No - Aqua Dew features Alexa wake-word technology and can operate as a standalone smart speaker. Simply connect Aqua Dew to your Wifi and use Alexa wherever you like. Think of Aqua Dew as a rugged, waterproof Echo speaker.
Great questions and...no. Please don’t. Aqua Dew is IPX5 WATER RESISTANT. That means you can spray Aqua Dew with water jets way more powerful than your shower head. But the speaker is not designed to be submerged in water...the reason for that being that we don’t know many people who would listen to Music, Audiobooks or their news briefing under water.
Aqua Dew contains a rechargeable battery which can provide up to 8 hours of continuous playtime. The speaker shuts off automatically after 20 min of inactivity. The product comes with a micro USB connector to keep Alexa juiced up.
When we designed Aqua Dew, we put a lot of focus on ensuring that the speakers mounting is as varied as your bathroom. The speaker can easily be wrapped around pipes or shower heads. It The package also contains a suction cup for mounting onto glass or tile surfaces. If neither of those options work for you, then we included a mounting plate with 3M tape that will stick to any surface.
At the moment, we plan on producing the speaker in four different colors: 1) Black 2) White 3) Navy Blue and 4) Turquoise. However, if you really want to see another color and if we receive a critical number requests from backers, then we are open to manufacturing additional variations.
Simply sign up to our Aqua Dew App (which will be available in both App store & Google Play on Jan 2019 - it is still in beta version). You can follow the setup instructions in the App and login to your Alexa account after connecting your speaker successfully.
