This way, it will not causes eye fatigue. During the day, the colour tone can be set too cool. You can even automatically set the Kindle to adjust colours based on sunset and sunrise.
Thanks to the new e-ink technology, page turns are now faster and smoother. It features dedicated page turn buttons as well. The Kindle Oasis is also super thin and light, which makes it easy to hold in one hand. It also features IPX8 certification so you won’t have to worry if you accidentally drop it in the shower or the pool. It can remain submerged in up to 2 meters of water for about 60 minutes. Don’t try to take it swimming on the beach though. And since this is still a Kindle e-reader, you can expect several weeks of battery life on a single charge.
