Great tech gifts your friends and family will love don’t have to break the bank. I have a pretty large family. It’s awesome for the holidays because it means more gifts, but it also means having to buy more gifts for everyone. That’s why I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite tech gifts that you can get for under $60.
I tend to lose my remote A LOT. So this device was one of my favorites on the list. The TrackR bravo takes stock of all your belongings – keys, pets, bikes, purses, wallets, laptops, diaper bags, suitcases, tablets, golf bags and anything else you want to locate in a hurry.
Simply attach the coin-sized TrackR bravo to items you wish to track, pair it with the app and then assign each item a unique icon to create a log of all your tracked items. When you need to locate something quickly, just click on the item you’re looking for within the app. TrackR uses a Bluetooth distance indicator to locate missing items within 100 feet and can ring bravo from the app using the manual alarm.
You can even ring your phone, even if it’s on silent, directly from your TrackR bravo to find phones hidden in between seat cushions.
Available online starting at $29.
