ECOXBT Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
The only speaker on the market that is 100 percent waterproof, this rugged gadget is fully submersible and it floats, so you can knock it off the boat or drop it in the pool and it will rise to the surface (and the occasion), speakers facing up and tunes jamming. It streams music from any Bluetooth-enabled device and lets you answer incoming calls over the built-in speakerphone. And its rechargeable lithium battery provides up to 10 hours of play time. $129.99. ecoxgear.com
