"Brilliant product!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is my third Kobo eReader and in my opinion is the best on the market. My first was an N146 basic unit; the second was an Aura HD, both of which I have passed on to family members who love them. All three were purchased with Sleep Covers which I wouldn't do without. These provide excellent protection and are so convenient. These are all really great products and the Kobo Aura H2O is the best Yet!

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I had to replace my old kobo arc and have been delighted with the new kobo aura h20. Very easy to download books from old to new and I really like the new no-glare screen. I like the idea of it being dust proof and waterproof although I don't really want to try my luck by dropping it in the bath! An excellent product. Highly recommended.

"As good as a book, but better"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I was weary about getting an ebook as I love my real books, but I am sold. Easy to use even walking to work. I haven't dropped it in the bath yet thought.

Worry-free eReading
Kobo Aura H2O is the first premium eReader to have a waterproof and dustproof design that allows you to take it worry-free from the beach, to the bath, to your bed. Plus, with up to 2 months of battery life, you have the freedom to keep reading, wherever you go. So if you drop it in the bath or accidentally spill a drink on it, your Kobo Aura H2O will still work like new. Just use the included drying cloth to dry the screen, so you can get back to reading.

Read comfortably, day or night
Kobo Aura H2O has an extra-large, no-glare 6.8” Carta E Ink touchscreen that reads like print on paper – even in direct sunlight. With ClarityScreen+, you will get a high definition reading experience, with crisp, clear text for easy reading. Plus, with its fully adjustable ComfortLight directing light at the page and not your eyes, eyestrain is minimized day or night.

Your Kobo Aura H2O will give you easy access to Kobo’s eBookstore, with over 4 million eBooks, comics and kids’ titles.
