your summer fun.
LifeProof FRĒ Power Case for iPhone 6
Summer is also a time of extreme excursions. Give your iPhone 6 the power and protection it needs to handle those intense outings with the LifeProof FRĒ Power case. This amped-up case, which features an integrated 2,600 mAh battery for 2x battery life, gives your iPhone substantial power even if an outlet is nowhere in sight.
Protect your iPhone 6 with the four "proofs":††
1. Waterproof (fully submersible to 6.6 feet for one hour); 2. Dirt-proof (totally sealed from dirt, dust and sand); 3. Snow-proof (completely closed to snow and ice); 4. Shock-proof (endures drops up to four feet).
Rapid Recharge quickly refuels the internal battery so it's ready for the next adventure. Auto-Stop Charging stops the charging process once your phone reaches 100 percent, preserving power for later.
