Lots of gifts to start shopping for this weekend. Even if you don’t make it to the deals on Black Friday, you can get deals before and after the major shopping holiday. You may find carrier stores are not only for phones. You can find great tech accessories. You may also find that speakers are now more than wireless, they have “smart assistants”. Here’s a list of great tech accessories and where you can buy them. I’ll keep updating the list as gift ideas show up.
Fitbit has a great lineup of activity trackers. The Fitbit Versa Smartwatch is a great mix of both activity tracker and smartwatch features. If you know someone who is a semi-serious about fitness but wants some smartwatch features such as notifications and music playback, they will enjoy the Fitbit Versa. You can pick it up or order it at Verizon stores too. Verizon will have a sale where you can get up to $50 off.
JBL Link Speaker
One of my favorite speakers. It’s waterproof, has a smart assistant, it’s portable and sounds great. What else do you need in a smart speaker? If you want the JBL Link sound with a display, you may want to check out the Link View. JBL sound with a visual Google Assistant. Check out the review here.
Give the gift of a beautiful picture. With the Keepsake app, you can upload a pic, choose the right frame and send it to that special someone. An easy personalized gift that anyone would love.
Logitech MX Vertical Mouse
One of my favorite gadgets that I reviewed this year, the MX Vertical Mouse. Anyone who is glued to their workstation will appreciate the relief the MX Vertical mouse brings. A great stocking stuffer. You can check out the full review here.
NVIDIA Shield TV
One of the best, if not the best AndroidTV streamer out there, the NVIDIA Shield TV does it all. Allows you to watch and stream all types of content in 4K. You can game with it if you have the NVIDIA controller. You can also use Google Assistant to control it and the other smart gadgets in your home. For Black Friday, they are offering $40 and a Google Home Mini speaker. Check out the review here.
Huawei MateBook D
The MateBook D from Huawei is a solid device. With a great keyboard and aluminum build, the MateBook D can help with getting lots of work done throughout the day. The best part of the MateBook D is the long-lasting battery life.
Nixplay Seed Frame
For the person that has many memories to share, they will enjoy the Nixplay Seed Digital frame. It doesn’t use memory cards. Works over Wifi, so it’s easy to update the picture roll. Use the app to create, add and edit picture playlists from where ever you are. You can even link it to Google Photos albums. It’s available in different sizes.
Case-Mate Case for Galaxy Note9 and iPhone Xs
For the person who enjoys all of the glitter and sparkly things. They will love the cases from CaseMate. CaseMate has cases for the latest iPhones (Xs, Xs Max, XR). Lots to choose from.
Marshall Major III Headphones
A veteran in the music industry, Marshall has a few headphones out on the market. The Major III are wireless headphones that aren’t too large and don’t skimp on the sound. The person on your list that enjoys great sound with a simple look will enjoy these.
