In today’s digital age, we’re all incredibly fond of our gadgets. Most of us wouldn’t dream of heading out anywhere without our phones in hand and life before Google came along seems almost unimaginable. Technology has undoubtedly made our lives infinitely easier, but with so many new and innovative items out there it’s easy to feel a bit overwhelmed by choice.
Perfect for a hectic life on the go, here are my top five favourite gadgets to please the tech-lover in you.
With this smart and stylish fitness watch, getting in shape has never looked so good. Featuring a built-in heart rate monitor, GPS, on-screen workouts and a smart tracker to monitor your daily activity, this nifty gadget is a great way to both keep track of your fitness and keep you motivated. You can even receive Smartphone notifications, like calls, texts and calendar reminders – ideal for the busy worker or multi-tasker.
A recent addition to the Fitbit experience is the Fitbit Adventures, which allow you to use your daily steps to progress along virtual footpaths finding landmarks and unlocking incredible views as you go. I’ve just signed up for the Vernal Falls Adventure in Yosemite, a 15000 step challenge, time to get walking.
Who doesn’t enjoy kicking back on an evening and relaxing on the sofa with your favourite TV shows, news and sports for entertainment? If you don’t own a smart, internet-connected tele, this handy TV stick will connect you to a world of online entertainment. Ideal if you’re on a business trip away, it gives you access to a huge selection of movies, TV series, Netflix, Amazon Video and a host of other on-demand services so you’ll never miss out. And the voice-controlled remote is pretty cool too.
Ideal for anyone who travels a lot, or if you spend a lot of time on business trips, this smart suitcase ensures you’ve got everything you need. Complete with a location tracker, digital scale, an app-controlled remote lock, and a battery charger to power your devices, it makes travelling around that little bit easier.
Sleek, stylish and simple, with this pocket-sized audio player you can enjoy all your favourite tunes wherever you are. It offers an impressive quality of sound for its size, while features including Wi-Fi connectivity and an impressive 64GB internal memory are a nice added bonus.
Playing games on a computer screen is a thing of the past these days. Now gaming has become an immersive experience; we want to be at the heart of the action to really enjoy it. Enter Playstation VR, a virtual reality headset designed to transport you into the centre of the gaming universe where you’ll feel as if you’re actually inside the game.
There are plenty of titles to choose from with many more coming out each day but a favourite so far has to be Batman: Arkham VR where you are The Caped Crusader himself.
The experience of descending through Wayne Manor to the basement for the first time and suiting up as Batman before descending further into the Batcave is unimaginable. And if that isn’t enough prepare yourself for the ride of your life, hurtling out onto the mean streets of Gotham City in your chosen Bat Vehicle in pursuit of Batman’s greatest adversary The Joker.
Who doesn’t want to be Batman for the day, don’t just play the game live it!
