10 Fun Tech Gadgets For A Hot Summer
Your summer outing or vacation might be a bit different this year, with COVID-19 remaining a major concern. Experts say that outdoor activities are generally safer, however–and the best summer fun is always about getting outdoors, anyway. To help get you equipped, we’ve assembled a list of some of the top summer gadgets for hitting the beach, hiking, camping, grilling and more in 2020. Our list includes both well-known products–such as Apple’s AirPods Pro and Amazon’s Fire HD 8 Kids Edition–along with some top summer-ready gadgets you might not know about yet.
For starters: We’re fairly certain your summer could get a boost from Bose Frames. As a pair of “audio sunglasses,” the Bose Frames remove the need for grabbing both your shades and your headphones every time you head outside. The sunglasses feature built-in speakers for “immersive” sound, according to Bose, along with Bluetooth connectivity. Plus, there’s even a microphone for taking calls. The Bose Frames come in two classic styles, and now offer an option for prescription lenses, as well.
Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition (2020 model)
While it may be uncertain just how much family traveling you’ll be doing this summer, a kid-friendly tablet should be a welcome addition wherever the family ends up. And in fact, an updated new model of Amazon’s Fire HD 8 Kids Edition will be available on June 3. The tablet features an 8-inch HD display, a “kid-proof” case, an adjustable stand and up to 12 hours of battery life. The tablet also includes 32 GB of built-in storage and supports up to 1 TB of optional microSD storage for downloading content. Additionally, the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition comes with a free one-year subscription to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, which offers more than 20,000 titles including games, apps, videos and books.
