What to Look For in a Selfie Stick


If you plan to paddle down fierce rivers or snorkel in the sea, you’ll want a selfie stick to keep up with your adventures. Look for a waterproof model that can withstand total immersion—bonus points if it can take a dunk in salt water, too.

Stick Length

You’ll want a selfie stick that extends far enough to capture those panoramic views behind you. Some extend as far as 49 inches, though most range from 32 to 36 inches. It’s not all about the extended length, though. If you’re traveling with a selfie stick, you’ll want to be sure it collapses to a manageable size. 

Bluetooth Compatibility

While most selfie sticks have a hardwired button you can press to take a photo, Bluetooth compatibility takes it to another level. After a simple pairing, you can use a remote button to snap a picture, giving you much more freedom.
