Scorching hot summer weather means activities at the beach, lake or in the river but water is dangerous for most electronics, especially cameras and phones. The problem is we often keep these items in our pockets, or nearby so there’s a risk involved when close to water. Making your summer beach escapes more enjoyable and safe for your electronics is easy with this selection of cool waterproof gadgets and accessories:
