The invention of the monopod opened the doors to almost endless selfie possibilities as people no longer had to rely solely on the length of their arm for getting the right shot. And while timers certainly made the task a little easier there was certainly room for improvement. So in their infinite wisdom, accessory maker Pure Gear decided to create a selfie stick that was Bluetooth enabled with an in-line shutter button so you’d no longer have to reach for your device to snap the picture.
The Pure Gear Selfie Stick is small and compact, yet with it’s sleek aerial style telescopic arm can extend the length of your arm from about eight inches to just under three feet. It has a non-slip rubber coated handle and detachable lanyard to ensure it stays in hand.
Its head is made of sturdy thermoplastic and fitted with a spring-loaded style clamp as seen on some other sticks, but with certain enhancements. The upper portion of the clamp is fully rubberized. This allows for better gripping of the edge of your smartphone. The lower portion has a slightly thicker rubber, more like a rounded edged wedge, so when your smartphone is inserted the front of the rubber sits higher, making it more difficult for you smartphone to slip out.
