We all want to make beach trips a little easier — the sun, sand and meticulous packing lists already put a damper on the supposedly fun day. In addition that, you've got to come up with activities too — things get pretty boring after an hour or two.
These beach gadgets are designed to be water resistant and some even use the sun as an energy source. Friends and family can enjoy and play with these gadgets, giving them something to do other than sun tan or jump waves.

The H2OPal is a smart water bottle that tracks your water intake wherever you go — you can personalize your daily water intake goals and adjust notifications throughout the day. At the moment it's only compatible with iOS, Apple Watch, Fitbit and Alexa — sorry, Android users!
This bottle will be super helpful when you're under the sun for hours at a time and don't always remember to hydrate. In addition, the salt will also suck water from your body and can cause some serious harm.
