8 Tech gifts your girlfriends will love
The holidays are here and what woman doesn’t like a little something sparkly? I know I do, but I like my sparkle in the form of bright, shiny new tech — and I am not the only one. There is just something I love about that new gadget smell.
Here is my gift guide for women who love tech.
1. A-Audio Rose gold Lyric on-ear headphones
These chic rose gold headphones with A-Audio’s distinctive silhouette and sound quality can’t be beat for the music lover on your list. The ear cups have memory foam padding for comfort and isolated sound, and they collapse for easy storage and travel. Built with 40-millimeter custom drivers, powerful circuitry and anti-vibration aluminum for premium sound, the Lyric also has dual jacks for sharing music with friends. (A-Audio, available soon $199)
2. Apple Watch rose gold aluminum case with lavender sport band
I’ve wanted one of these since day one. I finally got one, and I am in love. You will be too. It’s all about the quality and ease of usability we have come to know and love in Apple products, right there at your wrist. This Apple Watch features a rose gold anodized aluminum case and retina display with Force Touch. It also has a heart rate sensor, accelerometer and gyroscope with up to 18 hours of battery life. My favorite feature, aside from voice texting, is that it's water resistant, so no worries if I accidentally run it under the faucet. It’s beautiful, functional and the perfect gift for any woman on your list this year. (Apple, $349)
3. Lomo’Instant Wide Central Park edition camera and lens system
Lomo’Instant’s new wide instant camera lives up the Lomo rep. This fun, vintage-inspired camera kit features three creative shooting modes and comes with three cool lens attachments (wide angle, close up and splitzer), a lens cap that doubles as a shutter remote control and easy-change color gels that add a wash of color to your photo subjects. It’s like Hipstamatic, but in real camera form. I’m as excited about this as I am the USB Typewriter and Qwerkywriter. (Lomography, $259)
4. Nuyu Sleep System
The Nuyu Sleep System is made of a Bluetooth-enabled sleep mat and app that cycles through temperatures through the night to mimic your body’s circadian rhythm, so that you wake up well rested. It warms slightly when you are going to sleep, cools you down during the middle of the night and then warms you back up to mimic your natural circadian rhythm. Its starting temperature range is 69-105 degrees Fahrenheit, and is controlled using the free Nuyu app, which can be used with the activity monitor to track sleep. The mattress pad is also machine washable with a washer bag included. (Health O Meter Nuyu, $500)
