That option's already there in Options (Gear) → Status. It's global though, not per document.
I'm not sure why they aren't in a darker gray; might be worth opening a FR or something.
Additionally, on the webpage there are inconsistencies between the Description and Specification sections. For example, Description says mp3 and text-to-speech, but Specification denies audio-out and the list of possible file formats does not mention mp3.
Then again, I don't go to the beach to read.
Speaking about a consumer need for this type of device, Kobo CCO Michael Tamblyn said "When we asked our customers what held them back from reading more ebooks, many told us they love to read in the bath, by the pool, or on the beach, but believed that devices and water didn't mix. As we dug deeper, we found that more than 60% of customers surveyed said they would love to be able read near water without worry. We designed the Kobo Aura H2O, our latest premium eReader, so that ebooks could be just as common at the beach or in the bath as they are on the bus or in bed."

- The device is running an over 5 year old version of Android. Many apps won't even install because it is that old. There are a lot of manufacturers out there who don't bother updating their firmware. But this tops is all off, for this version was already outdated and unmaintained a long time before the device came out. For an 800 euro device this is absolutely unacceptable.
- The SD-card slot has a speed of about 5MB/s, which is extremely slow. I would have expected something like that from a device in 2007, but not in 2017. Have fun running apps from that!
- No automatic screen rotation - really? The device costs 800 euro and they couldn't even spare one of them for an accelerometer?
Android 4.0? Even Android 5 would be pushing it...
Tablets are pretty awesome.

Ragged Right Alignment: You can now read using left-aligned (ragged right) text.
Meanwhile, Tolino also released a new waterproof device with a bigger screen, exactly the same screen as Kobo Aura One.
Btw, "This product is not available in your country." Apparently I'm only allowed to get the Tolino Vison 2 and the Tolino Shine 2 HD.
Underneath the hood is a Freescale i.MX6 1GHZ processor, 512MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. You will get around three weeks of usage via the 1200 mAh battery.
Rekindling Amazon's old flame: 10 years later, can we get the original Kindle e-reader to work again?[...]I've been using it for a couple days now, and everything works smoothly.Let me rephrase that. Everything works as intended. Smooth it is not. By 2017 standards, the user experience is comical.
And what a box it is. Clearly designed for people transitioning from print books to e-books, the original Kindle box actually replicated a book -- or, more precisely, an encyclopedia volume, with a spine measuring a whopping 3-1/2 inches wide.
