So, it seems that over the past five years or so, all of our bog standard belongings have been upgraded in the shops to ‘smart’ versions. But are they worth it? And what is now available? Here we are going to delve into some of the different smart tools that are currently out there, what they do, and if you should consider them.
Smart glasses have really flung us into the 21st century. Now you can call people, listen to music, take pictures and videos – all from your everyday glasses or sunglasses. And in high quality too! The images look like they’re directly from your eyeline, meaning they’re a bit more authentic and special when you look back at them. Whatever next?! Many big glasses brands have released versions of these, including Ray Ban. They come in various different styles and colours.
Smart watches have soared so much in popularity over the past few years, and they’re only developing more and more. Now they can come with the following features:
- Powerful fitness features
- Temperature sensors
- Car crash detection
- Integration with other software
- Built in GPS
- Stress monitoring
- Heart rate monitoring
These are just some of the features available with smart watches. They do of course also act like a smartphone, with many of them picking up phone calls and messages. We are excited to see what new features will come out over the next few years.
With smart fridges, depending on the brand you have, you can see what is in your fridge, no matter where you are. There is also typically a screen on the outside of the fridge with different widget options, whether you want to view recipes, write notes, or check the weather. Some can track when items in your fridge expire, so you never have to deal with rotting products again! If you love your food and want a modern kitchen, a smart fridge is certainly something worth considering.
Smart Vacuum Cleaners
Do you hate to clean? Well, with the help of a little bit of modern technology, cleaning doesn’t have to be such a chore. These cleaning tools can navigate a space when you set them off, mapping out the room and making sure they cover all areas, without bumping into objects. Pretty handy, right? Ideal for you to just set off and leave to do the work for you whilst you put your feet up.
These are just some of the smart technology items on the market – there seems to be something for pretty much every task in our lives these days! The age of technology is all about convenience and speed.
So, are these items worth it? It depends on who you are and what is important to you. If you want to simplify certain tasks, and these pieces of technology enable you to do so, then yes. Consider how much use you could get out of them and let that be the decider. Christmas is just around the corner, so put one of them on your wishlist!
