Top 5 Xmas tech gift ideasSyah Ismail
Xmas is upon us once again and you know what that means. It means you’re going to have to do a lot of gift shopping beforehand. If you’re still looking for that perfect gift, here are a few tech gift ideas.
1. Google Home Mini
This Bluetooth speaker not only delivers good audio quality for its size but also has Google Assistant built-in. So, you can ask it to turn on the lights while you enjoy your favourite music. This is a great example of the power of Google’s machine learning as it can recognise different voices of your family members and intelligently integrates Google’s services like Search. It can even tell jokes!
2. Fitbit Alta
When it comes to fitness trackers, you can’t go wrong with Fitbit specifically the Alta. It automatically tracks your sleep, steps and sports activities. The screen will not only show the time but also notifications from your smartphone. The cool thing about this wearable device is it will remind you to move if it detects you’ve been sitting too long. If you don’t like silver, you can swap it with other colours.
3. Tile Mate
Every once in awhile, you tend to misplace your keys or worry if your smartphone will get stolen. That is where this tracker comes in. It uses Bluetooth to keep track of your items or devices. If it gets outside of the 100 feet range, you can still locate it using its app where it will show you its last location on a map.
4. PlayStation 4 Pro
We can’t go through a Xmas shopping guide without talking about game consoles. They are the perfect Xmas gift especially if it was just launched a few months ago. The PS4 Pro delivers eye-popping 4K HDR gaming experiences effortlessly. You can also enjoy amazing 4K video content right in your living room.
5. SanDisk iXpand Base
With the introduction of wireless charging on the latest iPhones this year, a wireless charging station would be an ideal gift. The SanDisk iXpand Base not only charges your iPhone but also automatically backs up your photos, videos and contacts for you. You can even restore it to your current phone or a new one.
