The countdown to Christmas has well and truly begun, and Aussies are set to spend big on gifts this year. If the pre-Christmas sales are anything to go by, tech and gadgets are hot items for shoppers this festive season.
But if you want our top tech picks for Christmas, then let’s take a look at 3 really useful gadgets for under $100. Spoil your partner, your kids or maybe even yourself.
We all know someone who can’t keep track of their keys. Gift them peace of mind this Christmas with a Tile Mate tracking device. Tiles can be hung on your keys and dialled through an app if the keys disappear. The tracking devices work in reverse too. If you lose your phone, you can dial it through your Tile to hunt it down, even if your device is on silent. All you need to set up the tracker is an app and a Tile account.
Mophie Charge Stream Powerstation
The only thing more annoying than hunting around for a phone cord is having to lend one (and knowing you won’t get it back). Wireless charging pods are ideal for those tech-lovers who are always on their devices. They’re also a great option for those with power point sockets in hard-to-reach places.
For a versatile charger that can power up a range of devices on the go, look to the mophie charge stream powerstation. This wireless power bank is compatible with all Qi-enabled smartphones, including new model iPhones, Samsung Galaxys, LGs and more.
For that friend who’s desperately in need of a car service, add a FIXD to their Christmas stocking. FIXD diagnostic sensors plug into your car via an OBD-ll plug and transmit maintenance information from your vehicle to a smartphone app. They can potentially save thousands on visits to the mechanic by identifying the root cause of a potential engine issue.
The app can also identify the potential consequences of ignoring an issue, so you know whether to act immediately or wait until payday.
