Top water-resistant gear that you can bring to the pool

Whether it’s speakers, smartphones or waterproof cases, Verizon is your destination for summertime tech

When you hear the phrase “bring these to the pool” you probably think about everything except tech. Thanks to water-resistant technology though, you don’t need to worry or fear the pool anymore.

I’m telling you to go ahead, bring any of the tech listed below to the pool. They’re all summer-ready and found at Verizon.

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge: These smartphones have an IP68 rating, meaning they’re water resistant in up to five feet of water for up to 30 minutes. Send a Snapchat from underwater if you want to.

Don’t have an S7? For a limited time, you can trade in your old phone and get up to $300*. Simply activate a new line, upgrade on your current line or switch to Verizon, and purchase a new smartphone on device payment.

LifeProof FRE Waterproof Cases: These cases can make a smartphone fully submersible in up to six and a half feet of water for one hour. Just because your current phone doesn’t have a waterproof feature doesn’t mean you can’t make it waterproof. LifeProof FRE cases are available for popular smartphones including Droid Turbo 2, Samsung Galaxy S7, iPhone 6s, LG G5 and more.

As a bonus, LifeProof FRE cases purchased from Verizon are protected by the LifeProof Total Water Protection program, which provides one-year protection against accidental water damage (splashes, spills, dunks and plunges).

JBL Clip 2: This speaker is IPX7-rated so it can be immersed in up to one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. The built-in carabineer lets you hook the speaker onto just about anything. Hook it onto a floating lounge chair and relax to your favorite tunes.

UE Speakers: The UE lineup at Verizon includes 3 IPX7-rated speakers: UE ROLL 2BOOM 2 and MEGABOOM. All three are waterproof in up to three feet for up to 30 minutes and they are all available in a variety of colorful schemes, so you can match a speaker to your lifestyle and playlist.

For a limited time, save 20% on any UE speaker when purchased with a smartphone or tablet at Verizon.
