When you want to enjoy the sparkling pool and spacious sundeck at The Montrose Apartments in Chicago, you shouldn’t be forced to leave your phone, portable speaker, and e-reader back at your apartment. These gadgets make spending time by the pool more enjoyable with music, reading and the chance to take pictures of your friends splashing around in the water. To help you enjoy the benefits of having your tech with you at the pool, follow these tips to make sure they stay dry.
SET UP A SPOT AWAY FROM THE WATER
If you’re out on the sundeck just to soak up a few rays, park your chair as far away from the pool as possible. There, you can sunbathe with your ear buds in and tablet out without too much fear of water damage.
If you are going to go into the pool, you should still pick an area further away from the pool. This will keep your tech dry just in case others splash on it while they are in the pool.
ENCASE YOUR PHONE
Keeping your distance isn’t always good enough. That’s where cases come in handy. A waterproof smartphone case ensures a few rambunctious splashes won’t ruin your device. In fact, some manufacturers are so confident they say you take underwater pictures with your phone as long as the case is properly installed. These cases are also available for your tablets or iPads.
ENCASE YOUR E-READER
Reading by the pool is a dangerous affair whether you have a paper book or an electronic one. Put all your fears to rest with a waterproof e-reader case, good for not only keeping water out but sand as well.
BUY A WATERPROOF SPEAKER
Encasing a speaker in a waterproof case is counterproductive since this would muffle the music. Instead what you need is a portable speaker designed for the poolside with waterproof features. Choose one with a long battery life, good Bluetooth range and ability to project sound at 360 degrees. You may not want to dunk the speaker in the pool, but a splash here and there is completely harmless.
