How much of a beating can a Bluetooth speaker take? Fugoo.

Boot Camp feature for Monday, April 20, 2015

How much of a beating can a Bluetooth speaker take?   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      There are so many very good sounding Bluetooth speakers on the market today…it can be tough for consumers to decide which to buy.   But if you’re the outdoorsy type looking for a speaker to match your lifestyle….a company called Fugoo has just what you’re looking for.  How tough are their speakers?   CEO Gary Elsasser…

“Waterproof.  30 minutes for 3 feet under water.  You can get it dirty, fully muddy, wash it off with a hose.   You can drop them six feet to the ground.  Our product also lasts 40 hours, that is 20 to 30 hours longer than all competitors.  We designed everything from the ground up.  We designed the drivers, the motherboard, all of the component choices, the firmware, and when you design something from scratch and you have 30 years of experience behind you with my team, you can really make magic happen.”

The sound is great too.  Pricing is typically in the 200 dollar range.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
