When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Anyone have one of these?

DOSS E-go Alexa Bluetooth speaker

Looks to work just like the Echo Tap that Amazon discontinued a couple of years ago. Except this is way cheaper (currently $34.99).

This guy gives a pretty good review of it

I just ordered one after looking at the review and info. you posted. I am in Canada so I think the price was around $65.  It will be perfect to take out in the yard and hang from my walker handle when I walk the dogs in the rain. A bit like a large high tech transistor radio or a mini boombox. lol Thanks jwlv.

Please let us know how it is after you receive it. I'm curious if it must use the app for its internet connection, like the Echo Auto, or if it can connect directly to a WiFi network.

The review from the guy on YouTube seems to allude to having to use their app. But the specs for the speaker says it supports WiFi.

I'd certainly would like to get one for when working on projects in the garage or yardwork. But I'm trying to save every penny for who knows what will happen in the future.

jwlv, I canceled my order thinking I was being too frivolous and might need the money. Sorry!
