Tired of dealing with dead devices, low batteries or little storage space? Maybe you’re looking to up your gadget game and need a few handy gizmos to help start 2019 off right. Whatever the case, we’ve curated a list with nine of the biggest, best and most popular gadgets on the market. Sure, you may have a few variations, but do you have all nine?
1. Amazon Firestick
Because cable is so passe, syncing your smart TV with a Firestick is the new way to watch your favorite shows and movies. Easy controls let you switch between live TV and all your favorite streaming services. You can also download apps to help enhance your experience.
2. Charging Station
Because a little extra charge never hurts, this handy charging dock features multiple charging ports so you can keep your phones, tablets, laptops and more charged at all times. Plus, the elegant design and easy cable storage mean it looks great anywhere – especially at the office.
3. Fitness Tracker
A built-in GPS helps track your steps while the smart internal sleep tracker helps you better monitor (and adjust) your sleep habits. A sturdy build backed with a water-resistant design lets you wear this bad boy all day.
4. Portable Charger
Keep your devices charged on the go with this handy (and discreet) portable charger. Roughly the size of a tube of lipstick, this charger offers speeds up to 1 amp for an even faster charge. Keep in your bag or pants pocket for a quick top up at work or on the go.
5. Car Mount
Remember those old cell phone car mounts that were extra large and extra wobbly? This isn’t anything like that. With a full 360-degree rotation, easy installation and a sturdy and surefire build, this car mount makes it easier to take calls without ever having to take your eyes off the road.
6. Smart Speaker
The latest Echo Dot offers more features, more commands and more options than ever before. With easy installation and tons of usability, you’ll never know how you lived without it. Seriously, it’s that good.
7. External Hard Drive
In need of a little extra data storage? No, you don’t need a new computer – this external hard drive’s got you covered. With 2TB storage capacity and up to 5 GB/s, this handy hard drive is small enough to keep in your bag but powerful enough to more than enough data.
8. Heated Travel Mug
Because no one likes cold coffee (note that ice coffee and cold coffee aren’t the same thing – for starters, one is made over ice while the other is just melted water with a bit of coffee mixed in), this travel mug is able to keep your hot coffee or tea at the perfect temperature, so you won’t have to worry about drinking lukewarm mush when you finally get around to it.
9. Noise-Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones
Whether you work in a loud environment or simply find yourself easily distracted, these beautiful Bluetooth headphones are able to block out any outside noise so you can tune out, tune in and enjoy the music.
