The Digital Connectors You Need For The Summer
Stay connected and stay active with these digital accessories
It’s hard to get disconnected in today’s world, especially when so much of our life is shared, stored and dependent on technology. Which is why we have compiled a list of important digital connectors that you need to have with you this summer. They’ll help keep you up to date and informed, and they’ll allow you to share what you want, as you want it.
A strong powerbank.
While you’re out at the beach this summer, or on a trek up a mountain, you’re not going to have an outlet to keep your devices charged and working. Which is why a powerbank is first on our list. Without battery, what use is a smartphone, a laptop or a tablet? Practically nothing, unless you want to barter for some drinks.
We suggest the Yoobao M20 Plus Powerbank (P1,480), which has a 20,000mAh capacity. That means multiple charges at a time, which is exactly what you’ll want.
A reliable camera.
If there are no photos to prove you’ve been somewhere, were you really there? Yes, but you’ll still want pictures to help keep some of your memories alive. It’s best to go out with a camera that can do it all, and by this we mean you can take it to any terrain and to all weather conditions.
Try out the Supremo 4k WiFi Action Camera (P4,390) to get those crisp photos you’ll want to post with #NoFilter. Bonus points: You won’t have to worry about getting it wet because it’s completely water proof until 30 meters deep.
A portable speaker.
The waves and the wind might be calming to listen to, but our advice is to bring some portable speakers with you for those nights you want a change of pace. They’ll help keep your nights livelier and your days more cheerful. You can’t spend all those days reflecting, right?
With a battery life of 8 hours, you cannot go wrong with the Nude Audio M (P2,990). It connects via Bluetooth, too, so you won’t have to stay close to change up your tunes.
A trustworthy fitness tracker.
If you want to keep that summer bod for more than a few weeks, you’ll need something to keep you on track. You may not have the chance to be as strict with your diet when you’re being one with nature, but it’s best to still know where you stand.
The Fitbit Alta Fitness Wristband (P6,470) keeps track of your productivity, including calories burned, steps and distance covered. It will also show you your routine, so you’ll be able to see the difference. But hey, when on vacation, you can slip a little right? #TreatYoSelf.
