Consumer tech spending was predicted to reach an impressive $412 billion in the United States in 2019, with phones being one of the most popular, in-demand categories. However, with new and innovative gadgets being released each year, it’s no wonder why people are so eager to spend money and get their hands on the latest and greatest electronics. Whether you’re looking for the perfect holiday gift for someone on your list or you’re simply wanting to upgrade yourself, here are just some of the newest and must-have tech devices.
The newest iPhone
Many have patiently awaited the announcement of this year’s newest iPhone, the iPhone 12, and it doesn’t seem to disappoint in terms of the number of new and exciting features it has. Along with a slightly revamped design, the new iPhone comes with a “Ceramic Shield” cover that is said to allow for four times the drop resistance than the glass on previous iPhones, effectively making it more durable. Additionally, the iPhone 12 also has an upgraded camera and is actually the first line of the Apple phones to have 5G capabilities. With its long-lasting battery, water resistance (at 6 meters for 30 minutes), and improved display, the iPhone 12 makes for a significant and modern upgrade that many are sure to seek.
Innovation in wireless listening
While the concept of wireless listening is nothing new, some of the newest earbuds are taking the year by storm. Google’s Pixel Buds are just one new model of wireless earbuds that many are seeking after, as they not only have a great sound quality and extensive battery life but block out background noise as well. However, for those looking for a more budget-friendly option to give as a gift to a teen, wireless Mpow Headphones can present the perfect solution for those looking to buy for someone younger (such as a 15-year-old niece). This model of wireless headphones has the traditional band style, making them more comfortable to wear for those who may not like the in-ear bud style. These headphones also have a convenient folding feature, in addition to a carrying case, which makes them great for those who are always on the go.
A new kind of smartwatch
The Fitbit Sense is yet another new device that brings a lot to the table, particularly when it comes to the countless number of features that it has to offer. Not only does the new watch have the features that you would generally expect from your average fitness tracker and smartwatch combined into one, but it also has the unique ability to track a myriad of other things as well. From your temperature to your blood oxygen levels and stress, the watch even boasts an FDA-cleared electrocardiogram, thus taking it to a whole other level. With a sleek and attractive design, the Sense is a wearable that truly allows you to get much more out of the user experience when it comes to monitoring your health than other leading smartwatches.
With technology advancing more and more each year, there is no shortage of new gadgets in 2020. From wireless headphones to the new iPhone and even a new Fitbit, there is plenty of new tech that everyone is after this year.
