6 Top Tech Holiday Gifts for Road Warriors


Apple Watch Series 3 LTE

The Apple Watch Series 3 LTE is sure to be at the top of every gadget geek’s holiday wish list this year. While the previous model required you to be on the same Wi-Fi network or within Bluetooth range of your phone (about 100 feet), this model’s built in LTE allows you can be on the opposite side of the world from your phone and still read emails and answer calls with your watch. But that’s not the only impressive feature of the new watch: the Series 3 leaves the previous generation in the dust with its 70-percent-faster dual core chip and custom designed “W2” chip that combine to provide 85 percent faster Wi-Fi performance.

iPad Pro 10.5

Take your gift giving game to the next level with the iPad Pro 10.5. The IOS 11 redesigned retina display with ProMotion technology makes it brighter, less reflective and more responsive – allowing you to scroll, game and work smoother and faster. But you’ll really shine by gifting the accessories, as well. The Apple Pencil 2 has an increased refresh rate, making it extremely responsive with virtually no lag time so you can sign, sketch and markup with pixel perfection. The full-size keyboard features a smart connector that transfers both data and power between the iPad Pro and the smart keyboard with no batteries or charging required. And when you aren’t using the keyboard, you can fold it up to create a slim, lightweight cover.

Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) Classic Edition

The ‘90s called. They want their games back – and Nintendo has them covered! Make the techie in your life feel like a kid again with one of the hottest gaming systems of the holiday season: The Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) Classic Edition. It looks and feels like the original Super Nintendo console, but it’s slightly smaller. It comes with 20 preloaded classic games and has a few awesome added features like the rewind and replay demo to modernize your gaming experience. Get shopping soon because, just like the first Super Nintendo in 1991, this gift is flying off the shelves.

GoPro Hero 6 Black Edition

Avoid the bad-gifting naughty list with the newly launched GoPro Hero 6 Black Edition camera. It looks like its predecessor, but the new edition gives tech junkies so many choices, they won’t know what to capture first. Check out these features:  touch zoom, low light performance, waterproof up to 33 feet, advanced image stabilization and hands-free control. The 6 delivers the GoPro’s best image to date, shooting in 4K at 60 frames per second and 1080p slow motion at 240 frames per second.  And its newly improved Wi-Fi internal radio triples the transfer speeds of the last generation so you can share your moments that much faster.
