10 Essential Gadgets for Summer Travel
Black Enterprise Magazine January-March 2019 Issue

With temperatures warming up, it’s time to get right for the summer. We’re not referring to your fat-burning diet or gym regimen, but your gadget swag.  Whether you plan to lay out on the beach with a book or backpack across the country, it’s time up your gadget game by adding a few new devices to your collection.

Here, Madame Noire highlights hot tech toys that will ensure you make the most of summertime:

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5

The beach is the perfect place to debut a new camera. The sun is shining brightly, the sand has an unnatural yet stunning glow, and the water is a beautiful blue. However, you can easily interrupt a picture perfect trip to the beach once your camera falls into the water.

With the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FTC, you won’t have to worry about water damage. At $360, the camera has enhanced waterproof abilities and a built in NFC and Wi-Fi to connect your smart camera with a smartphone or tablet.

Jawbone Jambox Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

Music lovers, this one’s for you. Great tunes are meant to be shared and this wireless Bluetooth speaker lets you bring your jams outside. The small, rechargeable speaker comes in black, blue, red and gray.

Starting at $129, the speaker connects to any laptop, iPad or smartphone with Bluetooth streaming, and a system for announcing battery levels, voice dialing, caller ID, and pairing mode.
