Waterproof

Read in the bath without concern about water damage. The waterproofing allows you to truly bring the Kobo Aura H2O 6.8" eReader anywhere, and if you get caught in the rain you don't need to worry about it getting wet.

Easy to read

The Kobo Aura H2O 6.8" eReader is full of features to make reading as comfortable as possible.

When using the 6.8" screen, it feels just like reading from a page. The e-ink technology works in high definition, and there's no glare even in direct sunlight. Fully adjustable lighting gently illuminates the page, reducing eyestrain whether you're reading at noon or night.

Adjustable text

The font has 24 sizes and 11 styles, for a truly personalised reading experience. The margins are adjustable as well, so the extra-large screen is always the right size.

Improve study

Never lose track of what you're reading. Passages can be highlighted, and words can be looked up in the built-in dictionary. There's also the capacity to take notes, so the Aura H2O eReader is perfect for textbooks.

I chose this model for the waterproof feature in the hope it would be less likely to be damaged.
I find the built-in dictionary an excellent idea also.
Setting up was a trial; it flashed my "Rakuten ID" which it claimed I already had, and I had no idea what it was on about. Telephoning the Kobo helpline in Canada didn't help either as the girl who answered had no idea about this ID [from their parent organisation] either. Apparently you automatically sign up for Kobo and Rakuten at the same time.
Also the letter keys have to be pressed rather hard, and that made entering details [eg Passwords] accurately and consistently, difficult. Eventually I got an independent computer firm to do it for me, and unscramble the mess I'd created; not cheap. So that was tiresome. Once set up however, the device is OK.

Great ereaders, my 4th. Generally better than Kindle with more functionality although without the games I'm now not so sure.
New range (like this one) hasn't got the 'Beta features' i.e. all the extra games which made Kobo extra special. Games are a nice break from reading.

Nice size to hold and nice screen. If the battery issue was solved it would be a brilliant product.
The battery life is atrocious . Compared to the original Glo which lasted about 8 weeks easily, (and that included using the light)....this one only lasts around 2 weeks. Not sure if it's a software issue or because the light stays on all the time. (there is no switch to turn the light on or off)
