If you’re a gadget fan, you’ll have noticed that the world of tech moves at a dizzying pace. And for good reason – there’s something out there to improve almost every aspect of your life.
So if you’re looking for a new gadget to get your hands on, we’ve got some ideas below. No matter what your budget, you’re sure to find a tech gift that’ll tickle your fancy.
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K
The Fire TV Stick 4K is a powerful streaming stick that supports HDR and Dolby Vision content. It also offers a full Alexa voice remote, so you can open apps and control video playback with your voice.
It’s also fast, with a snappy processor and slick interface. Plus, Wi-Fi 6 support improves connection speeds and ensures reliable 4K streaming.
It comes with the latest Alexa voice remote, which adds volume and power buttons to your TV, as well as branded shortcuts for Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu and Disney Plus. It works well for opening apps, controlling video playback and checking the weather.
Lacie Hard Drives
LaCie makes a line of hard drives that can take a lot of beating. They’re great for photographers and videographers who need to take files with them on trips, or people who travel a lot and need to keep important data safe.
While there are other rugged external hard drives on the market, these ones are a step above. They are more resistant to dropping and crush and can withstand water, too.
They also offer a two-year warranty, which is a pretty good deal at this price point. They’re also USB-C compatible and offer the fastest data transfer speeds.
Razer Gaming Laptop
Whether you’re looking for a new gadget to use for work or play, the Razer Gaming Laptop is a great choice. It’s got a lot of features and can run a variety of games – including Fortnite, Apex Legends, Minecraft, PUBG, GTA V and more.
It also comes with a premium keyboard that’s RGB-lit and has 16 brightness levels. The key travel is flat, and the keys offer quiet typing sounds.
Tile Mate Tracker
If you’re prone to misplacing items or keys, a Tile Mate could be a useful addition to your gadget collection. It connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth, and can sound an alarm if you’re lost or missing something.
The Tile app also lets you track your item if it’s found by another user. That’s a big advantage over Apple’s AirTag or Samsung’s SmartTag, which only work with iOS devices.
The Tile network’s over 90% success rate at returning your stuff to you is pretty impressive, too. There’s also an optional subscription called Tile Premium that includes free battery replacement and a warranty.
Rocketbook Smart Notebook
The Rocketbook Smart Notebook has all the features of a classic notebook, but also connects to your phone and lets you save your notes. You simply write, scan, and send your notes to whatever cloud service you like – and they’re instantly backed up.
The notebooks are erasable and smudge-free, and they have pages that look and feel like paper. But what sets them apart is their ability to scan your writing and doodles into digital documents using an app.
Nothing is a new company that is hoping to inject some joy back into the smartphone market. Its first gadget is called the Nothing Phone 1.
One of the most exciting aspects of the device is its design. The transparent back features a ring of LED strips that form what Nothing calls the ‘Glyph’ interface.
It flashes in different patterns, colors and vibrations to indicate who is calling, what notifications are coming, charging status and more. You can also set different glyph patterns for each contact and pair them with specific ringtones.
It is a nice touch and helps to minimise screen time. However, it does require you to always have the phone face-down in order to use it effectively.
