The world has changed a lot since I was a kid splashing around in tidal pools looking for hermit crabs and other sea creatures. Whether you like it or not technology is here to stay and most of it makes our lives a lot easier and in many ways more fun. If you are one of those whole loves to keep up with all the latest technology than you will love this week’s blog. This week we have some of the best gizmos, gadgets, and apps that every beach lover simply must have.
The beach is the perfect place to catch up on your reading list. Forget all those bulky books and grab an e-readier instead. There are lots of great models but perhaps the best is the Kindle Voyage. The Kindle Voyage is one of the better models, featuring a high resolution display, a battery that lasts weeks, and PagePress sensors that make turning the page even easier. Now there is no excuse to finish that book.
Wireless headphone are a must no matter where you go. Whether you’re being active or relaxing and doing very little, nobody likes wires getting in the way. If you’re an iPhone user the Airpods may be your best option. However, there are several different brands that work great with many different smartphones. All you really need is a Bluetooth connection and you are ready to go. From audiobooks to your favorite jam, you’ll love having some earbuds during your Ocean Isle Beach vacation.
GoPro Hero 8
Remember the “old days” when you have to drop off film at CVS or the local photmat to be developed. How things have changed. One of the hottest items for any adventurer is a good video camera.. The GoPro Hero 8 is the gold standard in compact cameras. These versatile cameras can be attached to just about anything, are durable, and easy to use. Whether you want to film the kids or mount one to your surfboard, one thing is for certain, there is no better way to capture your Ocean Isle Beach vacation than with a GoPro Hero 8.
There are two big players in the smart watch market the Apple and Samsung. Both products offer a lot of the same features. Some of those are he ability to send and receive text messages, surf the web or even check the weather. One of the best features of these watches is the ability to set up Apple Pay or other payment platforms which are really wonderful especially when you are on the beach. If you like working out on the beach a smart watch can track your distance walked, calories burned or even your heart rate. All in all, these are incredible devices that you will wonder how you lived without.
This incredible device takes the guess work out of your sunscreen application. No longer will you wonder if you have applied enough or missed a spot. This device is not only helpful, but also one of the coolest items we found. Perfect for kids and those who have really fair skin. How it works is a bit technically, but basically it turns your smart phone into a device that allows you to see exactly where you applied sunscreen and where you missed it. Learn more here!
Sandless Beach Mat
One of the coolest inventions that I come across (and can’t wait to try) is the sandless beach mat because these enable you to sit on the beach without sand getting everywhere. Parents everywhere can rejoice. Everyone enjoys relaxing on the beach, but it can be quite frustrating when you have sand particles sticking to your body after being in the water or putting on sunscreen. Enter the sandless beach mat. Using a unique three layer design this mat is sure to keep the sand off of you and on the beach where it belongs. It may not be the most technologically advanced thing on our list, but could be the biggest game changer.
When you consider the fact that a new iPhone can cost as much as a week rental on Ocean Isle Beach, you quickly understand why you’ll want to protect it. The beach is a beautiful and fun environment, that is for everything except electronics. Sand and water can create havoc with a cell phone, camera, iPad, or other electronics. Grab a waterproof case to protect them from the elements. They come is all sizes and shapes and are inexpensive when compared to the cost of replacing a device.
Now that you have the latest tech all that is left to do is to book your Ocean Isle Beach. Did you know that late summer and early fall offer visitors some of the best weather on the North Carolina coast. It is also the time of the year with the warmest water temperatures.
