Gadgets and water don’t always get along, but when they do it’s a magical blend of freedom and connectivity. Blogging from the beach is one of the best ways to get a tan and still get your work done. If you do most of your work online, then you might be interested to know what gadgets I just can’t live without at the beach, so here is my list of the top 5 gadgets you should never go to the beach without.
Favorite gadgets for the beach number one the Tom Tom GPS.
The first thing you need for a great outdoor beach trip is your Tom Tom GPS tracking system to make sure you get to where your going, and don’t end up lost. This GPS unit guides you from your home right to your destination with easy to understand verbal directions, I don’t know what I would do without it.
Favorite gadgets for the beach number two the Olympus Stylus Tough-8010 Digital Camera.
This camera is waterproofed so when you get out there to the beach, you can get right down into the water, and get some great pictures of your kids, the dolphins, whales, or whatever it is you enjoy taking pictures of. I personally like to get some pictures of the jelly fish and the dolphins.
Favorite gadgets for the beach number three The Kid Finder Remote Tracker.
You can relax on the beach while getting a tan, with this kid finder hanging around your neck. Just attach a bracelet to your children and relax, knowing you can always find them easily just by looking at the unit. The Kid finder has a range of up to 30 Meters, so your kids can run up and down the beach without getting lost or out of sight. While only one of my kids is old enough to run around, I would be devastated if she disappeared at the beach, but with this handy little gadget I don’t have to worry about it.
Favorite gadgets for the beach number four the iPhone 4.
Well the implications of this are obvious, if you have work to do you need a phone. You have to be able to keep in touch with your colleagues, and co-workers, as well as having access to the information you need on the internet. This phone lets me call my friends from the beach, make updates to my blog, take pictures of the beach and more. The iPhone4 is possibly the single most important gadget in my line up.
Favorite gadgets for the beach five the iPad.
For listening to music watching streaming videos and more the iPad will keep you entertained for hours all while saving your iPhones batteries for more important functions like receiving phone calls. Without my iPad I would likely get very bored laying on the beach trying to catch a tan. If you just have to have something to do all the time you really need the iPad for your beach adventures to.
Without these gadgets I really think I would be completely lost. While the water proof camera is just a nice accessory, it’s a very useful tool for getting some of the pictures you wouldn’t even dare to attempt with any other camera, and the rest of these gadgets are just so important I think my life would be changed drastically without them.
