Gadgets for Spring Break at Caya

Comments 146 by Rebecca Bollwitt

I had been by Caya before but had no idea that it was a series of boutiques setup by TELUS that connects phones, photography, accessories, Optik TV, and imaging services. Their focus right now is on gadgets for spring break — capturing and sharing your adventures with friends and family. Whether you’re heading to Whistler, Sun Peaks, staying in town, or off to a warm and sunny vacation destination.

Caya Products

1. Glider Gloves ($29.99)
Thick, warm, and you can still use your smartphone without removing them. The anti-slip grip will work with any touch-screen device.

2. X-Mini II Capsule Speaker ($29.99)
Pocket-sized speaker that can broadcast your tunes from your mobile phone, laptop, mp3 player.

3. Fuji Finepix XP20 Camera ($169.99)
Take this waterproof camera up the mountain without worry. It’s shock and freeze proof, captures 14 megapixel images, can do HD video recording, and has a 5x optical zoom.

4. Urban Ears Medis Headphones ($59.99)
These headphones have a patented EarClick solution which secures the earpiece at two separate points to relieve pressure while keeping it firmly in place.

5. Liquid Image Dive Mask on sale until March 29th ($99.99. Regular price $129.99)
Integrated waterproof digital camera and dive mask. It is depth tested to 16 feet, has a five or an eight mega-pixel sensor and allows you to shoot 18-25 frames per second.

    Haha. I just heard about a great cave around the Victoria area, and other little places to explore, where having hands-free for photography would be a wicked, wicked thing.

    Goggle me, baby! 🙂

  58. PhoenixThursday, March 15th, 2012 — 3:53pm PDT
