Christmas is almost here, so you may already be thinking about the best Christmas gifts that you can give to your loved ones. And when it comes to gifts, tech gifts are all the rage these days. After all, who doesn’t like a latest smartphone, smartwatch or some other latest piece of technology? So we decided to prepare for you a list of top 5 cool tech gifts that you can give to your beloved friends and relatives on this Christmas. Without taking much time, let’s dive into it:
Apple iPhone X:
For several years Apple’s iPhone design has revolved around a fixed theme. There’ve been countless improvements in hardware, software and overall functionality of these devices, but the design has remained sort of consistency over the course of all these years. This year changed that – the iPhone X came not just with significantly improved internals, but also with a radical redesign. Apple once again showed its craftsmanship in full glory, and the result is a device that looks more stunning than anything else in your palm. To make it even better there’re things like face recognition, a super fast A11 Bionic chip and much more than that. It’s clearly the best tech gift that you can give on Christmas, though it comes with a hefty price tag of thousand dollars.
Apple Watch Series 3:
Besides smartphones, this is also the era of smartwatches. And Apple has been outdoing everyone else in this space too, thanks to some incredible watches made by its engineers and designers in Cupertino. Apple Watch Series 3 is also one such product. The biggest thing about it is the availability of LTE connectivity, which gives it a significant edge over its predecessors as now it can communicate with your iPhone from miles away. There also some new watch faces swim-proof, improved fitness tracking and much more than that, which collectively makes it a great gift for Christmas. The price of Apple watch series 3 starts from $329 and goes all the way to $1,400.
Google Home Mini:
When we talk about smart speakers, there’s little doubt in the fact that Google can provide the best ones. After all, if you’ve got a smart speaker in your home, you don’t have it only for the sake of playing music on command – you’d also want it to do much more than that, and that’s where Google is way ahead of everyone else. Its Google Assistant software, which comes loaded in Google Home Mini and other smart speakers made by the company, is way smarter at understanding things than Apple’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa. It recognizes up to six different voices, and can give customized responses by identifying who’s talking. And it’s available in 3 different colors (charcoal, coral and chalk) for a sum of $30.
Amazon Fire TV Stick (with Alexa remote):
Smart TVs are becoming more and more popular every day, but most of them also come with hefty price tags. Besides that, you’d also not want to swap out an already working TV for a Smart TV. That’s where Amazon Fire Stick comes to the rescue – it’s arguably the cheapest way to convert a regular TV into a smart TV. It allows you to access Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, TED and much more than that on your television. You can enjoy catch-up of all your favorite programs, and now with Alexa voice remote, you can also do all of this with your voice. And the best thing is that despite all this goodness it costs just $29.
Xbox One X:
Finally, something for the gaming lovers. The latest Xbox has plenty of cool stuff to make the gaming experience much better. It can now stream in 4K, it comes with significantly improved internals and a look that’s way more stylish and elegant than any of its predecessors. The 4K streaming capability is a boon even for those who don’t have ultra-HD TVs because it increases the overall output of Xbox, which means that you’ll certainly see an improvement in video quality regardless of your TV’s specifications. The Xbox One X console is available for $499.
