5 Cool Gadgets To Own When You’re On The Move!
If you own a bike or car and talk about it like it’s a member of the family, then it’s safe to say you dig travel. And if killing time and staying healthy are two of your chief concerns when you’re on the move, there’s a lot of tech that’s spanking new products almost every other week. The best part is that it won’t run a vacuum cleaner through your wallet, either.
Here are the top gadgets that caught our eye in 2016.
If you’ve seen Reese Witherspoon with one of these in Wild, then you know just how magical it looks to turn water from a puddle into something entirely potable. Without getting any chemicals involved in the mix, LifeStraw’s portable purification system uses a fibre technology, where you place one end of its tube into a source and drink from a straw at the other end. Voila!
Move over Wi-Fi-enabled digital cameras and DSLRs, because the Eyefi Mobi now has a wireless SDHC card that enables a wireless connection to transfer those photos to your web-enabled device (iOS, Android, Kindle, et al) via an app. So go on a selfie rage, we say!
We get it, you like running. You like to keep track of your calories and you want to stay in shape, regardless of where you are. Even if the term ‘fitness freak’ doesn’t define you accurately, the Fitbit Blaze is a great initiation into the world of staying fit with the help of technology.
This classic wristwatch calculates your steps, your heart rate, and tracks your sleep time, so that you know when you need to hit the hay more often.
What kind of list would this be if we didn’t find one of the best new portable chargers in the already overcrowded market of power-banks and battery packs?
The Zendure A2 features 6700 mAh, but more importantly, it can fine tune itself to the device it’s connected to and charge it at max speed, lets you charge it and your other devices at the same time, and can hold 95% charge even after 6 months in standby.
Move over GoPro, because there are ample choices of new action cameras you can mount on your bike/helmet/tripod, including the SJCAM. While the Xiaomi Yi has had the best reviews so far, it’s in a slightly different price bracket, lads, and that’s more to give GoPro a run for their money. The SJ5000X Elite, on the other hand, has 4K HD video recording and a 12 megapixel Sony lens. It has fairly decent audio quality too.
