June. The highly anticipated month that ushers in warmth and signals that summer is just about here. It’s a time of renewed energy and a time for planning outdoor activities we’ve spent months thinking about. Activities like picnics at the park. Backyard barbeques. Lazy days at the beach. And if you’re really ambitious, daily runs in the neighborhood or on a quiet trail.
Whatever your warm weather plans are, Verizon has a great tech selection to help you make the most of your favorite activities. Like the Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® Speaker II and the Fitbit Blaze™ Smart Fitness Watch. Of course, they’re great indoors, too. But used outdoors, they really enhance your summer adventures.
Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II
You might not expect a speaker that fits in the palm of your hand to deliver music with the clarity, fullness and depth that the SoundLink Mini Bluetooth II does. But remember…this is a Bose. Outdoor music from a speaker so small never sounded so good.
Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, SoundLink Mini II slips easily into a small bag, backpack or even a picnic basket…so now it’s easy to just grab and take renowned Bose sound on all your outdoor adventures. The days may be getting longer, but they’re no match for the SoundLink Mini II. The battery provides up to 10 hours* of unplugged music and can be charged conveniently from most USB power sources.
And there’s no need to interrupt your lounging or gardening to take a phone call. The SoundLink Mini II has a built-in speakerphone, so you can take calls out loud without having to grab your connected smartphone.
The Bose SoundLink Mini II connects simultaneously to two Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as your nearby smartphone and tablet (up to a 33-foot wireless range). And, voice prompts even talk you through Bluetooth pairing, making the connection process exceptionally easy. A built-in multi-function button enables easy control of your calls and music.
The SoundLink Mini II is up to the challenges of an outdoor play day. Because it’s engineered with a solid, anodized aluminum housing and a skid-proof rubber bottom, the Mini II can stand up to most active picnic tables.
Fitbit Blaze™ Smart Fitness Watch
What fitness fanatic can resist taking it outdoors when the warm weather approaches? It’s so much more enjoyable to trade in the treadmill and the stationary bike for a jog in the park or ride on your favorite trail. And the Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch helps you make the most of your summertime workouts.
The Blaze is so much more than just an extremely good-looking, technologically advanced smartwatch.
Fitness Blaze features PurePulse™ continuous heart-rate tracking, which not only monitors your pulse, but also supplies you with simplified heart rate zones to help you determine your workout intensity. You can even watch customized video workouts right on the watch’s display. Blaze’s connected GPS helps you make the most of your run. Wirelessly link this fitness watch to your nearby compatible smartphone to map your running route and get real-time stats like pace, distance and speed. And get this…your stats are wirelessly synced to your dashboard and converted to easy-to-read graphs and charts for review later.
Fitbit Blaze is also water-resistant, so don’t worry about getting caught in a little rain shower.**
You’ll want to consider keeping Fitbit Blaze on your wrist after your summer workout, too. This sophisticated smartwatch is designed for all-day wear and also helps you maximize virtually every aspect of your day and night. Wear the smartwatch all day for continuous tracking of distance walked, calories burned, floors climbed and active minutes. Blaze automatically tracks your sleep patterns. And you’ll see call, text and calendar notifications from your nearby smartphone on the Blaze display. Fitbit Blaze wirelessly syncs to more than 200 compatible devices (syncing range up to 20 feet).
Consider also switching things up with one or more of the interchangeable bands and frames specially made for Fitness Blaze (leather, metal or classic, each sold separately).
The Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch is the perfect outdoor, summertime workout accessory, but here’s a little secret…it’s just as effective in the gym all year long.
