Element 55-Inch 4K UHD Partial Sun Outdoor Roku TV

In addition to anti-glare coating on tempered glass that’s four times stronger than normal glass, according to Element, this 55-inch outdoor TV is designed to work in temperatures as cold as -4 degrees Fahrenheit and as high as 104 degrees Fahrenheit. The aforementioned IP55 rating translates into protection from dust, water, snow, dirt and humidity — so, the elements, according to Element.

The TV boasts a screen brightness of 700 nits, more than doubling the brightness of the brand’s standard indoor TVs, Element says. With the Roku TV platform built in, you can access your favorite streaming services as well as other paid (and free) channels. And the new TV comes with 4K HD resolution, HDR10 and built-in speakers — it's compatible with voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, of course.
