With Christmas coming up, now is the time to consider those items you might want to drop hints about to your friends and family. And if you’re into gadgets and all things tech-related, there is plenty to choose from this year.
Admittedly, some items will always border on the expensive side, but you could always ask people to chip in for them. Amazon Prime Day will take place over the next few weeks too, so if you’re reading this in good time, you might be able to encourage gift-buyers to check out the gadgets that are on offer.
So, what should you add to your Wishlist? Well, that’s entirely up to you, but here are some popular choices.
If you’re a gamer… The PlayStation 5
It’s time for another console war, as Sony are releasing the PS5 and Microsoft are releasing the Xbox One X. Both machines are next-generation powerhouses, featuring improved graphical capabilities, speedier loading times, and a shedload of new games. Which should you get? Well, both are very appealing, but the PS5 will be the only console to have platform exclusive games at launch, so this might be your preferred choice. These will include a next-gen update of Demon’s Souls and the action RPG, Godfall.
The launch date for the new console is November 12th and you can choose from the cheaper digital-only version or the more expensive model with a disc drive. If you’re a gamer, and if you want to play future Sony-exclusive titles such as the next Uncharted and the next Horizon Dawn, check out details of the console here.
If you’re a hobbyist… A Drone
We haven’t specified a particular drone here, because there are different drones for different purposes. There are drones that are perfect for taking aerial shots if you’re into photography or filmmaking. Some drones are great for racing if you’re looking to take on a shared hobby with your friends or with your kids. And there are, of course, indoor drones that are great for chasing the cat or the dog, or for annoying the wife when she’s talking for far too long on the phone.
To find out about all the different drones available, check out this drones guide. With a variety of prices to suit most pockets, you might be able to coax somebody to fly one your way this Christmas.
If you’re into keeping fit… The Fitbit Charge 4
According to reviewers, this is the best Fitbit available today, so it’s a must-have if you’re serious about keeping fit. It’s priced at $149.95, which is about the same as the previous model, so you may as well go for this one if you’re looking to have a Fitbit in your life. There are a ton of features, including activity tracking, heart rate tracking, a built-in GPS, as well as loads of different apps that can help you with your workouts.
So, if you’re looking to up your fitness levels, or simply wanting to beat off the Christmas bloat, check out the official Fitbit site to learn more about this health-boosting device.
