Not only am I your Mobile Editor, I’m also a Red Cross certified lifeguard, and the speaker I carry with me to the lifeguard chair is the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 3. Working all summer at a camp in the woods, this speaker was perfect for tunes around the lake and the pool. Now the Wonderboom 3 is on sale at Amazon for $59.99, and that’s $40 off the full price I paid. 

The Wonderboom 3 is a no-frills Bluetooth speaker, so don’t expect the best sound quality of fancy connectivity. Instead, you get a durable speaker that can float in the pool for a great price. I got mine in red because, you know, it matches the lifeguard look, but there are four colors to choose from. 

For personal sound the Wonderboom 3 is perfect. It has just enough bass to help you enjoy the beat, though it won’t impress audiophiles. If you buy two, you can pair them for a stereo boost together. Do like I did and get a carabiner clip to hang it off your backpack.

The Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 3 is a great waterproof Bluetooth speaker for an excellent price. It doesn't have audiophile sound quality, but you can buy two for a sound and stereo boost. This is the lowest price we've seen on this speaker that's been around for more than a year.
