For all our techie family and friends there is something to add to your Christmas shopping list. This year it is all about being a little more “smart.”
Smart speakers with home assistants like Amazon Echo have been popular the past few years, but this year the smart displays are what to look for. Two options are the trend this year: Amazon Echo Show and Google Home Hub. They have the added feature of playing videos along with the other basic tasks. These gadgets can play music, answer questions, set timers, and control connected appliances, among many other things
Perfect to pair with those are smart home devices that your smart speaker can control.
Smart bulbs can be wirelessly connected to your devices for easy voice-controlled on and off.
Video doorbells are another highly sought option. Ring is a great option for Amazon customers. On the other hand, Nest pairs perfectly with the Google Assistant. Both options allow you to see who is at your door even when you are away.
Don’t forget the smart watches. For Apple product lovers the Apple watch seems to be the way to go. The newer models have cellular connectivity, so you can ditch the phone for a while. FitBit Versa is another great choice and has more features for the fitness buffs.
