Top waterproof and water-resistant summer accessories
When you think of summer, you may think of relaxing by the pool, having a picnic on the beach or wading through the surf to cool off. Then there are those who opt for a day of fishing out on the lake or a relaxing river tubing trip. Whatever your preference, there's no reason to leave your favorite devices behind when you venture out in the summer for fear of the water, sand and other elements taking their toll.
Waterproof, dustproof, shockproof-summer proof. Products today are more "proofed" than ever before thanks to the advanced technology developed and made available by some of the best brands in the business. So it's safer to bring them along on this season's adventures. That means you can still take all the pictures you want, set up your music for the perfect summer soundtrack, stay in touch with friends and even tackle that summer reading list you've been looking forward to for months.
Here are the top 5 waterproof and water-resistant accessories perfect to bring along for summer fun.

A 1.08-inch touchscreen display gives you a clear view of what you're recording or reviewing. And a universal port is included to easily connect to your smartphone as well as a host of other accessories.

3. Charging case - LifeProof.
When you want the ultimate protection for your phone or tablet, consider LifeProof cases: LifeProof FRE, LifeProof nüüd and now the LifeProof FRE Power.

That means you can climb aboard that speed boat and take pics without worry when your phone is protected by a LifeProof case.
