The holidays are just around the corner, which means many people will be starting to look for gifts for friends and family. If you’re looking to put the WOW factor in gifts for tech enthusiasts this list can help narrow down your options. We took a look through what Best Buy had for the holidays and hand picked these hot tech gifts for the 2015 holiday season.
Motorola Moto 360: Smartwatch’s have developed past the trial phase and are now powerful tools that keep every tech buff on top of the latest trends. Motorola’s watch is not just fashionable but has great features like connecting with wifi, bluetooth, Moto Body Fitness (tracks fitness goals, and sleeping!), voice control, long battery life, and hands free commands. You’ll barely have to look at your phone when your notifications appear on your wrist. It may have a steep price tag, but the Motorola Moto 360 will definitely make the coolest gift giver ever!
Ecobee Smart Thermostat: The Ecobee Smart Thermostat has introduced remote sensors which takes thermostats to the next level. This new feature gets rid of the issue of having the temperature read only in one location, where the thermostat is located. With remote sensors placed in different rooms within the home an accurate temperature is read. This helps homeowners save on heating and cooling. If that’s not enough, it’s also the first smart thermostat that listens to Siri (that helpful companion on your iPhone). Ecobee is also native to Toronto so let’s support our local tech innovators!
Xbox One Fallout Bundle: This is its 3rd holiday season since its release back in 2013 but this year is proving to be the hottest yet with blockbuster titles being released. It’s the games that keep making this Xbox One relevant again and again. Some of the notable titles are from longstanding franchises such as Assassin’s Creed, Halo, and Gears of War. The annual release of Call of Duty is on its way as well. And then there’s a ‘welcome back’ to Tomb Raider and Star Wars: Battlefront. If your loved one is a hard core fan of any of these franchises, special edition Xbox One consoles are available as well.
Go Pro Action Cameras: It’s time for you to put on your superhero underpants and share your action with the world. The GoPro camera is a great gift if any of your friends or family are into sports, outdoor activities, or just looking to capture memories. There are many different models based on the type of activity you’re performing and/or how extreme it is. The camera can be easily mounted to your helmet allowing you to record your facial expressions or to see what you see, from your point of view. They can also be mounted to whatever you’re riding like a surfboard, mountain bike, motorbike, canoe, etc. The options are endless. And the final product is epic. You’ll discover just how truly awesome you are once you start recording with GoPro. Need more convincing? Check out the GoPro Channel to see what GoPro users have posted.
