There's nothing worse than trying to read on a tablet. Glare all over the screen. Eyes pounding from the bright light. It's pretty unbearable.
And that's where the Kindle comes in.
Unfortunately, for the last ten years, taking a Kindle on vacation was always playing with fire. One slip by the pool and it's kaput. But that all changed with the Kindle Oasis, a new wonder from Amazon featuring a large 7-inch screen that reads like real paper, a thin and light ergonomic design with dedicated page turn buttons, an adaptive front light so you can read in bed or on a redeye without issue, Audible audiobook integration, up to 32 GB of storage, and enough battery to last for weeks, not a day. It also has an upgraded aluminum back that gives it a more premium feel than the other Kindle options on the market.
Waterproof wise, you can't go on a scuba adventure while indulging in a Dune chapter under the sea, but it can withstand up to two meters of freshwater for up to 60 minutes, making it ideal for the majority of watery situations you'll find yourself in.
