Best GADGETS of 2021

Our lives are increasingly tech-heavy. With the rise of streaming at home, Zooming and Slacking at work, every place we go and every part of our lives is linked to cutting edge technology. And so, it can be hard to differentiate the good pieces from the bad ones, due to the sheer volume of options out there. And so, we’ve crafted a handpicked list of our favourite gadgets of 2021 which took the tech industry by storm. From smartphones to laptops, have a look at the year’s top gadgets:

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3

The story of folding phones thus far has been one of compromise. But the Z Flip3 is the first folding smartphone to challenge that. Its screen runs at a smooth 120Hz. It has a durable construction, plus IP water resistance, just like you’d expect on a modern phone.

Fitbit Luxe

Fitness trackers are great, nudging you to take the stairs rather than the lift. Also, the Luxe is attractive enough that wearing it doesn’t feel like a chore, even when it does nag you to hit 10,000 steps.

Lexon Oblio Wireless Charger & UV Cleaner

This bucket charges a Qi-enabled smartphone, and while that smartphone is getting charged, the bucket bathes it in UV light to kill off the bacteria that it pickedup through a long day of handling texts, emails, and streams.

Apple MacBook Pro

The Macbook Pro is a step up from the Air, thanks to its built-in cooling fans, which enable the laptop to handle heavy workloads for longer without the need to lower its performance.

Oculus Quest 2

The Quest 2 offers a premium consumer experience in virtual reality, with stunning visuals and controls that let you interact naturally. It is the best value you can get in VR right now.

Amazon Echo

The smart speaker is the brains of your smart-home operation. The Echo plays music and gives you news and weather updates, but most important, you can use it to control your other smart-home appliances, including the new robot, thermostat, and other devices.

Yootech Wireless Qi Charger

Why plug your devices in when you can just rest them on a wireless charging pad? Now is a great time to get onboard through Yootech’s wireless Qi charger. With a wide ranging compatibility, this is a great wireless charger for anyone trying the technology for the first time.

Xbox Series X

The flagship Series X brings a pc like experience to a console. It’s faster and looks nicer with up to 8K resolution and a 120 fps frame rate. And though the Series S hard drive is half the size of the Series X, that is a significant step up compared to the prior generation Xbox One X.

Apple iPhone 13

The newest iteration of the iPhone doesn’t include any flashy changes, but everything under the hood has been improved. It has 5G capabilities, wireless charging, and Apple’s MagSafe technology, which uses built-in magnets to attach accessories to the phone.

Ecobee SmartThermostat

It has a high-resolution screen, attractive design, and dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity, which reduces interference with other devices and improves overall performance. It comes with a remote sensor and has an excellent voice-control integration.

Beats Studio Noise-Cancelling Buds

Beats dominates the cool-headphone market. Its latest release, the chic and colourful noise-cancelling earbuds, gives the users a brand new way to drown out.

Sony Alpha Mirrorless Digital Camera

This digital camera takes gorgeous shots, whether they know how to finagle its settings or want to stick to auto mode until they learn the ropes. It's also the smallest and lightest from last year, putting it at the top of many photographers’ wish list.
