Take Alexa with you with $20 off the waterproof Boompods Aquablaster smart portable Bluetooth speaker
If you've got used to the convenience of having multiple Amazon smart speakers dotted around your house, you might wish that you could take Alexa with you on the go. With the Alexa-enabled Boompods Aquablast wireless speaker (opens in new tab), you can. The best part is that, today only, you can snag one for just $39.99 at Best Buy. That's $20 lower than it usually sells for there and at Amazon (opens in new tab). It's also the lowest we've tracked for it. There are few colors to choose from too, though the prices will rise tonight when this one-day sale ends.
The rugged smart speaker is IPX7-rated for water resistance and has been tested to ensure it can withstand drops making it perfect for taking on your next camping trip or to use by the pool. It has a high-performance 8W driver that delivers crisp, clear audio with impressively powerful bass. It pairs with your phone via Bluetooth and gives you up to 24 hours on a single charge. It comes with a carabiner to easily clip it to your bag as well as a suction cup which turns it into an excellent shower speaker.
The best part, of course, is that the Aquablaster has Alexa built-in so all you have to do is pair it with your phone when you're out and about and you'll be able to utilize Alexa's smarts wherever you go. Use voice commands to play your favorite music, get answers to questions, order products from Amazon, or control lights, smart plugs, and other smart home gear. Considering an Echo Dot (opens in new tab) regularly goes for as much as $50, the Aquablaster is a steal at $40 with the improved sound quality, added ruggedness and the ability to use it without being tethered to the wall.
Existing owners rate the Boompods Aquablaster highly with an average review rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars (opens in new tab).
