Relaxing lakeside on a dock or in a boat? Kobo has Dad covered. The Aura H2O is waterproof for worry-free reading (up to 60 minutes in up to two metres of water). The coating technology applied to the device’s interior allows it to be fully submerged without the need for port covers, so Dad doesn’t need to worry about getting water on the device or soggy book pages.

With 8GB of storage, the Kobo Aura H2O holds up to 6,000 eBooks, so he’ll never be at a loss for what to read, and with close to six million titles available at, all the latest releases are at Dad’s fingertips.

The device is also easy to read in direct sunlight due to its anti-glare E Ink display, for a print-on-paper like reading experience.
