Clumsy with your gadgets? This tablet may just be your superhero. It can be dropped up to two meters and still survive.

If you’re the outdoorsy and more adventurous type, this tab can accompany you on pretty much any excursion thanks to its ultra-tough nature backed by being waterproof and dust proof.  Along with running the latest version of Windows, it’s pretty strong in other aspects of the specs front, too, packed with a Core i5 processor, 128GB drive, and 4G connectivity.

This portable wireless speaker with NFC comes with a built-in battery and handle with smooth looks. It has a battery life of up to eight hours and a one-tap connection via NFC. Awesome for outdoors use, you can enjoy heavy-bass on-the-go and simply charge with a USB. Our favorite part about it is the built-in mic that lets you use it as a speakerphone and take calls from it. You can easily switch between playing music and getting phone calls.

The summer regattas are in full throttle and if you’re spending more time than usual on the sail, this watch may come in handy.

Its topnotch timer is reliably accurate for clear markings to keep you ready for competitive sailing- if that’s your cup of tea.
