It works within 30 feet of any Bluetooth device or phone, and streams music or FM radio and also has a built-in mic for phone calls. The speaker also comes with a swivel hanger, so that a user can hook it on a rack or rod, or can place it on a flat surface. For just $24, the speaker's sound is decent, said Linendoll. There are also other alternative beach speakers to consider such as the NUU Splash.

Scottevest gadget gear: For those who have tons of gadgets but no place to put them, here is a tech-ready clothing line aimed at making those gadgets easy to carry around while hiking, camping or just taking a walk.
