Amazon Prime Day is finally upon us and, like Christmas, there's that much shiny new hi-fi and tech around, it's tough to know where to start when you're scrolling through deals.
So let's start small – with a Bluetooth, portable speaker. Do you have one? If so, is it meeting your needs on picnics, beach days, hikes, parties and the like? Could it do with an upgrade to something boasting a longer battery, better sound quality, waterproofing, extra useful features, or simply a sharper aesthetic?
How about a Bluetooth speaker with wi-fi and Alexa voice assistant smarts built-in, so you could holler "Alexa, play my 90s Spotify playlist" without having to leave the burgers you've got going on the barbecue?
Tempted? Well, you've come to the right place – and anyway there's no harm in looking at the best-in-show. Below you'll find our pick of the Prime Day Bluetooth speaker deals live right now.
It's fully waterproof, promises 20 hours of playback and a 30m Bluetooth range. Also, thanks to Amazon Prime Day, it's less than half price. This £88 saving won't be around for long, though.View Deal
