I’m a big fan of Bluetooth speakers that can happily withstand the hardships of sun, sea, and sand, and my favorite of the lot – the Bose SoundLink Color II – is now cheaper than ever as part of this year’s Amazon Prime Day sale.

The online retailer has knocked off a handsome $50 from the recommended retail price (RRP) of the Bose SoundLink Color II, which is now available for $78.99 (down from $129.00). That figure marks Amazon’s lowest-ever price for this particular Bluetooth speaker, making this one of the best Amazon Prime Day Bluetooth speaker deals we’ve spotted so far. 

A smaller sibling to the Bose SoundLink Flex, the SoundLink Color II is wrapped in a soft silicone casing that protects it from bumps and mild splashes (although mine survived a brief but dangerous encounter with a small wave...) while also making it easy to pick up and grip. Its sound quality is impressive given its small form factor, and you’ll get up to 8 hours of battery life, too. Don't forget to see what Bose promo codes are available at the moment too.
