Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year…particularly for tech lovers. We’ve sifted through the best new gadgets and gizmos of 2020 to help you decide what to put at the top of your Christmas list. Whether you’re buying for family and friends or looking for some entertainment on the big day itself, this guide has got you covered when it comes to tech this Christmas.
Adventures were in limited supply in 2020. Help the intrepid explorer in your life get the most out of next year with the GoPro Hero 9. It’s the ultimate action camera. It’s compact, lightweight and waterproof and therefore suitable for capturing a wide range of activities, from mountain biking to snorkelling.
There are many GoPro models available, but the Hero 9 is the latest and greatest. Weighing just 158g with 20MP resolution and 5k video shooting, it proves that big things come in small packages. This model also features a front-facing screen which is great for vlogging (and selfies, let’s be honest.) This is one Christmas gift that definitely won’t be returned. Priced at £329.99.
Nintendo’s consoles tend to have a much wider appeal than their rivals, and this is especially true with the Switch. What’s exciting about this console is that it offers gamers three modes of play: handheld, tabletop and TV. It’s also more affordable than many other options out there at £279.99.
There’s also the Switch Lite, which is a solely handheld device. At £199.99, it’s £80 cheaper than the standard Switch and comes in four fun colours: coral, turquoise, yellow and gray.
Cooking became a very popular hobby during the lockdown earlier this year, so why not reward the chef in your life with their very own restaurant-grade portable pizza oven? And who knows, you might be enjoying some leftover turkey pizzas in the days to come… Although for a price tag of £399.99, they’d better be delicious.
You can guarantee fun for all the family with the Lucky Voice Karaoke Machine, especially once everyone’s had a glass of bubbles (or two). With over 9,000 tracks to choose from, there’ll be plenty of singing and dancing at every get together from now on. Retails at £50.
We love our smartwatches here at Aspect IT and the new FitBit Versa 3 punches well above its price point. The new model features smartphone notifications and a six-day battery life, as well as an even sleeker design. This gizmo is perfect for the fitness fanatic in your life – or to encourage the family member who never quite manages to stick to their new year’s resolutions. It’s usually priced at £199.99 but you can find some good deals by shopping around.
