We live in a time of incredible innovation, major advances in technology, and, of course, some very cool gadgets. From AI smart devices, to genius tools that can be carried on you at all times, all manner of once unthinkable tech is now available to the masses.
You can pick up anything from incredible wireless speakers to hydration biosensors and everything in between. We are living in a golden age of gadgets and tech but it can be difficult to know what is the best of the best.
To make your life easier, we’ve done the research so you don’t have to. Here are our picks for the best gadgets and new tech money can buy in 2023.
Promising crystal clear sound and up to 36 hours of battery life (nine hours from the earbuds themselves and 27 hours from the included charging case), the Beats Studio Buds+ wireless earphones are definitely a cool gadget.
Microphones in the Studio Buds+ ensure that you can not only listen to clear and bassy music without dangling cables but also take calls. With one-touch pairing to Apple devices and Android you can easily set up a Find My account for the earbuds to help find them if they’ve gone missing.
Best yet, the Beats Studio Buds+ are available in three colours, including transparent (which is super cool) and come with four sizes of eartip options so you can personalise your fit to match your ears.
This little Bluetooth speaker is ideal for those who want to listen to some tunes in the shower. It’s fully waterproof, cheap, and comes in three different colours. You can even pair two together for stereo sound.
Better yet, at 50 per cent volume, the Ikea Vappeby shower speaker promises up to 80 hours of battery life on a full charge.
It is worth noting that the IP67 waterproofing is only so good, soaking the speaker can affect acoustic performance temporarily, but this is one of the best cheap portable speaker that works in the shower.
