Ecoxbt waterproof Bluetooth speaker by Ecoxgear
$94.91 at Amazon.com
Itíll be beach weather before you know it, and thatís the ideal environment for this rugged rechargeable Bluetooth speaker.
Sheathed in dense black plastic, the Ecoxbt is designed to tolerate sand and seawater. The manufacturer warns that itís not designed to be submerged. But itís buoyant, so if you drop it into Boston Harbor, itíll stay afloat. It takes a few seconds to sync it up with any Bluetooth-equipped phone or laptop. And with a built-in microphone, the Ecoxbt doubles as a speakerphone.
Mind you, the speakers are nothing to write home about. The sound is muddy and undistinguished. But the Ecoxbtís compact size and tough construction may still appeal to devotees of water sports.
