Big tech ‘toys’ for the 2017 holidays
Oh boy, do I love the holidays! I’m not really even sure what all the hubbub is about, but what I do know is that this is the time of year when you can get all the best deals on super cool tech products. Here’s what I’m asking Santa Paws for:
A 4K smart TV
A TV is a go-to holiday gift, so why not make it a major upgrade? Watch at the highest possible resolution and even find TV sets with stuff like Roku BUILT IN so you can access thousands of different digital channels and services without having to buy any additional gadgets.
You don’t even have to use a remote with this media streamer—bring up apps like YouTube, Netflix and more on your phone and “cast” it to your TV! So simple, so awesome.
Ask this smart speaker to report sports scores, keep track of chores, read emails, control other smart-home accessories and more. What more could you ask for? How about controlling the aforementioned Chromecast with just your voice?!
Philips Hue smart light bulbs
These make a great foray into smart-home accessories—they’re both fun AND useful! Control the lights with an app on your phone, or of course, through the Google Home I talked about above. You can set timers and automate your lights, and get a little more creative with colored smart bulb kits. Playing with these things keeps me busy for hours!
A pair of AirPods
No matter what device you have, you can use these truly wireless Bluetooth headphones. They’ve got five hours of battery life and a battery-charging case; but use with an Apple device optimizes that power supply and pairs up instantly. These earbuds are finally available without a big delay after being backordered for almost a year (proof that they MUST be a great get, right?).
JBL Flip 4 portable Bluetooth speaker
Sure, Bluetooth speakers are at every electronics store, department store, and hey even gas stations, but this one takes the cake (or dog treat, in my case). It can survive underwater for 10 minutes and still play music, which is great for those with slippery paws like me. Besides its quality and durability, the speaker’s sleek and small look makes it quite convenient for any occasion!
Fitbit Ionic Smartwatch
You’ve got Fitbit’s and then you’ve got this. It includes personal coaching with on-screen video and real-time statistics to power you through whatever physical activity you’re enduring. Plus, lasting more than four days, its battery life is doggone amazing.
Connect this gaming system dock to your TV to play games from your library at 1080P, or take it to go! Portable games come in at 720P, but the flexibility alone makes this console a hit.
I hope I’m on the Nice list this year so I can get some of these sweet products. To be honest, I’ve chased Clawdia here and there a bit, so it may be questionable—but dear Santa Paws, I can explain…
