We know them for their watches, but Nixon’s speaker game is strong, too. The Blaster Pro sports an 8-hour battery, a quick strong Bluetooth connection, and the ability to pair with another speaker for some stereo action. Even better? It weighs barely over a pound and is water and shock-resistant—even surviving a roll down a steep embankment while splitboarding on Mt. Lassen without skipping a beat.
What makes it so tough? Chalk it up to the rubberized exterior. The tough rubber shell does double-duty: it absorbs the shock of impact when you drop it, and adds grip to the speaker’s exterior, which means there’s less chance you’ll drop the thing in the first place.
