7 awesome travel tech gadgets
There are few experiences as rewarding as traveling. It’s a way to meet new people, get to know other cultures and change your perspective. However, it could also be a daunting and unpleasant experience, due to all the planning involved.
Technology can help with this issue immensely, not just in terms of organizing your trip, but also in making it more comfortable and convenient.
The Skyrom Global Hotspot
At this point, we are used to having an internet connection everywhere we go. Not having access to fast Wi-Fi when traveling could be tiresome and inconvenient. Even if you’re visiting a country that has a relatively upstanding infrastructure, there might be a chance that planes, trains, and buses aren’t equipped with Wi-Fi modems.
The Skyrom hotspot solves that problem for you because it’s basically a mobile internet server that allows you to stay online wherever you are. It can be password-protected, so you don’t need to worry about anyone stealing your Wi-Fi. It does need to be charged, however.
A GoPro Camera
A GoPro Camera is a great gadget to have around if you’re one of those people that enjoy an active vacation. It’s sturdy and you basically can’t break it even if you’re jumping out of a plane or scuba diving. The image quality is almost professional and it’s relatively easy to edit them for social media.
There’s a variety of options to choose from depending on your price range and how you plan to use the camera, but almost all of them will suffice if your goal is to chronicle your adventures while traveling.
A portable charger
Portable chargers used to be huge and hard to manage and carry. This isn’t the case anymore. Carrying around a portable charger is now pretty simple and it doesn’t disturb your phone use in any way. It even seems like it’s a part of the phone itself because their designs can be similar.
These devices need to be charged before your trip and then they could be used to charge your device a few times while you’re on the road and don’t have access to electricity.
Long trips can be exhausting because you’re surrounded by people all the time and it’s impossible to relax and actually enjoy the experience. This is where a good set of headphones could be of great help, as it muffles the world around you and allows you to enjoy your own music while traveling.
A good pair of in ear headphones should be comfortable to wear for hours and it should be easy to pack and unwind in a hurry. This is best accomplished by having a detachable cable construction and a slick packaging system.
A tile mate
This device is pretty simple but it’s very useful because it solves one of the most annoying problems about traveling. When you lose something important while abroad, the hustle is even greater than when you lose it at home. This is why you always need to keep track of your valet, travel documents, and your keys. A tile mate allows you to do it effortlessly.
It’s a small device that’s attached to anything you don’t want to lose and it keeps track of it by using your phone. It can beep or show you where your belonging is, and it can also alert you if it’s being stolen.
Long trips can also be a great time to catch up on your reading. If you’ve taken a trip a few times and you find travel boring, you could get immersed in a book and pass the time. The most important thing is choosing a device that will be easy on your eyes and have enough battery life to last the trip.
When it comes to the choice of reading, you should always have a couple of options depending on your mood. It’s good to have something fun and light and something challenging.
A smart writing set and planer
Taking notes and writing a schedule is still best done using pen and paper. This is also the quickest way and it can be done under any conditions. This is especially useful when you’re traveling because your devices might not work, or you might want to write down some instructions right away. However, transcribing these notes to your computer and all other devices could take a long time (and isn’t very fun to do).
A smart writing set does this work for you automatically and lets you take notes in your notebook while they are being recorded in the cloud at the same time. This also makes it easier to set up a schedule and a reminder of upcoming events.
These gadgets will help you travel more comfortably and focus on preserving the experience of travel. Have in mind that using some of them means also having to worry about charging and carrying extra stuff around.
