‘Tis the season to be jolly – and up to your eyeballs in this year’s juiciest tech.
There’s no shortage of gift ideas in this blog post, and with Black Friday coming up very soon, you’ll be able to bag an incredible deal – guess who’s going to be the favourite family member this year?!
Alexa – show me deals on Echo products
If you haven’t got a home device yet – where have you been? Whether your partial to Alexa, Google or Siri, these devices make your home smart with a capital S.
Set up morning routines, turn your lights on when you’re away from home, place your food order or play you your favourite music – however you use your home device, these things are uber useful and getting more powerful with every day.
Our favourite is the Echo Show – it’s got a screen so it not only speaks to you and listens to your commands, but it can also show you stuff- like who is at the front door, the lyrics to that new Christmas number one or play you a news update. And with built in privacy, what’s not to like?
Undoubtedly the leader in fitness wearables, Fitbit are on a mission to get the world tracking their activity and most importantly, getting fit! So, if your loved ones are going to be making a New Year’s resolution to get in shape, why not help them out with the best fitness tracker money can buy.
We’d recommend the Fitbit Versa 2 – it behaves just like a smartwatch, with fitness tracking, sleep tracking, voice activation and built in Alexa. You can even set it up to make contactless payment, control your home devices and so much more. All this kit for under £200!
We’ve already covered our favourite advent calendars, one of which includes a mini version of this amazing piece of beauty tech – the FOREA Luna 3.
This cleansing and massaging facial brush is a new favourite amongst beauty fans – it includes an app so you can control the speed, intensity and other elements of your skincare regimen, with an anti-aging mode and over 16 different speeds.
It’s lightweight and holds plenty of charge, so it’s also perfect to take travelling!
Ring ring – never miss a parcel again!
Ring is THE name in doorbells. Doorbells so smart, you’ll never miss a parcel again.
This Ring doorbell is the best of the best – it features a video doorbell, which you can be transmitted to your home hub, phone or computer. You can see, hear and talk to your visitors and, thanks to the floodlights, it’ll work to keep you safe and secure even if it is dark outside.
The Nebula Sound Bar is here to boost your Amazon Prime viewing experience. With Alexa built in, you can access all of your favourite TV shows and movies, with a sound experience which fills the room and BassUp technology for an intense low sound.
KippyEvo – For pets that roam
Don’t let you beloved pooch miss out on the action – there’s gadgets aplenty for them as well! And one of the most useful is this pet tracker, KippyEvo. The small tracker slips easily onto their collar and tracks their fitness and location via GPS, GMS, Wifi and Bluetooth (so if they ever leave you sight, you’ll be able to track them down without too much trouble!)
Even better, it’s water resistant and the batter lasts up to ten days on a full charge. You can set up virtual fences (so you get a notification anytime your pet leaves a defined zone, and a virtual leash (so you get a notification when they are out of Bluetooth connectivity).
Stats on their activity is delivered to your phone so we can monitor to ensure they are getting the right amount of exercise and rest.
So there you have it – our gadget best buys! Have we missed anything you would include on this list? Let us know in the comments!
