15 best tech gadgets of 2019

The end of 2019 is near and you know what that means. We’re going to be seeing all kinds of “Best of” lists over the next few weeks.

The top 100 songs of 2019 and the highest-grossing movies of the year, just to name a couple. Since music isn’t our expertise we’ll shy away from bringing you the best 25 albums of the year.

Instead, we’ll stick to what we do best — technology. Here is our list of the 15 best tech gadgets of 2019.

5. Wireless has never sounded better

Apple normally announces its new devices at planned events, so it surprised everyone earlier this year when it announced a new model of AirPods was being released out of the blue: the AirPods Pro.

These new AirPods were designed for comfort and fit without losing any of the great sound quality previous models are known for. They also come with noise cancellation.

Two microphones are combined with software to continuously adapt to each ear. This helps remove background noise to provide a true noise-canceling experience. Grab a pair from Amazon today, you won’t be disappointed!

If you have an Alexa-enabled device in your home, you know just how handy they can be. Amazon has an updated model of its Echo Dot with a cool feature you’re going to love.

The Echo Dot (3rd Gen) comes with an LED display that can show the time, outdoor temperature or timers.

7. This tablet’s edge-to-edge screen is breathtaking

Apple started the tablet phenomenon almost 10 years ago when it released the first iPad in April of 2010. The technology just keeps getting better and better.

The latest Apple iPad Pro has a beautiful edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display that is extremely impressive. This model has a 12MP back camera and a 7MP True Depth front camera that’s perfect for video chatting.

8. Great way to ease into the day

11. Now you can add Alexa to more places

Virtual assistants have become a daily part of our lives and are making things much easier to navigate. You can use Alexa to check weather, traffic, listen to music and so much more — as long as you’re in the room with the Alexa-enabled device that is.

But with the Echo Flex plug-in mini speaker, you can make any space a little smarter. This plug-in smart speaker lets you get help from Alexa in more places in your home. It even has a built-in USB port so you can charge your device.

13. Don’t get ripped off by the mechanic anymore

When your check engine light comes on, you’re pretty much at the mercy of whichever mechanic you take your car to. Hopefully they run an honest operation and let you know exactly what’s going on without any shenanigans.

With this BlueDriver LSB2 Bluetooth Pro OBDII Scan Tool, you don’t have to rely on the word of an unknown mechanic anymore. Now, you can read and clear your check engine light and all other vehicle systems yourself.
