We’re making a list, we’re checking it twice….
We’ve compiled a list of the best tech gifts this Christmas – which one is on your wish list?
Apple Watch Series 4
Apple claims to have “redesigned and re-engineered” the Apple Watch to “help you stay even more active, healthy and connected”. To be fair, they have thought of pretty much everything in this tiny device – from podcasts to pace tracking – it’s all there. And what’s also nice is that it’s not for one particular demographic – with the largest display if any Apple watch, it includes fall detection and Emergency SOS feature, which we like. And it looks pretty smart too.
- Activity sharing with friends.
- Personalised coaching.
- Monthly challenges.
- Siri Shortcuts
- Cadence and pace alerts
- Fall Detection and Emergency SOS
Polaroid Mint 2-in-1
If you’re a bit more “old school” then you might prefer the Polaroid’s Mint 2-in-1 printer – enabling you to print photos from your smart phone, with all the joy of the nostalgic Polaroid look and feel.
- Rechargeable battery capable of printing 50 photos per charge
- Prints colour and black and white
- Bluetooth connectivity
- Software included
Beats Solo Wireless 3
When it all gets a bit much over the holiday season, what better way to tune-out than to slip on a decent set of head phones to drown out the Christmas din?
With up to 40 hours of battery life Beats Solo Wireless 3 is the perfect gift for commuters and music lovers. It combines comfort and fashion with ten different colours available.

The most exciting item for the active techy! With a 12MP camera upgraded stabilisation feature, the Hero 7 gives the best shot possible, every time.

As we’re approaching Christmas party season, there will be plenty of people who wish they had one of these! Tile Mate is the perfect gift for those who are always misplacing their belongings. Tile Mate is a small and cheap tracker than can be attached to your keys, laptop, bag etc. to ensure they never get lost. Tile Mate can be linked to your phone, laptop or tablet by Bluetooth.
