Top 10 Smartphone Stocking Stuffers—Part 3
December is here and shopping for the holidays is well underway (or not until Dec. 24th at 4:45PM for some!). This week we continue our countdown Part 3 of the Top 10 Smartphone Stocking Stuffers (click here for Part 1 and Part 2). Let’s see what we have in store for this third instalment…
4. Wireless Bluetooth Speaker – Portable Bluetooth speakers can take your music anywhere now, without comprising on sound quality nowadays. Just connect your iPhone to these speakers or use AirPlay and stream your music wirelessly anytime, anywhere. Some portable versions such as the Jawbone JamBox offer decent sound in a small package. But if you’re going to consider a premium set, check out the Supertooth DISCO TWIN speakers, which we reviewed and loved. These retail for $197.98 at Best Buy.
3. Pebble Smart Watch – The Pebble smart watch is a Canadian success story that started on Kickstarter. With over $10 million dollars raised and and now close to 200,000 watches on wrists worldwide, this is the ultimate gift for any iPhone lover. It allows you to receive notifications to your wrist so you can decide whether or not to reach into your pocket and grab your phone.
A recent iOS 7 update now pushes any update to the watch, allowing for unlimited possibilities. Oh—and it’s also a watch too. You can find it at Best Buy, an authorized retailer of the Pebble for $150. Read our full review here.
2. Wearable wrist monitors from Nike, Fitbit or Jawbone – tracking your fitness, sleep levels and more is now possible thanks to these incredible tiny wrist bands, with the newest models being the Nike Fuel Band SE, Jawbone UP24 and Fitbit Force (read our Fitbit Flex review here). They connect via Bluetooth to your iPhone and will track your daily activity and sleep patterns, effortlessly in the background. The newest Fitbit Force, pictured below, launched last month and retails for $129.95:
Next week, we’ll end our countdown by revealing what we think is our top pick for the ultimate stocking stuffer. Stay tuned!
