The Kobo Aura H2O is a 2015 6.8-inch e-reader that received positive reviews for its 6.8-inch screen, which is larger than Kindle competitors like the Voyage and the Paperwhite yet still manages similar display quality. Many users were happy with the water resistance, a feature that makes the Aura convenient for reading in the bathtub, beside a pool or by the beach. Also praised was the impressive 32-hour battery life, as well as a more versatile support for ebook formats compared to Amazon devices. Critics had a go at the chunky design, the sub-par bookstore, and modest performance but overall, the Kobo Aura H2O is arguably the best choice out there for those not sold on Amazon Kindle devices.

    It doesn’t have the software of a Kindle, but this could be the perfect ebook reader for relaxing reads in the bath.
