US Cellular Blogger Brigade Ambassador Program.
‘Tis the season for shopping malls, Santa lists and going a little nutso in the process. My goal this year was to have all my Christmas shopping done by December first. Not sure that’s going to happen considering I haven’t even started and the first of December is only four days away.
However, I can still whip through my holiday gift list in less time than it takes to say “All I want for Christmas is a Hippopotamus.”
For passions ranging from fitness to gaming and everything in between, wireless accessories can be a great gift for loved ones looking to simplify and enhance their favorite activities.
Wireless devices play an important role in our daily routines. According to a recent U.S. Cellular survey, 38 percent of smartphone users play games on their phones daily, 49 percent check the latest news, 14 percent use GPS and 34 percent use their phone to help monitor their health.
Here’s a few hot tech accessory gifts this year:
OtterBox Commuter Case ($39.99): With defense against drops, dust and scratches, along with two layers of protection, the OtterBox Commuter case is sleek enough to easily fit in your pocket while also protecting against the elements, perfect for everyday use or for the adventurer in your life.
Belkin WeMo Insight Switch ($59.99): For the person on your list looking to simplify their life, the Insight Switch connects your home electronics to your Wi-Fi network, allowing you to turn them on and off from anywhere using your phone or tablet. It can also put your home electronics on a schedule as well as monitor your energy usage and send information to your phone or tablet.
Parrot Rolling Spider Drone ($99.99): For the fun-loving adult or child on your list, the Parrot Rolling Spider is an ultra-compact drone controlled by your smartphone. It flies indoors and outdoors with speed and stability, and you can take photos with its vertical camera simply by hitting the ‘photo’ icon in the accompanying app on your smartphone screen. Its detachable wheels make it easy to roll from the floor to the ceiling.
Samsung Gear S2 ($349.99): Perfect for the health conscious person on your list who wants to stay connected, the Gear S2 makes it easy to take charge of your health while also staying up-to-date on to what is important to them. The Gear S2 monitors daily activities, counts your steps, and measures your pulse as well as your water vs. caffeine intake. In addition to answering calls and texts, the Gear S2 also makes it easy to read an email, check out a map, listen to music or access your favorite apps right from your wrist.
Powered by U.S. Cellular’s high-speed network with national coverage, mobile devices such as the iPhone 6S can work in tandem with cutting edge accessories to make the perfect gift for the fitness fanatic, gamer or techie, and boom just like that my list is done.
If you’re brave enough to purchase a cellphone for your kiddo this Holiday, make sure you download the Parent Child Agreement.
