Whether you’re a Millennial or Baby Boomer, the odds are good that you live your life constantly on the move. You may think that because you own a smartphone, you’re fully prepared for living on-the-go, but in actuality, you could be making things harder than they need to be. These peppy gadgets can improve your hectic life, allowing you to work quicker, more efficiently, and more effectively – from anywhere.
- Smart Watch
You may notice that smartphones and laptops aren’t on this list. That is because, in all likelihood, you already own them, and their roles are already well-defined in your life. No, this list is for gadgets that you should be using, but likely aren’t. The smart watch is one of those gadgets, and worthy of a spot at the top of the list.
Despite what you may think, smart watches aren’t mere gimmicks, and they’re here to stay. From the Samsung Gear S2 and Moto 360 to the Apple Watch, these devices are stylish, useful, and intuitive. Better yet, they allow you to take care of essentials – for example, check text messages or the weather forecast – with a simple swipe and glance. Forget your phone; leave it in your pocket (or bag) and interact with the world in front of you.
How many of us, outside of work anyway, actually use our computers for computing? Not many, right? No, for many of us, computers are nothing more than multi-media devices. That being the case, why not get a device that’s tailored to multi-media consumption? A tablet fits the bill perfectly.
With a mobile, lightweight, and incredibly thin form factor, tablets beg to be used. And universally, they have terrific displays that are perfect for watching YouTube videos, playing mobile games, viewing downloaded movies, and more. Simply choose the tablet that’s right for you and enjoy! Whether you prefer small or large, you’re spoiled for choice.
One thing is for certain, though: you should have one in your bag by now.
- Smart Keyboards
Most tablets have one downside that prevent them from achieving their true potential – a lack of physical keyboard. Smart keyboards solve this problem. A smart keyboard transforms a tablet, enabling it to be more than a simple multi-media viewer. You can type with greater accuracy and speed. You can interact with your device in new and intuitive ways (many tablets support keyboard shortcuts). Or you can simply enjoy the physical, real texture of a keyboard; something that a digital keyboard can’t replicate. With ample options to choose from at affordable prices, a smart keyboard simply makes sense for tablet users.
- Wireless Headphones
One of the downsides of consistently being on-the-go is that you’re constantly surrounded by noise. There are other people to contend with, piped-in music at coffee shops and office spaces, ambient noise from cars and airplanes, and other distractions. Noise canceling headphones help you block out this unwanted noise (without having to worry about wires getting tangled up or yanked out).
Among the best on the market are Sony wireless headphones and earbuds. Reliable, affordable, and built to a high quality, they provide for a terrific user experience. Even in the loudest coffee shop, you’ll be in a sea of peace and tranquility.
- Fitness Tracker
Being on the move constantly means you’re always burning calories, maintaining an elevated heart rate, and earning your miles! Why not track this activity? Fitness trackers come in all shapes and sizes, but one of their universal attributes seems to be their ease of use. They are small, lightweight, and easily worn on the body, whether clipped on to your clothing or around your wrist. A favorite is the FitBit, and one of the company’s newest offerings is the Alta. Part fitness tracker, part smartwatch, part fashion accessory, it aims to be the fitness tracker you where every day, everywhere. Discover what the fuss is about!
