Christmas is coming, and that means presents! If you’re into your tech, there are lots of fantastic gadgets that are hot this year. Here are some of the top Christmas gadgets that are going to be popular in 2018 – and which you might want to put on your own list.
Google Home Hub
Smart assistants are getting smarter all the time, and more people are using home assistants these days. Amazon’s Alexa led the way, but things have got more advanced over the last year or so. We are no longer using just speakers but screens as well.
The Google Home Hub is the latest iteration of smart home assistants. This product, which is reviewed here, is a hub for your smart home that you can use to control your smart gadgets (like your lighting and heating), listen to music, watch videos and even make video calls.
Soon, everyone is likely to have something like this in their home – so lead the way by getting one this Christmas.
While screens might be all the rage in the smart home, speakers still have a big role to play. And the Sonos One speaker is pretty much the best you can get.
This speaker is set to be one of the top Christmas gadgets this year. The excellent smart home speakers provide multiroom audio and amazing sound quality. You can simply link it to your music service of choice, like Spotify, to play your favourite tunes. And you can even use it with Alexa.
This is the best option out there if you want to listen to music rather than have a screen like the Google Home Hub.
iPad Pro 2018
Apple has reinvented the iPad with this design, which came out in October 2018. The new iPad Pro is much more powerful, and it packs the same size screen as the older model into a smaller format due to the smaller bezels. It’s light, powerful, comes with Face ID and works with the new Apple Pencil that clips onto the side magnetically and charges automatically.
Can it replace your computer? Perhaps not yet. But it’s certainly coming close. For now, it’s an incredibly fast and powerful tablet that is particularly suitable for creative types.
GoPro is the undisputed king of action cameras. It has a range of products in its collection, and the GoPro Hero is its budget offering.
This camera is easy to operate and even includes voice control. But despite being more basic than the other cameras in the range, it is perfectly capable of producing fantastic Full HD videos.
It looks sleek, has good controls and is ideal for beginners. If you’re planning on taking up a new sport, or going on an adventure next year, put this on the list.
Fitness trackers are getting better all the time, and the Fitbit Versa is one of the best you can get – and one of the top Christmas gadgets this year.
A smartwatch and fitness tracker in one, it is perfect for burning off all those Christmas calories. The gadget, which has been reviewed here, is ideal for any fitness enthusiast. It is packed with features, has excellent 4-day battery life and its stylish design means it looks great too.
