The Must-Have Tech To Invest In For Summer 2021
Since the coronavirus pandemic will have most likely ruined your summer plans, why not look ahead to next year’s summer instead when COVID-19 will – hopefully – be all but a distant memory?
It’s never too early to start saving and planning, after all. And, especially after the months on end of lockdown we’ve all had to endure this year, there’s no better way to embrace your post-lockdown freedom than by making sure next summer is the best one yet.
So, how can you ensure that’s the case? With the best tech and gadgets of course!
Join us as we run through some of the must-have tech we think you should spend your hard-earned money on, ready for next year’s summer.
From innovative wearables to the latest in outdoor technology, these gadgets are a sure-fire way to ensure next summer will be one to remember.
Poolcandy Splash Runner 2.0
Following the news that an infinity pool is soon to be built at the very top of a London skyscraper, seemingly anything is possible within the world of swimming pool technology.
With this in mind, the Poolcandy Splash Runner 2.0 takes inflatable swimming pool floats to the next level.
Featuring a 3-blade propeller, a battery-powered motor and a 360-degree controlled joystick, these floats allow you to effectively drive around pools, lakes and rivers with ease, enabling you to simply lay back, relax and then head back to shore.
Why settle for a bog-standard Lilo or inflatable whale of some variety, when you could spend your time on the water relaxing on one of these bad boys.
Fujifilm Instax Smartphone Printer
No summer would be complete without taking a few hundred photographs to remember it by. So, why settle for leaving them all on your smartphone
Thanks to the Fujifilm Instax Instant Printer, now you don’t have to.
Much like the retro Polaroid cameras of old, this innovative device enables you to print instant photos from your smartphone, retaining them as a keepsake for yourself or sharing them out with your friends.
Just remember to invest in a fridge magnet or two as well, so you can have them on show for all the world to see.
Smartphone Sanitiser & Charger
Following the coronavirus pandemic, keeping yourself safe from infection is probably pretty high on your priority list right now – and so it should be.
Going into next summer, doing what you can to stay virus-free will be vital towards ensuring the pandemic doesn’t come back in any way. With this in mind, say hello to the PhoneSoap Smartphone Sanitiser & Charger.
This device makes it easy for you to stay germ-free while out and about, providing you with a portable carry case that not only charges your phone but disinfects it at the same time.
Housing two scientifically-proven germicidal UV bulbs, these kill 99.99% of the bacteria that live on your phone, keeping you and your hands from coming into contact with any potentially dangerous pathogens or viruses.
Safe and stylish – now what’s not to like about that?
Even the most comfortable of earbud devices get annoying after a while, giving you ear fatigue and, most likely, a headache.
Similarly, sunglasses are all too easy to lose or misplace, often winding up at the bottom of a swimming pool or left somewhere on the beach.
So, why not kill two birds with one stone? Thanks to Bose’s recently-released ‘audio sunglasses’ frames, you can now listen to music while looking effortlessly cool at the same time.
The sunglasses feature built-in speakers for ‘immersive’ sound which connects seamlessly to your smartphone via Bluetooth. As if that’s not enough though, the frames also include a microphone for making calls and are available in two classic styles.
Better yet, you can even add prescription lenses now as well, meaning your headphones and sunglasses can come together as one complete package.
Price: Approx. £170.
Weber Connect Smart Grilling Hub
Put the word ‘smart’ before pretty much anything now and there’ll likely be a product out there which actually exists.
Going along with the kitchen theme, now – courtesy of Weber – we now also have the smart grilling hub, the ideal choice for cooking up a storm at next summer’s BBQ events.
While it may be a little on the pricey side, this device promises to turn any grill into a smart grill by both monitoring the grilling process and sending out notifications as to when to flip and serve.
In essence, the innovative gadget takes the stress out of needing to man the BBQ 24/7 by enabling the user to focus on having a fun, relaxing time with their friends.
