Four gadgets for the new year
There are endless gadgets out there for almost any task, and many of them we could live without. Here are a few that might actually be worth your time.
If you’re someone who likes to stay active or someone who’s looking to change their lifestyle, a Fitbit is the perfect gadget for you. As well as having pedometers, most models include heart rate trackers which work out how many calories you are burning, and the app can help you keep on top of your food intake and fitness regime. There are a variety of Fitbits to choose from: for the most high-tech gear you could opt for the latest update, the Charge 3, which is completely waterproof, or if you are more money-minded why not take a look at the Charge 2, now dropping to a more affordable price. The fashion conscious might also consider the Fitbit Alta HR, with a more slimline design.
If you are a fan of staying in with a good book, Amazon’s e-reader is also available in all shapes and sizes. The Kindle Fire is essentially a multi-functional tablet for a fraction of the price you pay for market competitors – which will allow you to watch TV, download gaming apps and access betting sign up offers on your browser – whilst the Kindle Paperwhite offers an experience closer to the feel of a real book using special electric ink technology. Whatever your preference, you will be able to take your favourite literature wherever you go without the need for a bigger suitcase.
It’s now possible to take your own aerial films at a previously unthinkable price. Providing you don’t crash your hardware into the Christmas tree, the upfront cost is far more reasonable when you consider the new world of exciting footage that you can access. Whether you are an amateur filmmaker looking to experiment or simply nostalgic for an upgrade to the remote-controlled cars of your childhood, a drone could be the perfect buy.
This may seem uninspired compared to the other suggestions, but when it comes to convenience, this simple accessory is worth your attention. Wireless chargers compatible with the latest mobile models such as the most recent offering from Native Union will power your phone up at great speeds without requiring you to fumble for a cable. In addition, if you have an Apple and your best friend has an Android, they can use it too. Not to mention that they look sleek and stylish.
