Apple has dominated the tech industry leading to a whole generation nicknamed the iGeneration. However, technology moves fast and with it comes to a bunch of gadgets that are designed to make our lives easier. Gadgets are not just for the millennials, they’re for everyone and I have put together a list of the 7 best gadgets for a more convenient and cool life (and they won’t break the bank either).
#1 Mondo – The bank as smart as your phone
Mondo is essentially a pre-paid debit card, and an app that connects together so beautifully you should never have to worry about your bank balance again.
Mondo is a contactless card that connects directly to an app on your phone to give you instant updates and visuals on how much you’re spending and what on. The best thing about Mondo is it will only let you spend what you have – it isn’t interested in offering you overdrafts and loans, it purely exists for your convenience. In fact, it is currently so popular, you have to wait while the produce your card, as the demand is so high!
If you do need to reign in your spending, visit the iGrad Pay-E calculator to work out just how to pay back those student loans, bank loans and overdrafts without the stress of a payment plan.
Another all in one convenient app/ gadget combo that connects the amount you exercise to an app on your smartphone.
FitBit is great for anyone trying to shift a few pounds or trying to adopt a healthy lifestyle. It measures steps, heart rate, calories and much more! A great gadget for anyone looking for some extra help to get fit.
#3 Recorded Television (and digital recording)
I asked my 48-year-old father before, what is the one gadget he cannot live without. His response – Sky Plus (Sky +). A box that will pause, rewind and record live television.
No longer do we have to schedule our day around what’s on TV. We can watch it at our own convenience and it has literally changed our lives.
Why I ever wasted my time proofreading my own work, missing spelling and punctuation mistakes, when someone could have done it for me, I’ll never know.

It’s cheap, convenient and most of all, a high-quality service that will save you lots of time when writing important things like essays, word documents, and presentations.
How much time would you save if you could press a button to find your keys the moment you lost them? This concept blew my mind when I first heard about it. It’s so simple yet so effective.
Attach a key ring or ‘tile’ to your keys, phone, and wallet. Lose them. Press a button and they’ll flash and beep, helping you locate them 10 x faster.
