Any portable boombox / radios with built-in "Alexa"? Mainly for the patio.

We've been taking our Echo Plus out to the pool as of late to listen to our Apple Music Subscription. I know they have battery packs which may be the best option for this situation. However, was wondering if there are any "waterproof" or any portable radios that work like the Echo / Amazon devices?

Amazon Fire TV stick ($30) plus a small cheap smart TV? Or just a Fire Alexa enabled TV? [www.amazon.com] $150

24" for $120 [www.amazon.com]

Or get serious and add a sound bar.....

There are numerous waterproof Bluetooth speakers that work with Alexa. Those and an Echo Flex plugged inside a nearby weatherproof gang outlet does the trick

I don't know of any bluetooth speakers with a radio.

I do recall seeing a CD player with am/fm radio and Bluetooth, but it needs batteries.

I've been using the Amazon Music app on my phone which I just connect to a small BT speaker while outside. Might be enough for your needs as well.
